    Hi mdram,

    Am having second thoughts about proceeding with the Direct TV install next week and wonder if I should wait until Direct TV and AT&T develop a new Genie 4K HD DVR.

    Just bought a Sony 75x940C that is absolutely wonderful when displaying HD and 4K content. Have Uverse that only has HD and the picture quality is very good.

    There are difficulties w/ early broadcasting of 4K content on Direct TV that need to be worked out. Do not watch sports so the current 4K content is not attractive. I would be switching to Direct TV from Uverse at this point only if HD content PQ is superior to Uverse.

    Wonder if it makes sense to switch now (early adopter for 4K in terms of technology and programming) or just wait and stay with Uverse until a new Genie HD DVR 4K device is launched.

    Thanks for any guidance on my concerns.

    In gratitude,

    Michael
    San Diego, CA
