Comcast Cablecards/TivoHD XL
I'm moving to another city soon, and if for some reason I cannot get Dish, I'll most likely drop the dough on a TivoXL and use Comcast.
Anyone have experience with cable cards, just wondering if all the bugs are sorted out.Dish Network / Top 120 / 2 H(1 HWS) / 1 J

Why can't you get Dish? Dish has country wide service. If it's because your landlord forbids it, I'm attaching a link that may help.

Comcast just sent me a new rate sheet, and the cost of cablecards was way down. Free for the first one per device and $1.50/mo for the second. Still, with the TIVO subscription, I think you will find this a much costlier solution. Stay with DISH if at all possible.
While you are checking, make sure that TIVO has guide info for your area as the TIVO cannot use the guide that Comcast supplies with the stream.

I just talked to Comcast and saw where the do have one cheap price for ccards now, so thats good.
Other than channel offering, switching from Vip722k and Dish to Comcast and TivoHD XL is not a biggie. I just lose out on the 4 channels at once.
If you are tired of the Moto box, you should reall give the tivohd a look; offers many things past recording cable tv.Dish Network / Top 120 / 2 H(1 HWS) / 1 J

The right answer is to get out of this rental house this summer and find a place that has a view of the satellite. I'd much rather go back to the 722.
