I'm pissed at DirecTV for something that I won't bore you guys with, plus their DVRs suck, so maybe I'll go back to Dish as soon as I find a way to pay my termination fee or maybe just wait until my contract ends. Anyways, the reason I left Dish for DirecTV was for the fact of Dish had a bad reputation with channel disputes, plus I wanted to experiment with something different. I know that Dish doesn't carry SV locals, but most of the SV locals in my "moved" market are the same anyway. I know in the SV market of one, I could watch The Big Band Theory reruns in 5.1 and not 2.0 like the other has, but I can deal with that. I also remember you guys hear in the Dish forums telling me that Dish has improved their HD quality, so that's cool. (BTW, is their HD now on par with DirecTV's?) I'd miss Fox News Go access, but I'm sure Dish would get that someday and I could just use Dish Anywhere for the time being. I also love the fact that Dish has way more channels than DirecTV (with the exception of local channels), and the fact that the Hopper 3 has 16 tuners, and that the current OTA dongle has two (of which I'll use with the addition of my 1 TB TiVo Bolt). So with the Hopper 3 (16 tuners), the current OTA dongle (2 tuners), and my TiVo Bolt (4 tuners); that's 22 tuners!! With all that in mind, I am really considering switching. But the thing I'd dread when having Dish as I stated earlier is the darn channel disputes, are they still a problem guys?
