Well see thats what I'm thinking, I don't expect to be blown away by the PQ per say, who knows maybe I will be able to tell a big difference as some have quoted to say they could. But other things such as the hardware, menus, DVR experience, other things that not a lot of people have mentioned, such as PiP...which surprises me...I've watched a few YouTube videos out there on the HR34 and saw the menu and the PIP and was wow, that would be awesome to have, little things like that. Just the menu guide itself, it doesn't cover what is on TV live, like UVerse does. The small things sometimes are bigger and help the experience a lot more than you'd think.
So while I am big about the PQ and that was my main reason for starting this trek, I've been learning and seeing things along the way that have made me excited to have DirecTV in here. Sure seeing it in person would be great, but if that can't happen, I'm trying to find more and more reason to get over my fear of switching, and just trust in those who love their DirecTV experience and consider it the best option out there.
REMEMBER this is the internet, and what ever we type "must be true"
I don't watch a lot of sports [without a spark plug], but believe those that say fast moving sports have problems with U-who and not with DirecTV.
Have you seen what has been posted?
If so, it won't be there with DirecTV.
I didn't like the jumping movement [dropping of frames].
Menus and the other "hands on" things, well we all have our likes & dislikes, so what "sucks for me", might not make a ripple for you, and the inverse where it totally sucks for you and it isn't something I even use.
[maybe a key here is I have more options with DirecTV than U-who]
