Re: [CFL] Questions before Moving to Brighthouse from DirecTV-Or

I recenty switched to BH from Dish and was pleasantly surprised.

Pros: Central Florida BH has a good amount of HD programming and the picture quality is excellent. Another plus is BH offers all of the local sub-channels, some of which are great channels. Dish doesn't carry any local sub-channels.

Cons: The Cisco DVRs I have worked well but the programming guide is quite disappointing compared to Dish and Direct. I was thinking of getting my own TIVO so I could go back to using a well-developed guide but haven't yet done it. I miss the way Dish showed the SD and HD version of a channel on the same channel number. Example HBO on channel 300. If you have a HD receiver it shows it in HD, a SD receiver it shows in SD. Much easier to remember channel numbers and so many less channels to browse through on the guide.

Overall I am happy I moved to BH. I can deal with the crappy guide for now. Hopefully BH is listening to the feedback from the members unhappy with the guide to create something more user friendly.
