Hi all - I've had Cablevision's iO for years. I've had their techs to my house probably 50 times over the last couple of years to try to fix low signal problems. Most of the time they show up and replace connectors or splitters in the house. Once they ran a new cable from the street to the house, before that they ran a new cable from the box across the street to my side. That fixes the problem for a couple of weeks but then slowly but surely the low signal problem resurfaces and my DVRs start having problems. Sometimes the guides won't come up, sometimes they won't record, etc, etc. They keep promising they can fix it but I'm tired of waiting. So now I'm looking at DirecTV. I've compared the programming available and pretty much everything that I would want to watch is offered by DirecTV so I'm happy with that. But I've got some questions, hopefully somebody who knows can answer. 1. How is the speed of the receiver's menus compared to iO? I had Dish Network years ago a the menus were super slow. 2. The "regular" channels (2, 4, 5, 7, etc) on iO are all HD now. On DirecTV is it the same or are there special HD channels that I would need to use? 3. I've going to get the "whole house" DVR package. Is that decent? 4. If I want the pausing of live TV functionality I would need a DVR on the TV I'd want to use that on, correct? Even with the "whole house" DVR? 5. One of the (only) cool things about iO is the PIP functionality. Can the DirecTV receivers do that? 6. Do any of the receivers need to be connected to a phone line or Internet? If Internet, can they do WiFi or is it hardwired only? 7. Is there anything I should look out for? Am I going to miss anything that iO offers that DirecTV doesn't? Thanks for the help.
