i had direct tv for 3 yrs went to dish and had nothing but trouble out of thier best hdvr 722 dual tuner. This was the sorroiest piece of *** i ever had got rec replaced 3 times in 4 months.
So stay away from dish, went back to direct havent had a problem yet in 2 years.
Directv is the only sat company to me. If u have dish hd try direct to see what real 1080 is all about.The remotes that dish has are the most complex ive ever seen.Every time u want upgrade with dish u have to get a different dish and sign up 4 two more yrs.
