Hi guys,


I left the dish scene back in the Voom days and have been with Comcast ever since here in Colo Springs. I've been playing the waiting game with technology over the years and have enjoyed Comcast's offerings up until now :-(. I've definitely noticed picture quality go down in the last year, especially USA-HD, Burn Notice's PQ is always lame compared to other channels; and with the $150 I'm spending for cable and internet per month nowdays, something's gotta give and I know I could save some money. PQ is a huge factor for me now as well.


I like my locals (watch a lot of prime time content) and basically all I have ever watched is HD for the past 2 years....haven't tuned into an SD channel in that long of time frame and never care to see SD again for that matter. One question I have for you Directv guys is about a new install and a 'move' address upon initial installation. Colo Springs has no CW-HD network feed and looks like we will not for quite some time; plus our local ABC station appears to be in a pissing match with Directv since it's the only local HD NOT on Directv's line up. So a Denver service address is very appealing at this time. Question is how to setup an installation to a ghost service address. Back in the 90s I had a ghost address for Distant locals and my bills came to my real address here in the Springs. How do I accomplish this nowdays??? Will dealing with Directv, a retailer, or QWest be easier to do this (looking to bundle services with them to save a few bucks) ? I basically want to get setup on autopay and not worry about bills but use a Denver address to get all the local goodies not in the Springs area.


Anyway to get the HD-DVR and a standard HD receiver for free for a new customer that is not advertised (2 1080p TVs in the house)? Looks like this is possible with Echostar right now? Echostar's all HD looks appealing as well as cheaper, but they don't have FNC-HD, FX-HD, and Speed-HD but maybe in Feb??


Any quirks or issues I should be concerned with the sat's DVRs? The Comcast HDDVR is limited on space but never had a problem with it in over 2 years so it's stable at least.


Any help would be appreciated, i tried this same question over at satelliteguys forum and got nothing but reads but no answers (except for one smartass of course), and I would have thought people would have replied to the 'move' address since this is done quite a bit. They are not helpful over there unless you like to rant/***** about things all the time I guess, lol.


Thanks...

Larry

There has been a Directv flyer in our local newspaper almost every Sunday for awhile. That deal is $49.99 for a Plus HD DVR package for 12 months. $18.00/mo credit and $5.00/mo off for Autobill for 12 months. I assume a 2 year committment. Free HDDVR upgrade. Free Installation. Free HBO, Starz, and SHOWTIME for 3 months. So if you drop the movie stuff - looks like $72.99 after 12 months. I assume that is the standard deal out there right now.


Ask for a 2nd HD receiver at the same time for free. They might say yes.


Never had to "move" so can't answer that. Sorry.

Thanks for the reply. Guess I can always 'move' later. Sucks though, lot of ABC shows I record, just will have to download them for a while this season off of usenet.


Bundling packages with Qwest so I won't get the 2nd HD receiver free since I have to go through them.
