I am getting my D* HR20 installed next Friday. If anything should go wrong with this installation I am going to be switching to DISH. Is there anyone out there that used to be on D* that thinks this is a bad idea? I know that E* has way more HD programming and that is why I am considering this move. But I also know that since I have been with D* since 2000 they have been nothing but good to me.

Opinions?

Well once I get the HR20 installed I am stuck with it for 2 years unless I want to pay the cancellation fee.

I guess my greatest concern right now is whether or not this will actually be installed. Out of stock issues are abound.

If the HR20 gives you lots of trouble, then that may be worth switching for, but in general I'd go with the provider that has the programming you want.

This will be my first experience with any HDTV through Satelite. I have no indication that they are out of stock but others have rported that they were not told until the day of the installation and then they were put off again. E* told me they could install next day so that is the deciding factor. I like the idea that E* has more HD programming but not sure if it is enough to make me switch to a new network.

:confused:

Ah, I was under the impression that you were going to make the decision post-installation. I'm not sure what to tell you. If you really want an HD-DVR right now and aren't willing to wait for it to get back in stock, then I guess switching is your only option in that case. But if you've been happy with D* and are happy with their HD offerings, I'm not sure why else you'd want to switch.

If the decision is going to be based on the capabilities of the units, then the review that sleeplessInSunnyvale linked should give you plenty of information.

The more I am hearing from you guys the more I am thinking I should not get myself stuck into anbother two years with D* I still have a week till the install. I may call retention tonight and tell them of my concern. Of course it does not change the fact that they do not have as much HD content. What to do what to do? My other big problem with E* is that the dish will have to be on the front of the house and I have to see what the wife thinks of that.
