    Well, discounts were out with Directv and I have been missing the Hopper greatly. So as of tomorrow at this time, I will be back with Dish and back with a Hopper 3. Very interested to see what that picture quality is going to look like...

    I'm thinking of making the switch also; what is the picture quality compared to DirecTv (which is not too impressive)? And I might add "WHO DAT"!!!

    You'll tell us - PQ is different for different eyes, not telling about providers

    I think all the talk on PQ is mostly just that - talk. It would take some pretty extreme circumstances to tell between HD channels / sources / displays.

    may be not that "extreme circumstances" … some people do really like the little bit softness of dish's 1440x1080 video output after H.264/H.265 compression of original 1920x1080 video source

    Who Dat?! I've got a Panasonic Plasma and I have compared my picture to relatives who all have Directv and I just don't see any difference. Now granted, none of this has been side by side. I've had people who are Diectv subscribers at my house and compliment me on my picture. I think PQ is just very subjective. Now, when I had the HWS I think there was quite a difference between the 2, but the Hopper 3, I see no difference at all.
