I am on my second RCA directv receiver and now this one is malfunctioning. I have the following choices: 1. Buy another brand of receiver becuase of my terrible experience with RCA products. 2. Get another RCA receiver. I have heard that all receivers have the same 'guts' in them and thus getting another brand does not necessarily mean better product. 3. Try my luck at DISH. 4. Give up on DBS and go back to cable. 5. The hell with it all and just watch DVD's. Your opinions are appreciated. Thanks.
