As far as loss of signal with the satellite, It seems to be much worse during the summer months, it's been raining and storming like crazy here for the last few days and I haven't noticed any problems with the satellite. This summer I had a lot of problems, I've got to think it's related, it seems like during the winter months I hardly ever have problems, but when late spring and summer hit, I have a lot more outages.

I checked out the insight web page. It looks pretty good to me. The on-demand and free previews of other channles looks pretty cool. It looks way better than most of the digital cable set-ups I have seen throughout Arizona and California.

I mean, you have a tough choice, and the most significant difference is the sports. The "midwest" doesn't really give me any clear idea what RSNs you might get or whether those will be in HD, plus some areas close to major sports towns will have more HD sports on locals.

Plus the D* sports pack will give you a bit more college football, CFL, college sports, and sports related shows.

I hope D* works out a deal for WWE 24/7, and at $9 a month like insight, I am down with that.

At least you have some good choices. And if reception is bad, then go with cable. My brother has Dish in Chicago and says it goes out a lot during rain and snow, so i don't doubt it happens, it just shouldn't. I'm on the rainy Monterey Pen, and no issues...yet;)

I have to wonder if that has to do with the humidity. During the dog days of summer our signal strength drops a bit (e.g. a channel that comes in in the mid 90's most of the year will come in in the high 80's in august). Then again, we probably have something like 200% humidity in the air :) Still, it takes alot for us to lose our picture.
