I got the following questions recently: I am considering switching but there is one comparison I don't really understand. With DISH we share a DVR box. That allows me to record on both of my TV's and watch recordings from either tv on either one. But with Direct the boxes are separate. Does that mean I can only view what was recorded on that specific TV? That seems like a disadvantage. Can you give me your opinion about which is preferable? I found this page that show's DIRECTV's MRV that is in beta. Is anyone one using this that can tell me about it. I assume the advantage is that you can get access to all your DVR shows in more than two rooms, and I assume that each room is HD, whereas with Dish you only get one HD tuner and on SD tuner. The disadvantage seems to be that you would need some kind of home networking setup, right? Anything else I may be missing?
