I just wish we had Telemundo HD, G4TV HD and Howard TV.
u keep telling that to yourself
I am about 6 weeks into my new Dish contract after spending several years with DirecTV.
So far, the Hopper/Joey system has been 99.9% flawless, as compared to my DirecTV setup, which was 60% annoying and maddening.
Let me put it this way. If DirecTV offered free everything for year, if I went back to the HR20-700, I would flatly turn them down. Life's too short to deal with crappy equipment.
How many times are you going to repeat this mantra?
Sorry it didn't work out for you, but my similar unit has been O.K.
As many times as I see fit.
There's no limit on expressing one's satisfaction with switching providers, just like there's no limit on how many times fanboys can jump me for doing so.
Ever think of changing your user name to "Same Old Song"? :sure:
Sorry, but Dish is never going to be better then Directv.
I've had both, and cable , Cable is better then dish.
A Provider that gave up on Sports in the Greater NY DMA is never going to be a threat to anyone. Anyone who had dish in the past knows they Drop channels just as fast as they add them.
The fact that they are at 14 Million customers AGAIN doesn"t show much growth in the past 3 years. Thats with their Blockbuster non sence and poor excuse for a whole home DVR.
Equipment Fees that are through the roof.
I can't even find a setup with Dish that wouldn't cost me $40 in fees per month to suit my needs that Direct tv can provide for Half that.
Every time you troll one of my posts an angel gets his wings. :lol:
Nice try, troll.
You do realize you are one of them? Just for a different provider? I saw all kinds of issues with the Hopper/Joey, so for many its not 99.9% flawless. And for me, my HMC and HR22 have been 99.9% flawless, despite others having issues. So I guess we are both lucky.
It's nice to watch a recording and skip all the ads without touching the remote - just implemented on the Hopper for prime time network shows.
...if you watch the recording within 24 hours. Big deal.... Pressing a button a few times isn't that big of a deal.
"Breaking Bad" Season 5 starts on AMC in July. By all accounts AMC will be gone from the DISH channel lineup by that time. One more reason they can't be my provider for the foreseeable future.
Let's see. A one-hour show with four commercial breaks of two minutes each. That's 16 presses to skip or four presses of slip while watching the commercials during fast-forward.
Automatic commercial skip, if it really works, is indeed a big deal.
It is but it is extremely limited both in terms of what shows it does and the timeframe that it does it in. Nice if you already have the system but not a feature worth buying in for.
Our society has become THAT lazy where not pressing a button on a remote to FFW is a big deal? You also must watch the show within the first 24 hours of recording...which is ok if you watch stuff quickly. I currently have around 35 series links & only about 3 I watch within a day.
BTW, your numbers are incorrect. A 1 hr show is almost always about 42 minutes of show and 18 for commercials.
I still remember the day when we had to RW and FF video and audio tapes.
Just wait until the day when we have to pay an extra fee to FF through commercials.
Completely false. The auto-hop feature is available after 1 AM each night and remains available for the entire eight days the program stays in the PTAT list. Auto-hop also remains with the program if you transfer it to your list and stays active until you delete the program.
It is a big deal.
I'm wrong and misinterpreted the feature. Disregard my previous criticism, except about people being that lazy.
