For years, I've been using an Xbox360 connected to Media Center 2005 as my DVR (actually two Xbox's, one in the living room one in the bedroom). Overall I liked it to a degree, but it was very unrealiable. Rently my dual tuner card quit on me so I'm thining of scrapping the Media Center setup. Right now I just have analog cable, but have been seriously thinking of getting Dish Network. I believe I can get the single 722 DVR and have it work in two different locations? Is this correct? How good is that setup? Does DirectTV have something similar? Also how good is the 722 DVR? Also say compared to Media Center? Can I had an external drive? With my Media Center I had a terrabyte of drive space. Can I select what quality to record in? How is the programming guide? Last but not least, is it user friendly?
