    Is This Normal ...?

    So I've been back with DirecTV for a week now, enjoying the service, etc. Used to have three HR-2Xs, now the Genie and two minis. But I've noticed that when I turn on a TV that's connected to a mini, I often get a white screen for about 5 seconds before the channel engages. Also have been having...

    We're baaaa-aack

    Well, after two years of lower monthly bills being bundled with Mediacom, they raised our price to the point where it's no longer advantageous to pay less but get less in the form of unavailable channels (MLB Network, NHL Network, NBA TV, BeinSports), channels with excessive pixelation (NBC...

    Sports PQ on Sling

    With my cable contract coming up soon, I'm looking for alternatives. I stream entertainment occasionally (ABC on demand, HBO Now, Netflix) and get near-cinema quality with my near-100mbps internet connection. I have also had excellent picture quality, near-digital satellite resolution and depth...

    Internet Held Hostage

That kind of saving was too good to turn...

    iPhone 6S Plus or Galaxy S7?

    OK: My Verizon Galaxy S5 is doing very weird things. I can either pay $100 to insurance to have them replace it, or I can pay about the same to Verizon to upgrade my phone, either to a Samsung Galaxy s7 Edge or the iPhone 6 Plus. Here's my dilemma: The iPhone, which I used several years ago, is...

    Satellite No Longer Cost Effective?

    Is the bloom off the rose for satellite TV? When I got satellite years ago, both services' programming was more diverse than what I could get from Mediacom, my cable company, they offered far better picture quality, and later, they offered HD and DVR service. But since, then, Mediacom has come...

    MLB Network, etc.

    My generous cable company, Mediacom, doesn't carry MLB Network ... or NHL Network or NBA TV. So if a game is on one of those channels, it isn't available on their streaming services. Is there any way to get those channels on another device?

    Streaming NBA League Pass

    Anyone have this streaming-only? How is the video quality? I watched the free trial, and the video quality over Roku on 37gb was pretty bad.

    Know This Has Been Discussed Before, But . . .

    So here's my situation: I'm a DTV sub out of contract I have four TVs, three in HD I have whole home, with two HR-21s and an HR-22. They perform reasonably well. I can probably get an equipment upgrade for little or nothing, which of course would lock me in for another two years. Not a...

    What Do You Miss, Coming From --------?

    Hello, and glad to be back at SatGuys! What brought me back was the site's leaning to DISH, and I have a question, as I am considering a return to DISH. I've been a DirecTV sub for the past 8 or so years. My question is based on the line from the Joni Mitchell song "Big Yellow Taxi" -- "You...
