Well, that is what is keeping me with DISH. The DVRs are pretty nice. I am more for quality than the competition having more HD channels. DISH will catch up. They just have had bad luck with satellite launches. Not their fault. I just wish they had respect for SatelliteGuys and come out with some kinda statement of info.
Honestly, I was concerned about switching from Dish because of the DVR reviews but I can honestly tell you that after going from a 622 to a HR21, I have little complaint...they just rolled out a software enhancement that matches and even surpassing some of the 622 capabilities. Only thing I miss is the 2 tv capability and the OTA tuner but the OTA tuner issue should be a mute point by next month. I also love the fact that I can program my DVR from work via the internet.
And as to compression, HD PQ is much better on Direct. Ultimately, people choose a carrier based on what their own preferences are, not on what someone else does.
