Hmm. I can't speak to your programming tastes or personal budget, but as to your comments about the DVRs, I can. Mine all reliably record programming, reliably play it back, offer reasonable recording capacity, and offer a few other goodies like media playback and video on demand via my 'net connection.
Maybe if you, you know, actually used the services and products you prognosticate about you might be in a better position to offer advice and reliable information.
Somebody harshed harsh......priceless
I actually paid less for that as I was in the Home Theater Business at the time and got it for cost but still alot of money but I had made alot in the stock market that year so I rewarded myself. :lol:
Almost. Harsh rarely "prognosticates", and he does crack me up occasionally. Funny is funny no matter what provider he uses.
Even at half price, that's a lot more than I could get away with. If I came home with a $7,000 TV, my wife would be off the the jewelers and would buy that same amount in jewelry. We don't worry about "keeping up with the neighbors", we worry about keeping up with each other (and she's way ahead, naturally). We had our twentieth anniversary a couple years ago and I just caught her before she bought a $20,000 ring to replace her original wedding ring. And that ring didn't even have a 60" screen! :lol:
I can say that the HD DVR that I'm currently provided with records 100% reliably, has a seemingly endless capacity afforded by swapping USB drives in and out (without rebooting or maintaining preferences) and can record three channels at once. It serves up two TVs independently (one HD, one SD) without an external modulator or media converters, has done PIP and side-by-side and it seems pretty happy with my TVs. A heads up: Brand E has Internet-based VOD as well.
If something does go wrong with the HD DVR that I currently have, I get to keep all of the recordings that I can salvage from it as well as all of the recordings that have been put on the USB drives and play them on the replacement unit. This is important to me as I have the entire ST:Enterprise series (in HD) on one EHD and the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Summer Olympics (in HD) on another.
My recollection is that the elusive HR23 can only do one or two of these cool features.
There is a thread in the General Satellite forum that compares features between DIRECTV and EchoStar products, so perhaps that is a better place for bringing out the rulers and measuring one's ... worth.
I think DBSTalk has a Dish DVR forum. Why are you hanging out here trolling if you're 100% happy with Dish??
Does the Dish section have Directv subs troll there and post about how NFLST & MLB-EI in HD is great? Or how streaming to your PC is amazing? Or how network capabilities are far superior?
Who knows, most of us D* users don't bother to troll in the Dish forums.
Good question. I would love to hear an honest answer.
Maybe those hotswappable [strike]eSATA[/strike] USB drives aren't holding enough of the right kind of programming to keep him entertained?
I believe it is time to close down this thread as the posts no longer have any relevance to it's original intent. Therefore, as the thread starter I am requesting the forum moderators to do so.
I've never even gone to the Dish forums. What would be the point? They could have the best DVRs and the best of this and that and without the Yes Network and the Yankees I would have no interest at all.
Cablevision called me the other day and offered to pay $200 towards my cancellation fee if I switched to them. The guy I talked to asked me just what they would have to do to get my account. My reply was "Get rid of Dolan". He's the clown that caused me to switch to D* back in '02 when he decided not to carry the Yes Network. If he did it once...
I gather you got the 23? I was wondering when someone would shut this thread down. It really got off topic. Send me a PM, tell me what you think of the 23, if you've had enough time to form an opinion.
