    Considering switching from Directv

    I've been with Directv for nearly 10 years but having a continual problem of audio cutouts they can't resolve. I have a HR44, HR24 and 3 clients currently. Anything I should consider before making a decision? Will I be happy with Dish picture quality? Genie vs Hopper? Appreciate any feedback.

    DirectTV parental controls suck. I wish there was a way to just block out the adult channels without it causing a bunch of premium channels as showing blocked title. How do see the actual title and info for a "blocked title" show? Edit: The title blocked, but I can still watch it. Great...
