I was in your situation. I had E but the trees grew in the way. I switched to D and I must say their programming and picture quality is better than E. Having said that, I do not like their DVR, the HR21. It does not have the functionality of E's VIP 722. People say that I will get used to it but I've had it for 2 months and still miss my 722. There are rumors of DLB and something better than DLB coming to D but who knows!
