Good morning,

Just wanted to say hi! to all. Referred here from TiVo forums.
Current set up at home is fairly standard, Hughes SD DVR40 and
assorted pieces of usual consumer electronics, (Toshiba 32" TV,
Sony AV control center, Yahama speakers,etc). Standing at the water's edge
waiting to jump into HD, deciding whether to stick with D*TV (though Dish has
been hounding me). Currently using Adelphia for internet only, waiting to see what's in store with the coming Comcast takeover whether to switch over/back
to CATV. I've been trying to keep up with all the electronic goodness that's out
there. Ready to listen to your suggestions.

Welcome to the forums.

I guess there are two general areas of interest in response to your situation. The first specifically deals with cable and what you can expect from it's implementation in your area. Perhaps others near you can comment. As to Comcast (often referred to as Comcrap), well I have them and I'm not impressed. Seems to vary widely depending on location, installed infrastructure (which probably won't change when Adelphia is taken over), etc.

The second broad area of your inquiry deals with the quality of DirecTV, DirecTV HD, and the DirecTV DVR's. There is a LOT of information on these forums with regard to that. You will find discussions of the differences between Tivo and the R15/HR20, discussions of the development and upgrading of both DVR's, discussions of MPEG4 implementation, etc. Please take some time to read through the existing threads, then ask questions following up on unanswered concerns.

Carl
