Hello, i just got a HD plasma (Panasonic TH-42PX50U) over the holidays and now I'm struggling with how to get HD on the dam thing! I currently have Direct TV satellite and I was really happy with the DTV/tivos combination that we had. Looks like if i wanted to stay with DTV, i'd need to get a new $400 hd-dvr, get an antenna for locals (!!!), and would end up with less HD channels than with comcast. (Also, i think that they are changing all their satellite technology later this year to MPEG4...so might need new boxes then??) Alternately, i can go to comcast, but then its more expensive, i have to chuck the existing DTV-tivos (which I own & love and only pay $5/month for tivo service) and RENT DVRs from comcast at $10/ month EACH....and lose some of the tivo-specific functionality. Do the above sound correct? If so, I will probably leave DTV and move over to comcast. Am I missing any decision making factors? Follow up questions: Do both the DTV and comcast hd-dvrs have hdmi output? Or maybe component is ok? Also, this tv is one of the more popular hd flat panels out there and has gotten good reviews in the consumer-grade publications.....maybe not in the high-end reviews....BUT, when i got home i was incredibly disappointed in how regular definition looked on it (much worse than my old crappy CRT). Anyone know if there would be a difference in how standard def would look from DTV vs comcast? Sorry if this is the wrong forum, but i appreciate any feedback!
