I just switched from TWC to DTV this week, and couldn't be happier. Here in central NC, the following issues were HOURLY on TWC:
-Slow channel changes (to the point where the box would freeze)
-Pixelation that is not unlike a poorly pointed antenna receiving a signal from too far away.
-HD channels suddenly not working.
-Audio problems on certain channels.
I love having the NFL Network, HDNet, and the ability to integrate OTA channels into the guide. MASN is an RSN here, but TWC didn't carry it. I hate all of those stupid on demand channels wasting bandwidth and randomly dispersed into the lineup, causing freezing and the picture to disappear until I re-booted the box. Informing them of the problem did nothing as they would only give me a new box that was the same piece of junk that I brought them. I think the HD quality is a bit better on DTV, but I need to see them side by side.
I will say, however, that I do miss Nat Geo Wild in HD, since it is one of the few basic channels that isn't reality shows and crap, even though TWC just added it like 2 weeks ago and I only had it a short time. The HD selection was impressive for the channels they carry and the internet (which I still have) is usually flawless. If you're not a sports fan, I would say TWC is okay. Personally, I will NEVER go back.
