    Right on! DirecTV DOES NOT provide Ethernet cable to the techs. so if the tech did it for you it must have been a "on the side" kind of thing

    It seems it has the same logo on it as the coax does, which is NO LOGO. I am enjoying how mad you are over my ethernet run. And, since you know so little about installs in my city, most of the installers are subcontractors, not DirecTv employees. You continue to argue about something you have no knowledge of. Relax and accept that sometimes things are done a bit differently than normal.

    I for one am grateful for ATT U-Verse. It's my best option in the styx, and while my upload speeds are under one Meg., I can still stream recorded content via GenieGo when I am away from my house.

    The only problem I have with ATT U-Verse is that the term of agreement mentions IPv6. However ATT-U-Verse is not pushing down upgrades to support Native and Tunnel IPv6.

    Brother, count the number of posts you have made on this thread. If you have better things to do, don't post in here. Your comments added nothing to the discussion of DTV vs ATT anyways.

    I just made a "quick" comment which was supported by others which seemed to make you "up in arms"

    She won, ATT is allowing her to opt out of the contract with no ETF, replacing the phone with a normal pots line. They basically admitted they could not figure out what the problem was. The POTS line is being installed today, along with the cable internet connection, she has DIRECTV coming out tomorrow to install a genie and 3 HD-DVR's. With all the specials for new customers on the internet and DIRECTV her bill will actually be less. She is getting 30/4 for internet on a special pricing plan for 2 years. Plus I get 10.00 off my bill

    At least she and the kids took my advice to setup a free email account and use that as a forward facing address, she will only have to change the forward to email address in one place.

    I am glad I asked the original question as I know now I would have been miserable with ATT. I am happy to have stayed with DTV and the Genie with mini's are much preferred to my old boxes. Last time I got a "new" dvr was in 2005. May be a bit of bias, but I swear I notice a quality increase in the picture quality. The response time for the box is a nice change as well.

    little bit off topic but since you mentioned this I give you my .05¢. I never recommend folks to use the ISP email address since it stops when you stop the service. there are domains to use as a free email accounts. gmail comes to mind

    I switched to Uverse before the Genie had come out. The thing I loved the most was being able to perform DVR functions from any TV and watch recorded programs from any TV. The other thing is that it has HUB in HD like every other provider except DirecTv. There is also usually no contract (there might be one if you bundle phone service with it).

    The main reason I switched back to DirecTv was the picture quality of my local stations. For whatever reason, the picture quality of sporting events, especially the NFL, just didn't look as good on Uverse. I actually switched back after 7 months with Uverse, and DirecTv gave me a Genie ($99), 2 HD tuners (free), and free installation of the system plus whole home DVR.

    I still have Uverse internet (18 mb), and I have zero problems with it.

    Not always true. When we left AT&T DSL for Time Warner Cable, they let us keep our email.
