I too will wait it out till FiOS is available. My neighbor works for Verizon and told me FiOS construction for my neighborhood is 2 months away. I wish DTV could have found a better way to deply the HD-MPEG4 signals which didn't require such a large dish.
They maybe starting constuction in two months but depending on the existing infrstructure that is in place it could be 6 to 8 months before they light up the first segment or longer. They started construction and deploying in my area close to 9 months ago and it is still not available
i feel bad...i called to turn off one hdtivo and they didnt try to keep me at all
So...What is a 10-250 DTV/Tivo customer to do?
This is true. But since my neighbor works there I'm sure we will get some priority.
Doubt it, unless he is at the top of the food chain in the corporate structure, cousin is fairly high up in the district chain of command here, he live 6 houses away and we still don;t have it. i wish it would get here, want to dump this slow cable modem, dsl is not an option due distance from the CO and a T1 is still a little out of the cost range my wife will allow me to spend. Have no desire for their TV services
Is there a link to a drawing / specifications of the new 5-lnb dish satellite?
I need to understand why it must go on the roof
I have the HR10-250 and really don't want to move to the direct tv dvr, as I have had Tivo for 7 years and love it.
If this is the case, you don't need the new dish. You will have to get one if you want to receive MPEG4 HD channels and, at the moment, this means an HR2x.
Alternatively, you can live without HD for 9 months to a year and get the new TiVo-based DVR when it is released and you will need a new dish then. It's pointless looking at today's dish as it may well change design between now and then.
BTW. Who said it MUST go on the roof? Mine is attached to the side of the house and many are installed on a pole next to the building. It does weigh considerably more than the 3LNB version, but there is no rule that says it must be on the roof.
I think I may wait - the only HD I think I get are a few premium channels. I stated out with a Mitsubishi HD receiver with no DVR and also had a regular Tivo DVR so I would switch between the two receivers but once I got used to Tivo I preferred Tivo regular to HD with no DVR, when the Regular DVR went out I bought the HR-250 locally. So I am about 1500 into two HD receivers over 7 years and I will be out of pocket next year for the new tivo so its a lot of money and I don't know if I want to have Tivo in two rooms and the new DVR in the other - getting a few weeks notice just doesn't cut it.
When I read this I thought it was a requirement
