Other than the fact of HD streams slowing down my Internet speed, Uverse has been fine. The PQ is not as great as DirecTV, but it is still pretty good. The guide/DVR software responds well. I have only had 2 short "hiccups" with the picture freezing. The slowing down of my Internet due to watching HD/recording HD with Uverse is bothering me though. I'm trying to decide if I should cancel Uverse while I'm still in a 30-day trial, or just leave it active & get Dish installed also so I can compare. my cocnerns with Dish: 1) Does Dish have better PQ than Uverse? I've heard many people on this site say Direct is better, but I would hope Dish has better PQ than Uverse. 2) If I'm not satisfied while the tech is there can I "back out"? The rep I spoke with over the phone at Dish said I can as long as I "back out" before I sign the contract. 3) I've read many posts on this site saying that Dish goes out more than Direct during rain 4) Is the software sluggish (guide, DVR, etc)? 5) problems with receivers? freezes in live programming or anything? 6) thinking of Hopper and Super Joey--so with PTA ON, I will get 4 tuners (1 of which for PT), and Super Joey gives 2 extra (basically 5)? 7) Does the Sling really work anywhere with wifi? Does it work well? Any input is appreciated!!
