I too wish DirecTV had G4. I actually really liked watching ninja warrior and campus pd. I can't believe its been so long since they removed it and haven't heard anything about it coming back.

G4 is dead nice job there comcarp.

Now directv should only pickup the re band if they can get the missing CSN channels with it.
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

I just got a HR34 & 2 HR24s with Whole home, it is awesome.

Terrific. That's the system (more or less) that I'm going to have in a couple of weeks.
HR34 Living Room
HR24-500 Office
HR24-500 Bedroom
Whole Home DVR enabled :)

I just got Directv with the Genie (HR-34 and 2 C31s) last week, after 3 years with DISH. Picture quality overall average is definitely better with Directv. Also, my household's more frequently-watched networks are AMC, TCM, MSNBC, FX, HBO, HGTV, FOX and NBC.

The recent AMC mess, as well as both MSNBC and TCM not being offered in lower-tiered plans at DISH made the decision easier for me. Why is FOX News included in all plans at DISH, but you have to pay extra for MSNBC? Teabag much, Mr. DISH CEO? Both FOX News and MSNBC are offered in lower-tiered plans at Directv.

Who cares about SD??? Seriously!

What is SD???

I only watch HD because I bought expensive HD TVs so I could watch the Best PQ with HD!!!

Can't stand it when I walk into a Bar or wherever and they still have SD, Unbelievable!!!

All of my HR24s (4 of them) work Fantastically and they are Fast and Responsive and the PQ is AWESOME so I wouldn't even think of Dish as I Love Sports!!!
Here's My Setup

I sell and install Dish and DTV. I switched from Dish to DTV in my home a couple of years ago so I could be of more help to my DTV customers. My family was mad at me until I switched back. I had always told people that the only reason to go with DTV was if you had to have the Sunday Ticket. Although I prefer Dish, I must admit it is primarily because it is what I am most experienced with and understand and I believe that is the reason for most people's preferences. Unless you have experienced both for a considerable length of time, I think it is hard to make an unbiased and objective comparison. The main reason I prefer Dish most consumers could care less about. Dish has always treated retailers and installers better. Without going into a lot of detail, DTV has cheated me out of a lot of money in the past. My recomendation to new customers is to go with a local retailer with a good reputation. Choosing a good retailer is much more important than deciding between Dish and DTV in the long run.
