I was talking with an installer/distributor. I had turned him onto this board and he said he was amazed at the number of people who complained about the reliability of their DirecTV equipment. His business installs both Dish Network and DirecTV and he has found the DirecTV systems to be more reliable. "It seems we install the DirecTV systems and they just work. If it was Dish, I could understand. We have more problems with their equipment. Now, we install more Dish so that may make a difference." So let's have a poll about reliability. The trick is asking the right question. The question is about your system as it currently is, not how it worked 4 years ago. I'm also trying to put its reliability in context with other electronics. So here's the question: Compared to other consumer electronics that you have owned, how does your current DirecTV system rate in reliability?
