    Just recently moved and the complex provides free time warner internet/tv. The internet is alright, but the television leaves a lot to be desired.

    Interested in gettin the XTra packagem 2 HDTV's. With Directv switching to all HD or w/e towards the end of the month is it better to wait 2 weeks? Or is there no difference...

    Are you saying directv is all HD now and Dish all HD at end of month? This is news to me, maybe someone could expound on it.

    Directv is switching to only installing HD equipment - currently they will install a SD dish and SD receivers for customers who don't want HD.

    For you it shouldn't make any difference since you have HDTVs and will want a HD install.

    As the others have said, for you is "business as usual" the change is for those customers who is ordering SD programming

    In a couple of weeks DirecTV will stop installing SD equipment for new customers. There is a spirited discussion underway in another thread as to whether or not that means everyone gets HD programming whether they want it or not. But DirecTV is not "all HD" now and whatever DirecTV is doing, it won't change DISH's offerings this month. (DISH is already pushing for all HD installs for new customers but are not requiring all HD installs at this time.)
