Thanks.  I've been lucky with my Directv DVR.  No problems at all.

I'm lucky they deliver at all here.  I'm not really impressed with UPS.  Fedex, I've had no issues.

Not here when It was supposed to.  Of course, they've been known to give my stuff to the guy on the other street all the time... we both live at the same house number after all.

Saying they were supposed to deliver on Saturday means they deliver on Saturdays, does it not?
Some places are remote enough they don't offer Saturday service, but that is the exception, not the rule.
BTW Saturday service is only offered on air delivery. If it was shipped regular ground Saturday delivery is not an option.

It looks like they have reached an agreement. I turned on the TV this morning to see that the channels are back on. I have heard no news about it, I just saw the results.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Viacom and DirecTV announced Friday that they have reached a deal, putting aside their dispute and allowing programming to return to the airwaves.

The agreement ends a dispute that has interrupted programming since July 10.

Too late...making the switch to Dish.  Talked to another Directv user and they are switching as well.  I may go back in two years for a cheaper deal but for now I'm done with them.

Dish doesn't seem to settle their disputes they drop the channels for good, witness AMC.
Now I wonder if Direct will raise prices.

I have had DTV for maybe 8 or 9 years. Never had an issue with them. I have read way too many bad things about Dish and even witnessed a couple of things. I have no desire to switch. Not sure what you think will be better over there but good luck to you. Oh, and no AMC? fugitaboutit

I've talked to several people about Dish...no complaints.   I haven't had any issues with Directv aside from their programming issues with their vendors.  I've had Directv for quite awhile.  Longer than you, without technical issues.  Haven't called them for support at all.  I get all mine from the forums, oddly enough.  I've been thinking about switching to Dish since their last escapade.  It's coming down to switching for the following: vendor disputes, pricing of packages, new equipment, trying something different, and last but not least BBCA HD.

As far as installation goes....I wasn't impressed with the guy they sent out.  He had to come back twice.

Which guy, the Dish dude? Have you switched already?

The Directv dude... ;)   In process of switching...debating on whether to angst about some of the recorded shows I have on disk that I haven't watched in years.  More than likely I'm leaning towards 'I don't care'.

Oh, it sounded like maybe you already made the switch.

Yeah, what's to do with all those old shows. Let me guess, stuff about WW2 and the like?
