    DTivo vs. Directv DVR

    HI all, I switched to comast 1 yr ago regrattably, and now want to move back to D*. I have my two original DTivo's, but the thought of using them thru vonage brings back horrible memories. But, my wife loved the tivo and misses it daily. Im debating whether or not to get the new DVRs...

    Comcast in the Dallas area

    Hi Neutron, I live in Dallas and have had comcast for about a year- switched to get HD locals which neither D* nor E* had at the time. HD picture looks on par with D*/E*, SD quality is average. DVR is absolutely, 100%, horrible. Prior to comcast I had DirecTivo's, and prior to that E* with...

    Too Much $$$ to upgrade, going to DISH

    Hi Madisonbdish- I wasnt referring to mirroring charges which are identical for both providers. I was talking about the lease charges. Lease = rent, and last I checked renting meant you paid to borrow something- this was $5 per box when I was with dish, IN ADDITION to the mirroring fee of...

    Too Much $$$ to upgrade, going to DISH

    Ok--- So if it would cost you $200 for 3 new units--- Dish charges you $5/ month to lease. so $200 compares to $15/month--- in one year, you will have paid the same amount with Dish. Except a) you will continue to pay as long as you are leasing recievers, and b) you will have inferior...

    Direc tivo problems..need some feedback

    I just switched from E* last week. The RCA DVR80 is just as quiet as my 508 was. The Grid Guide is VERY slow- embarrasingly slow. But the Tivo Guide is much faster, and better overall IMO. To switch to it, bring the guide up and hit "info".

    If you are a DirecTV customer and don't have a DTivo, you're crazy!

    keep in mind the phase 3 dishes have a switch built in, up to four outputs.

    Dish Customer thinking of switching..

    I switched this week and got 2 D* Tivos-- previously had service with E*, and had 2 508's. The Tivos just blow away the 508 in so many ways I cant list them all here. :) I was a BIG supporter of E* for years, but finally faced the fact that there is much better programming and equipment out...

    Is this possible for new setup?

    D* offers a 2-room setup for free. If I want to add 2 DTivo's, its another $199 (with $50 rebate, $149). This is for 2 dvr40's. Can I just get the 2-room system for free, then go to best buy and buy 2 dvr80's for the same $199 total, and throw the original D* recievers in the closet? If...
