I am in the process of a move, and when I get in the new house I am looking to drop cable for satellite (not sure what I'm going to do about internet yet, that is for another thread). I have been interested in the Hopper, but the Genie looks pretty good too. I wanted to ask about your experiences with either of the devices and if anyone has been in the same boat, what did you choose and why?
Some issues I would like to clarify:
- It looks like both will "drive" up to 3 clients, but I've heard that Dish only feeds the 3rd client with material from the DVR and not live TV, while Direct supports 4 different live feeds.
- Dish Anywhere with Sling vs DirecTV Everywhere (How do they compare? Is live TV supported on iOS/Android? Can I feed more than one device at a time?
- Picture Quality; any difference?
- Dish charges $7/month for each client, while Direct charges $6
- anything else?
