    I've recorded HD movies off a free preview and been able to watch them any time I want even well past the preview time. Maybe cable does it like that, but apparently DirecTV and Dish don't.

    Doesn't appear to be anything that E* has that D* doesn't that I would want. Contrarily, D* has lots of channels that E* does not have that I actually watch. D* is the HD leader as far as I am concerned. Our local Comcrap (C*) has even fewer than that is listed above for Comcrap.

    DRM when working properly will prevent dubbing. But you can keep them on your receiver's hard drive or external hard drive for as long as the media works!

    i have a chart that i made and its an xml document which i cant post here and cant convert it to xls or whatever is legal here. Can i e-mail it to someone and they may be able to convert it or post it and i want to see if its up to date or not. It only compares Dish with DTV HD.

    very hard to compare who has what and missing what. I like side by side alphebetical order. Seems to be missing some channels. Does Dish have Show Too and Starz comedy and TMC east? I have them in my list but missing on that list and Does Dish have West feeds of cinimax, hbo starz and showtime like it shows on the dtv list? That list also forgets to number the NBA channel as number.

    E* has what is on the E* side of the list, D* has what is on their side of the list.
    I've got to add the NBA TV channel ... the most recent addition. I've been busy!

    FYI: Dish does not have Show Too, Starz Comedy or TMC in HD.

    What about Dish having the west feeds of hbo, cinimax and showtime and starz?

    you have NBA for Dish on there but no number beside it. Just to let you know. Should be 38.

    I'll post the update on NBA TV shortly ... adding it to both lists. As for the rest of your questions, my list is correct. There is no need to ask about each individual channel. If west feeds are not listed on the E* side they are not on the system.

    Ok Thanks, I will count on that list being accurate then. I have seen other list with different channels but I will bank on this one being most accurate.

    Mike
