    I don't know about everyone else but I've been with D* since 97. I've lost 119 because of trees and I'm looking at about 1,500 to have it solved. My contract is up next summer. If the HD roll out doesn't happen or isn't as great as they are pumping us up for then I'm going back to cable and hope that AT&T gets their fiber optic TV going soon.

    The HD roll-out is happening. I've been with DIRECTV for a long time too and had issues with 119 due to trees. We can't blame them for the trees, frankly I don't even care about 119 at this point. My hope is all HD content is moved to either 99, or preferably the 103 (at least repeated in MPEG-4 on the 103) since D10 is getting ever close to going live and D11 is still firmly on the ground. The HD content is going to 99 or 103 -- it is just a matter of time.

    My money would say forget the tree job for now and wait for the higher elevation 99 and 103 to solve your HD woes. 103 should be live within 30 days +/-.

    I hear what you are saying. I have to spend at least $1,000 a year on arborists to keep trees in line.

    That being said, take my word for it... DIRECTV has great things in mind for us in the coming months. I bet you'll be glad you waited.

    DirecTV will either hit a home run or strike out in the next few months.

    I predict a home run :)

    That is all I'm saying. Our local cable company stinks and I'm by no means looking forward to going back but laying out that type of cash to keep a tv service....well like I said they better make it worth it or I'm gone.

    True. I've thought about that but it looks like Dean is going to whack the Mexicans.

    I wouldn't miss 119 but that is where my locals are and I don't believe I can record OTA with my Samsung Tivo DVR. I would look into getting a HR20 but boom there goes another two years and I would still have the same tree problems. If anyone out there knows how I can record OTA with my Samsung I would be extremely grateful.

    Do you have your locals in hd? If so, it's likely that the new sat launches will get you the rest of them, CW, PBS, My9, etc.

    I'm sounding stupid again I know :blush: but what is WOW :confused: Is it a cable company? All I know is that the people in the Northern part of the country like it best.

    When I upgraded to HD equipment last year, I had tree issues.

    Solution = I have a lot more firewood!
