I have now had the chance to experience both Directv and DISH. I switched to DISH due to all of the HD DVR glitches/issues that I had hoping, and maybe some wishful thinking on my part, that DISH would be better and unfortunately I was wrong. Considering that DISH is only $5 cheaper for me per month, than it all came down to Features on my DVR. Granted DISH has some cool features like PIP and dual live tuner buffers, but by far Directv outways them in features and ease of use. It is so much easier to set defaults and recordings, etc. with Directv that I feel that they are the lesser of the 2 evils. Plus they also offer much more HDTV. The picture quality was worse and I had multiple spontaneous reboots with DISH. Plus there is too many extra things you have to do to either record a show or go back to Live TV, etc. and therefore much more of a hassel than Directv. Since both companies have issues with their dvr's and their pricing is about the same than for me it came down to features which I feel that Directv faired better and therfore it looks like we will be switching back to Directv. I guess that you don't know what you got until you don't got it no more!! Sometimes though you have to experience things for yourself, no matter what someone tells you and then you can make an informed decision. So for those of you who have been with both companies, what is your opinion on both of them? Who do you like more and why? Feel free to agree or disagree with me as I value all opinions and thank you for reading my post!!
