    Thinking of Dumping Dish

    With the news about D* future HD possibilities and the lack of a quality HD recorder, I feel that E* just does not have much to offer me anymore. I joined because they said and were at the time the leader in HD. But now, really, what reasons are there to stay? What does E* have that D* does...
