I see a lot of complaints about every provider. Sometimes the devil you know is better than the devil you switch to... I've been with DirecTv off and on for many years, and am currently out of contract. They saddled me with an awful HD DVR, the HR22, which has been slow and unresponsive since day one. It has never missed a recording, but I'm tired of it not changing channels quickly when I turn it on for the kids and whatever is showing is totally wrong for their eyes (A Baby Story on TLC is the usual culprit.). 20 seconds later, I still can't change the channel or get their program started. To add insult to injury, they lack BBC America and TheHub in HD. I have the AM21 for HD Locals (not in HD currently on DirecTV, but are on Dish) and like that they work even when rain fade hits. I have a single set. Two tuners at once us usually sufficient. I see the Hopper, and I think I'd like to switch to it, but worry about the lack of OTA support, and the complaints about it. So... Is anyone actually a happy Dish customer, or am I risking saddling myself to another company that fails to provide basic functionality? Thanks for your replies.
