This is goodby to you. I have made the switch from DirecTV for the past 15 years, to local cable (Time Warner) with the new Tivo premiere XL. I have to tell you that I love it. TWC has come a long way, and so far, the service is quite good. The HD is excellent. They even have a live chat section on their website, which I have used, and have had a positive experience. I had Tivo when it first came out, and it's never been better. Time warner carries ALL of the major channels in HD. All of which DTV does not. My guess is that it will be years before they decide to get around to it. I know there are a lot of die hard DTV fans out there, and so was I. But I am tired of paying sky high monthly fees to DTV, and not having the luxury of all major channels in HD. This is 2011! Look how long it took for AMC to arrive. They are acting like they are doing us a favor. Look how much chatter it has caused even on this website! And that's just for one channel. Gimme a break! I have had it with them. TWC carries BBC America, AMC, QVC, Nat Geo Wild, TV Land, Bloomberg, and Turner Classic, and HLN, all in HD. Tivo is also very nice. I have had it about two weeks, and they add new cool features often. Even if and when DTV offers Tivo, they will still not add any new HD channels. Even Tivo's their program scheduling online is great. Very fast. You can even view your season pass, and make changes. Anyway, it was great being a part of this forum, and I wish you all good luck. Who knows, maybe if DTV ever gets their act together I will come back.
