Hello,

I am new to the forum so I have a question concerning UTV.
Currently I am a E* customer but considering jumping to D*. If I purchase 2 UTV units will I have to pay 9.95 for each unit or 9.95 for one unit and a 4.99 mirroring fee for the other. I like E* but there PVR 721 is toooo expensive. How do you guys like the UTV??



Thanks

I love mine. The price of the 721 is what finally shook me loose from E*, since I got 2 UTV units for free after rebate.

2 options for the UTV's:

$9.95 + $4.95 for both(UTV fee), using MSN as your isp (3 free hours per reciever a month for internet access), or

$9.95 + $4.95 for both(UTV fee), plus $4.95 add'l per reciever to use your own ISP.

Internet on UTV works, but you may not be happy with it, especially if you have broadband at home. Once they allow us UTV'ers to use a USB ethernet port to access the internet, it will be a great device to occasionally access email, etc. from your favorite couch.

Both RCA and Sony make UTV's, but the Sony comes with a wireless keyboard... nice for searching.

They also have a deal for one RCA UTV and the dish for 0.00 if you are a new customer. You could then buy a Hughes GAEBO receiver for $49.95 and a multi-switch for about $30.

BTW I bought a keyboard off EBay for $17.

The UTV fee covers all UTVs on the same account.

I really like my two RCA UTV receivers. Both have worked flawlessly. I upgraded one of mine to 120GB and will now hold 105 hours.

UTV is awesome! Its just like a DP but way better, you really can't go wrong. I've never had one problem in 5 months.

It just proves that all the software issues of the DP were Dish's fault, while DTV and MS have clearly made a very stable product. To bad Dish didn't step up to the plate, otherwise I'd be with them still.

If you can fnd one, RS has the
RCA UTV for $79.And if your
already a subscriber, they need
proof, to let you off the hook
for anymore fees.

Thanks for all the info. I have one more question. PQ has become an issue with E*. You guys that have had E* know what I mean. Is D* better? I know that it is PQ is subjective but just trying to get idea??

That's an individual call. Go to a dealer (CC, BB, or RS) and see for yourself. Many have argued over which provider has better PQ.
When I switched to D* in March, I thought the D* PQ was better but, again, that's me...
