    The Howard Stern Show

    Fully agree. He is essentially the reason I still have it, otherwise I go to Slacker or Pandora full time on my blackberry.

    HD picture quality worsening?

    There is no doubt that E*'s hardware is better. MUCH BETTER. But (sounding like a broken record), PQ is not even close if you have a very large TV.

    HD picture quality worsening?

    When I left E* about a year ago (last July 29th, to be exact) the PQ had gone down significantly. D* HD channels were significantly more vibrant, the picture really popped. I have a few friends with E* and large TV's like mine, and all of them notice the PQ difference between the E* and D*. D*...

    HD picture quality worsening?

    I don't know what you have been watching. D* is SIGNIFICANTLY better than E* in terms of PQ. Granted, I have a 110" screen, but the noise on the E* HD channels pushed me to D*. I have yet to see any of the issues on D* that I saw every day on E*.

    DirecTV announces second quarter 2009 results

    I go over to a buddy who has Dish and just shake my head (same size screen). The amount of compression artifacts are just crazy. Dish has gotten better over the past year, but it still is not in the same league as D*.

    DirecTV announces second quarter 2009 results

    I have no idea how big of a screen you have, but on my 110" screen it is very noticable.

    DirecTV announces second quarter 2009 results

    When I left E* I was paying about $115 a month after all expenses. The retention people offered me the same package for $55 a month. I had no contract, so I had no need to take the offer. My guess is that they take care of the people who pay their bill on time (or on autopay, like me). Dish does...

    DirecTV announces second quarter 2009 results

    :rolleyes: Because Dish doesn't do the same... I left Dish last year for DirecTV and they offered me the moon (I left anyway because I had already had D* installed, and because of NFL ST). They have called me every 3 months since then offering up all kinds of discounts to get me to come back.

    I'm a D* sub

    I have not looked back since I left E*, Lkr. The PQ is significantly better, although it appears that E* does have more HD channels right now. The hardware is better on E*, but D* isn't terrible.

    The only interesting part of the show was Artie's segment. The rest of the show was terrible.

    Sirius/XM Channel Numbers

    I am happy with it... and I have 30 presets on my radio so it really doesn't matter. I don't know any of the channel numbers, personally.

    Man, I sure do miss that third tuner...

    I don't regret leaving E* either... I left for the better quality HD. D* is still significantly better than E* in terms of PQ, IMO.

    Sirius signal down... anybody else?

    Well... this sucks. I just installed it today in my car, was really listening for the first time (showing it off to the wife who thinks I'm crazy to buy it)...

    Sirius signal down... anybody else?

    This happened as I was driving home from dinner out. I then tried it on my home unit and the same deal... no signal. Anybody else seeing this?

    Sports pack Poll!

    No need for MMM... I get 3 of the 4 games OTA (I live in the Dayton, Ohio DMA, but can get the Cincinnati DMA OTA). I can watch the other on the internet. I will keep the package through this month for CBS CSTV (I think they will replay some of the tourney games during the week) and ESPNU...

    Sports pack Poll!

    I get it to watch Big East football and basketball games... not to mention all of the Pac10 and Big 12 football games during the fall. There are a ton of college sports throughout the season for me to watch on those channels. I will probably drop it come April, as the college sports I care...
