No NFL Network. No Sunday Ticket. Not as many movie channels.

DTV seems to have alot more non-package sports stuff, too. I can watch most of the Rangers games down here on one of the FOXSW affiliates usually.

Mediacom. Cable and internet are included in my rent. I'm looking to move, though. I priced how much it would cost to pay for what I've got now. $46.95/month for the Family Cable (same as I've got now, all extended channels minus movie channels) with a $25 installation fee (since the hookups are already there). The internet would be around $45/month (and that's with a $10 discount for having the Family Cable as well). Geez!!! Any cheaper alternatives? I know I want the cable internet. I could get Basic Cable for $9.95/month, but then I'd have nothing to watch except local programming.

Sunflower Broadband (http://www.sunflower.com). Pretty affordable, reasonably decent customer service and short hold times. They seem to have a hard time keeping some of their channels at 100% up time. I wouldn't mind so much, if the down times didn't always happen during sporting events.

i've had it for 2 years, but i didn't like having to make a commitment for a period of time...

so when my 2 years were up and i had started to download a lot of music (i didn't really mean that, record co. executives, really), i went to cable...

Apartments are a bit tougher than houses but most of the time we can do it. We put them on chain link fence posts or in a 5 gallon bucket of concrete. Call a local dealer, they'll come look at it for free.

Okay, so I'd have to get a home phone, too. How much is basic phone service plus DSL? I was trying not to get a phone put in since I use my cell for everything. One less bill, the better. If it's cheaper for a phone line plus DSL than it is for cable, I might consider it though. And which is cheaper, cable TV or satellite? I'll be moving into another apartment.

Direct TV is my primary provider. I also have Bresnan cable so I have local stations and local weather station.

Nice thing is I got Bresnan Cable for my internet access, and get my cable TV for free for the next 6 months. After the 6 months expires I'll probably drop the local cable, even though it's only $16 month for the basic service that gives me my local channels.

Most dsl providers will let you get it for a few dollars more per month without wasting money on a phone line.

In the last two cities I have lived the cable and dsl providers offered pretty good specials. If you have one of the major ones in your city you could probably find deals on the internet for around $20-25 per month for internet.

Ask your dad if he has two dishes, one for regular channels and one for the locals. IIRC that is the case where you live. If so, I can come up with one dish and maybe two. I think your dad can do the install since he's familiar with Directv. This would be by far your cheapest route to go.

I had Dish and Comcast together. That was several years ago when I could still get the KC local channels thru Dish. Then ther FCC stepped in after lawmakers put there braintrust together and thought that it was an unfair advantage to local advertising . ( Stupidest things I have ever heard of,Like I'm going to drive to KC to save money on a purchase ).

So I had to switch to Direct TV.

What was costing me about $ 840.00 per year to watch the Chiefs, Royals, Jayhawks now cost me about $ 1400.00 per year, and this is minus the Royals part. Pay more, get less.

I guess I'll look more closely at DTV when they bring down their HD stuff to be the same as the rest of their stuff, becuase right now with 3 TV's I would pay more using DTV then I do for Comcast, but I don't pay for digital cable because the extra cost and having to actually use a PoS box on my TV's pisses me off.

Time Warner, but if I had a choice, I'd tell them f***ers to hit the road. I had an issue recently with my High Definition that took them a month and a half to fix. I was getting about three of the twleve channels and the rest were either badly pixelated or didn't work at all. Problem was, I had to keep calling them to find out when the f*** they were going to take care of the problem. Every time, I had to explain again what the problem was to yet another customer service rep. I bet I made over two dozen phone that time. Every time, of course, I had to wait on hold forever. I demanded to have a single point of contact until they resolved the problem, but actually speaking to someone in charge there is like pulling teeth. I finally did get a hold of the supervisor in charge of the contractors and within three days they fixed the problem (it was water in a trap, whatever a trap is). It pisses me off to no end that a huge corporation like that, knowing that there are no alternatives for the consumer, can dick a person around like that. The worst customer service experience I've ever encountered.

I considered switching to satellite, but an HD receiver with Tivo was going cost me $500 plus I had to install an OTA antenna to get the local channels in HD. I'm glad that ordeal is finally over, and all my HD channels are working.

I wish I'd known this was going on so I could have laughed at you. hehe A trap is a device that either enables you to get subscription channels or prevents you from getting them. I watched the Iggles game at a sports bar that had the game in high definition. It's picture was no better than my SD picture. I have mine hooked up with the "S" video cable and AV cables rather than coax. Makes a hell of a difference.

Seriously, when you say the S-video cable makes that much difference over coax, think about the difference between RGB (component) cables and S-video.

The difference between HD and normal TV, especially for sporting events, is STRIKING. Your setup is preventing you from seeing it.

As I've stated before, I don't know much about Tivos. But i'm told that Tivo has the best features of the available equipment. Also, I know Herzig has blown some of them up. And, from reading D* message boards I see they have had some reliability issues. Directv is now making their own unit so Tivo will probably sell out or sink.

I don't care about the pixellation all that much anyway. It's not a show-killer. I consider it a fair trade-off for the joys of DVR. I don't know how I watched TV before DVR.

Well, over the span of six weeks, they replaced all the splitters and cable from the Cable Box/DVR to the telephone pole outside my house, as well as the DVR itself (this required 4 seperate service calls). Then they replaced some of the main line cabling. Then they replaced an underground feeder line. Then they finally fixed it by either replacing or repairing a trap that was full of water.

I have my HD tivo hooked up to HDMI and my dvd hooked up with component.

The quality is out of this world amazing.

Is HDMI that much of an improvement over component cables?

The big bonus I think of HDMI is that it has a much greater distance limitation, and I also believe it has an audio spec...

As I've stated before, I don't know much about Tivos. But i'm told that Tivo has the best features of the available equipment. Also, I know Herzig has blown some of them up. And, from reading D* message boards I see they have had some reliability issues. Directv is now making their own unit so Tivo will probably sell out or sink.
Well, Tivo did sign that deal with Comcast after the Direct TV thing, so they may be around a while longer.

Comcast may be big enough to save Tivo. I don't really care. Diretv makes (or has made) it's own units now. I haven't seen any info, good or bad, on them.

Dave ... how does all that work? Do you have to pay Time Warner for cable?

I think I saw somewhere that on Comcast you could get just their internet service without paying for cable.

The mission house where we will live just installed a phone for us and the bill goes to the church. Meaning we cannot add a calling service. The sect. said "get a calling card." She doesn't understand that my wife will call her mother every day and it is an in state call.

They also pay for Comcast cable and broadband. That I can live with. But, by mistake I clicked on a Vontage add and I discovered I can add Vontage service without the bill going to the church. Problem solved....

But, when we buy our own house I plan to get DirecTV ... based on Skips recommendation. Anyone know if he is reliable???? Therefore, my question is for later. I want cable internet but the wife will not allow me to have both Time Warner (out of Memphis) and DirecTY. So, if I can just get RR from them ... I can keep my Vontage telephone and get DirecTV

Skip,

Does DirecTV have picture in a picture? One of my sons had DirecTV. He is between jobs now and it is disconnected. He said you must have 2 dishes in order for PIP to work. As he said, "It is nice to watch 2 games at once."

I think you need two receivers for it to work, not two dishes.

It seems to me that it is a T.V. issue and not a cable or DirecTV issue??? But, what do I know?
