If you you are thinking of switching to D* when is your drop dead date for E* to wake up and add more HD?

When Dish loses all their satellites and declares bankruptcy, I will consider it.

Plain and simple, I'm staying because HD doesn't mean that much to me, so there is not reason for me to leave!

Pacific Northwest, where it rains a lot...
I've been with E* for close to a decade. I'd like more HD, but am willing to be patient for it. I'm not going to rant about it or complain anymore. When they put more up, then they do, and I'll celebrate with everyone else wanting more HD (CNN doesn't really count).

I have been with Dish for over 10 years....Love the HD I have....know I will get more eventually...Just need to be patient and wait for the new birds to go up...I know they will eventually have all or most of the HD Direct has..no complaining or whining or demanding here...

I should add while an HD picture is outstanding it is not the end of the world to watch something in SD....

All I am really looking for is CSNBA HD (Comcast Sportsnet HD) and I would be happy with that. Frustrated with it being uplinked and not available for a long time now.

I will stick with E* cuz here for D* you must have a wing dish for locals and I do not need anymore dishes attached to my property then I have now.
That is interesting. Every Direct customer, myself included, requires only 1 dish to receive all channels, including locals; whereas all of the Dish customers in our area require at least two dishes to receive HD and locals. I have never seen more than 1 Direct dish on a single roof, and I more often than not, see multiple Dish dishes.

Considering how inflammatory, wouldn't this fit better in the war zone?

Bascially the DVR is what keeps me on Dish, Direct can't record 2 SAT and OTA concurrently, actually Direct can't receord OTA!! Kinda lame, if they match the 722 I'm on Direct in 10 seconds.

Actually in my DMA D* requires two dishes on every single install as the locals in my DMA are on the 72 or 77 bird.
