I'm dumping Cablevision because they raised my bill again, and I'm sick of them. Thinking of switching to D* and have been snooping around here for info. But I have a few questions. I live in a Hoboken NJ condo and control the roof. That means I have a great view of the south and of the mast on the Empire State Building most broadcasters use. I have no interest in HD; I have no interest sports. I alread own 2 standalone tivos; I will be hooking up 2 rooms. Questions: --What questions should I be asking to get the best deal? --From whom should I buy service? DirectTV, Verizon, an indie dealer or a chain like Best Buy? I need DSL service, too, so I'll be buying SOMETHING through them anyway. --Should I save $5 and not get the local brodacast tier? If I do that, will the broadcast channels map in the receiver normally? --What kind off dish should I demand? --I LOVE my Tivos. On has a lifetime subscription; the other is a monthly, $6/plan. My inclination is to keep them, but am I missing out on anything if I don't go to D*'s DVRs? Any advice on any of these issues is welcome. Thanks!
