As I've mentioned before, I've been trying to decide between D* and FIOS for my upcoming HD venture. 3 months ago I was set on FIOS, mainly based on the early reports of the D* DVR. I rekindled my relationship with this forum a couple of months ago and was pleasantly surprised with everything I read. Couple that with all of the complaints from FIOS owners in their threads at AVS (which get worse with every software upgrade) and I finally decided to stick with DirecTV. Read for a bit in the Deals Thread and finally decided to call tonight. I think I got a pretty darn good deal. You can read about it HERE Looks like I'm on board for the next couple of years and I'm really looking forward to trying out HD on the 126" screen in my theater. PS. Thanks to Milominderbender2 for putting the thought in my head.
