I was thinking of switching from cable with HD to Dish with HD because of more HD programming, but would like to know if their is still problems with some of the receivers? My current cable provider is charter and has 10 to 15 HD channels depending on if HBO, Showtime etc. is subscribed to or not. But the quality of picture is very good, in both HD and even the SD, after I installed a splitter to bypass charter STB for SD reception. Personally i would like more HD content, but NOT if the equipment and/or picture quality is poor. I currently have two HD tv's both sony's, and three sd tv's. Both of the sony,s have atsc tuners of their own. But would that help with possible OTA problems of some of Dish's receiver's, primarily the 211, 222 or 622? Or maybe I should wait? Your opinions are appreciated.
