Well, let's see what happens the first time one of your DISH DVR's reformats & dumps your entire hardrive of shows - there's a dealer over on Claude's board this morning crying in his beer about loosing 100 hrs worth of shows on a 622... :D :rolleyes:
Suffice it to say that it has indeed happened. DTiVo users who want HD content are in a horrible bind. DTiVo SD users should be fine for another 2.5 years.

  • If you want DTiVo, you can't have much HD and much of what you can receive today will be reduced in a matter of months.
  • If you want the most HD, you need to be with Dish Network.
  • If you can't get DTiVo, you're stuck with some pretty shakey DVR options in the R15 and HR20 over in DirecTV land.
  • DirecTV has a two year commitment versus the 1.5 year commit at Dish Network.
  • DirecTV has fewer SD local markets but more HD local markets (although many are less than the promised four networks).

What is best for a particular subscriber is up to the subscriber. One must establish a list of priorities and go from there. Dismissing one or the other provider out of hand because of a rare or inconsequential issue is no way to make a decision.
