Well D* (DirecTV) supposedly has the better picture due to bandwidth and some other technical details. I'd spend some time at http://www.dbstalk.com/
to get some really technical and detailed information, not that it can't be found here, but its all dish/direcTV talk there.
I'm agreeing with waltah above, I can't believe the companies like Verizon and AT&T have this fiber technology but yet consider their DVRs high end.
I was blown away when I called into AT&T to see if I could get the newest DVR STB from them, a VIP 2250 (currently VIP 1225), that is I was wanting to go from 300GBs space to 500GBs space, both are considered "HIGH CAPACITY" to them...lol...really? I guess they don't keep up with drive sizes these days. It probably doesn't help that I work for Seagate and so drive sizes are important to me, but 300GBs is almost like a 5MB floppy diskt to me, lol.
This is why I'm leaving AT&T this week, DirecTV comes out Sunday and Cox comes out Thursday for my internet.
I will let AT&T know that their service was fine, but it when it comes to the newest technologies, they let the competition pass them by.
I'm sure in two more years, it will probably be the opposite, just the pendulum swinging...
