Dish, Directv, they both have pros and cons. Whatever makes a person happy with their satellite provider. I prefer Directv, but for some that's not their choice. I'd consider Dish, if they added MeTV, AntennaTV and RTV. Of course I need AMC too!

We have none in our DMA but sometimes can receive MeTV, when the tropo is right. Also have seen AntennaTV via good Tropo, from Buffalo, but that's over 160 miles away! At least Rochester is about 100 miles over open water.

That's why I went with DISH's VIP922/wMT2.It has 2 satellite tuners and 2 OTA tuners.It also has DISH's new HDDVR format(channel logo guide and Menu Tiles).But it's not a whole home system which I don't need so I went with a VIP211k in each of my 3 bedrooms.:)


I did not know that option was available. Now all I need is to wait for ESPNU in HD.
