    I have made the decision to subscribe to Direct TV and not transfer comcast to the house I am moving into to. I am getting an HR10-250, what am I getting into that I might not know?

    Any issues?

    Should I wait to buy certain equipment?

    Basically I need all my newbie questions answered, but can anyone help with the above or redirect me to any other sites?

    You will never for a second regret your decision to move up to DirecTV from cable.

    Somebody up there loves you.

    Take an hour or so and read through the various threads on the DirecTV forums here. You will find much information.

    Once you have done that, it may be easier to come back with any specific questions you have than for us to guess at what we should tell you. Post in the appropriate forum section (general, hi-def, etc.) that is most appropriate for your question.

    Welcome aboard.

    Have you already bought your stuff or have you just made the decision? After Wednesday you cannot own DTV equipment. Lease only.

    Well, never say never, but you'll have to pay a butt load more to own it.

    How many rooms? HD/SD? DVR? How many of each.

    I am just going for simple and basic right now. I don't have a lot of cash to spend monthly. Ideally I would have two DVRs and two basic receivers, but due to cash restrictions and no phone line (can't afford one) I will very happily settle for a 3-room basic setup on the Total Choice Plus package. That will take care of the living room, bedroom, and my little girls's room when she is here. No locals here either in Marquette, MI market #190. I will get the Triple LNB dish though by request just to keep a few options open in the future.

    Just a simple and basic setup, but a lot better than having only small town CBS, NBC, ABC, and PBS since May of 2005. I look forward to having more channels that I can keep track of.

    Anybody know how I can get my hands on a WB and UPN in these desolate parts where OTA and cable have none? Gotta see my "Charmed" girls. ;) :grin:
