I have been a E* customer for a couple of years now. I tried to switch over to D* recently for more HD contents but I had to cancel it at the end. I thought it would be an easy switch because I already have HD DVR from E* infrastructure that uses a splitter for the two tuners in the ViP-622. But as it turned out, D*'s H20 requires an extra cable to the dish. A splitter won't work for D*. So, I told the installer thank you very much I am staying with E* until they get their technology to the same level as E*'s.
