Cox Cable versus Dish Hopper?
I am a new poster on this site. We currently have Cox Cable in our home. In various years, we have had Satellite both Dish and Directv, However, the sight lines became obstructed by a tree, that we refused to cut down. Consequently, we had to switch to Cox cable system. My question is with the Dish Hopper. So far, I love all the things about the Hopper. I have discussed options with Dish, these last few days. Today I called my cable company to figure out options with a few of our Non-HD Tv"s in our home and "paring" down our package just for basic TV for these old "box" TV.s We currently have 5 HD flat screens in our home, a total of 7 tv/s all together, however, 2 are "old style" and not used often. Of course, Cox is trying to talk me out of Satellite all together and apologizing to me to for choosing Satellite! I do realize this is just a ploy to not cancel them. She suggested that I "Do my homework" on the Hopper. So what do you experts think? Should we keep our "old style" TVS on basic cable and go with the Hopper? What are the Hopper problems, that the cable woman seems to think there are? Any information would be helpful. I am very excited about the Hopper, but not if it is already full of problems. Thanks to all who respond.
