I know this question has been done to death, but after several searches my questions are still not answered. So I would greatly appreciate your answers to my questions. I live in Berwyn, Illinois which is just south of Chicago. I have comcast digital cable with HD. I'm currently on a promotional pricing package but that will end in November. So I want to swith to a cheaper format. I just purchased a house that has three dish network satellites one the roof, but i'm not totally convinced on them (dish network) finally to the point. I would like to know which is better Directv or Dish? I would like a pvr and HD. Which has the best PQ in HD and standard TV? Also where is the best place to purchase the equipement? Thanks in advance for all your help guys.
