Re: HD DVR
- Sorry, Randy, I have to disagree with you. I don't know about Alameda
cable, but Dish Network has got Comcast beat comin' and goin'! Dish has
the ViP622, an HD DVR that works great, is easy to use, doesn't crash,
and it has three tuners and a really good EPG. Dish also offers 30 HD
channels before you even think about the movie channels or PPV! I pay a
lot less for Dish than most Comcast customers pay for their service,
too. My monthly bill is $67.
I don't think anyone beats that deal.

Actually, Comcast could have a MUCH better offering if
they used the Scientific Atlanta 8300HD series STBs. SA
is light years ahead of Moto on their stability, EPG, and
other functions. It is just that Moto is the platform for
CA and such in the BA so Comcast must use their STBs.
