I am currently a Frontier FiOS TV customer, but my experience with them yesterday has me resolved to change. DirecTV's channel lineup and pricing looks acceptable, but I am having a terrible time trying to figure out what sort of equipment I need for my 6 TVs (likely to increase to as many as 9 or 10 over the next few years). DirecTV's web site wants to less me a Genie + 5 minis, but I've read in many places that only 3 minis can be active at once. My mother lives with us, and she never turns off her TV, so this would only leave 2 tuners available for the other 4 minis. I could presumably use HD receivers, instead of minis, in a couple of rooms, but these rooms would then be cut off from the DVR content on the Genie. I would also have to figure out the pricing, acquisition, and activation of the receivers, since they're apparently not offered on the DirecTV web site. I saw one suggestion to use multiple HD DVRs for this sort of setup, but that would just give me multiple "islands" of content. (And it's not even clear if that's still an option, since they don't seem to be available anymore.) All in all, this is an incredibly frustrating experience (and why I've avoided DirecTV until now). Anyone have any suggestions?
