Advertisements Don't look at the deal, look at the equipment you get. From what I read in this forum (and some others), the Dish DVR sucks big time. I haven't tried it myself, so don't take this as an opinion, but I would suggest if you are serious about switching, check out the Dish forums and see what they are saying. After all, any opinion expressed in this, the DIrecTV forum will be slightly (!) biased.
