I had Direct TV from 1999 till March of 2010. We moved from a 3 bedroom house to a 3 bedroom apt. I decided not to fork out the extra $250.00 deposit(for any damges to the building) to have Direct TV installed at the time of the move. I added up all my bills, Direct TV, Phone(AT&T), DSL(At&t 1.2 down) and with going to U-verse I saved about $50.00 a month. PQ - looks about the same(HD) my son has 42" Samsung and he would complain. Would I go back to Direct TV ..... maybe or maybe not. More HD channels(full time) then Direct TV. 3rd provider at my location Dish - haven't tried it. 4th provider Charter cable and HD is bad, few HD channels and priced to high.

You can get an HR24 for less than 199 at costco, overstock, and several other places.
Id really go that route, but hey, you can suspend your directv account and try Uverse, but I dont think you will be happy with it.

HR24s are at Costco????? Since when?
