I don't have any problems with their service, the only dropouts I have is during thunderstorms & I have less downtime than people with Cox cable, as for price well it's about the same as Cox but I have a lot more HD, as for the equipment I have a very early HR20, a HR21 & an AM21, I've returned 1 HR20 that was a release model when the HDMI output quit working & the record series works all the time & I have remote record which I can use to set up recordings over the internet when I forget to set it for something.
That's not a bad track record as far as my experience goes.
Until we get FIOS out here (won't be anytime soon!
) DirecTV is my best option, especially when it comes to HD programing.
