Hi, I am thinking of changing from std cable to sat.tv and have a few questions regarding direct tv. I am looking at either dish network or direct tv and have already posted some questions regading dish network. I am considering the choice xtra package (34.99 12 months) and possbily the dvr service but probably not hd. I have 4 tvs in the house but 2 of them are in extra rooms that rarely get used and I was wondering if you can split the output from 1 receiver to go to 2 different tvs to save $5 a month? Can you get the free hd dvr if you dont sign up for the hd or dvr service initially? And if you cant, are you able to drop the hd or dvr service within the contract period without a penalty? How do they handle local channels? Is it required like DN? Any other thoughts or help regarding getting the best deal is greatly appreciated.
