    I am still very new to the Home Theatre arena. I currently own a Panny 51" 4:3 HDTV (I watch OTA TV predominantly, DVDs 20%). I do not have a good audio system yet but will in the next 3 - 6 months. Currently I am a Charter cable customer but will be moving and am considering moving to satellite by the end of the month. Which service, i.e. Dish or DirectTV would be the best choice? I will not be purchasing the more expensive STB for HDTV signals right away (cost is a factor) but hope to later. I also want to connect our 27" direct view TV to whichever satellite system I choose so it will have to be a dual LNB system. I need to start planning now for the end of the month move. Thanks for any help.

    I like the DirecTV receiver with TiVo.
