I currently have an 811 receiver, I pay 60 dollars a month for America's 120 and the hd channels. I was looking into getting the vip 622 so that I would have a couple extra hd channels and the dvr capability. And I don't mind paying to get the new receiver, or even paying to lease the new receiver. However, after talking with the customer service rep it sounds like my bill would jump up to 80 dollars or higher with comparable programming (Hd silver package). That's a lot of cash every month for tv channels. I don't watch that much tv. I like MSnbc (Keith Olbermann), Comedy Central, and the HD channels. I'd love to hear people's comments on this. Is it worth the extra 20 dollars a month? I really want the dvr capability, but maybe there's a better way to record programs that I don't know about. Or maybe the extra channels and picture quality is worth every penny. Whatever your opinion, I'd love to hear it. Thanks!
