    I have Dish with one HD TV. Looking to replace the older TVs soon and have 3 HD TVs. The one in the living room will be the only one receiving HD programming from Dish. It's not worth paying the lease fees to get HD on the smaller sets. I will get HD OTA on those and get standard definition Dish programming.

    I have a 722K (w/ an attic OTA antenna) running:
    1 HDTV (HD)
    1 HDTV (in SD)
    2 SDTV (off of TV2)
    1 HDTV is currently not hooked up, but we plan on putting it in our Laundry room with component cables going to the 722K

    Dish, ViP722 and ViP612 in order to record 4 shows at a time during prime time, one HDTV in "home theater", but....

    We have a Slingbox PRO-HD fed by the 722 which we use to watch programming in other areas of the house. For instance we use a computer with a 25" HD monitor in our office, a 20" notebook computer, plus an iPad or 15" laptop in the kitchen or when sitting outside on a deck.

    Technically, I have 4.... But only because I upgraded to a 46" in the bedroom and it's mounted above the 23" that I didn't pull down yet. Once the 23" comes down, I'll be back to 3 HD TVs in the house. :)

    And... I'm a DirecTV customer, though I'm contemplating a switch to DISH for the Hopper/Joey setup as that would be more than enough system for me and would save money in both the short and long term...

    No HDTV sets at "home", just a couple of HDTV tuners feeding good CRT analog monitors.

    At "Broadcast House" (my home-away-from-home), ....about 200+ HDTV sets.

    I had two HDTVs when I responded to the poll. Now I have three. Last week the pawn shop down the street marked down a 40" 1080 with a sound bar from $300 to $175. The sign said the sound didn't work. That didn't matter to me so we checked the picture and I snatched it up. Got it home and did a factory reset and installed the latest firmware and the sound works perfectly. And the picture is beautiful. I have a 211k on the way to replace a 311 so I'll have HD on it.

    Why did we close this poll if it is still less than a month old?

    A DirecTV sub here.

    Counting my computer monitor, I have 3. If you want to include my Vaio, I have 4. I do watch TV on both. Counting TVs only, I have 2.

    I would include my iPad and my iPhone since I watch TV on those as well, but neither is HD.

    Why was the poll closed? I just saw it today for the first time and I'm already too late!

    OP sets the poll expiration date.

    If you missed it, you need to broaden your outlook, e.g., read more threads.

    I limited the poll because it was information I was interested in on a small sample... not a larger sample over time. I didn't (as a moderator) close the thread because I figure if people still want to post, that is fine... but the sample size for the poll was large enough over that initial limit for my curiosity to be sated.

    Dish with Top 200, and 4 (total) HDTVs: 60" Panny plasma, 51" Sammy plasma, 37" Sony Bravia LCD Rear projo. The Panny has the Hopper, and the Sammy and Sony projo have Joeys. I have a Sony 40" LCD that I'm not sure what to do with. It might end up in the garage. :D
