I'm certainly not disagreeing with you, but I know someone who switched to DirectTV that wants to come back to cable (they don't live in the Comcast footprint). Every time weather gets bad, they lose signal. This past winter, they had to climb on the roof several times to clean off the dish. Two things I've never had to do with Comcast. Not trying to convince you, just saying.
I actually don't use Comcast equipment, as I have a Tivo HD. I do miss Comcast VOD, but they'll eventually roll that out to the Cisco side, and when they do I'll upgrade to the new Tivo (probably this fall). The Comcast DVR is really bad, and the SA boxes are also really bad. Hopefully they roll out the Xfinity X1 platform here, as that looks like a very significant upgrade (although that still won't get me to switch back to Xfinity gear, I'm too attached to my Tivo).
