I'm a current DTV subscriber with a contract running out soon. I've been reading these boards trying gauge the feeling of Dish subscribers. Some people are really down on the Hopper, which is my main interest in switching, plus the savings over the next 12 months. Does this thing work like it's supposed to or does it need some more software updates? I've read that DTV's new HMC is quite buggy and almost impossible to get. I can get the Hopper just by subscribing according to the woman I talked to at Dish last week, they have plenty. Thanks in advance for the info.
