After 13 years with Dish it may be time to switch

I subscribe to E* - have for years - and have grown accustomed to their "style": slow HD releases, even slower software releases, incompatible EHD problems, new features and equipment bereft of flaws. Similarly, I enjoy a top-notch DVR, external storage, and a slew of HD.
That said, I at least know the beast I'm living with; which I couldn't say if I suddenly switched to a competing service. But, to the brave go the spoils of discovery. If you're that concerned about it and don't have to squint at the price, then go for it.
Otherwise, stay put ... it'll all even out in a few years anyway.

And for me the best decision is to have both until something happens to swing me one way or another.
I watch everything on E* except Speed (and FOX News until recently) which I watch on D*
I have a 622 with an external drive and a HR21 with the piggy back tuner.
Any recording conflicts get picked up on the HR21.
No PIP on the HR21. That pulls vacuum.
I'm spending around 200 bucks a month and have no premiums (HBO etc). But for now that's the only solution for me.
My locals have been on E* for 5 years and will be HD in March.
D* doesn't even have my SD locals on the radar.
