I have Dish but refuse to pay any more to them so just have standard DVR.  If you decide to get it let me know how you like it.

I have Dish now. Have 2 VIP722K's with OTA tuners. I am having 2 Hoppers with Sling installed with two Joeys on the 22nd of Feb. Only cost was two USB OTA tuners about $60. Upgrade was free. But of course 24 month commitment.  I will post back later. Been watchin Utube stuff on the Hopper. But it all seems a bit slanted. But that's ok I guess. Has a 2 TB drive. apps. on the go video. PTAT, Prime Time Any Time. You can turn this off if you want. But I still like the major networks> It will record ABC, NBC,CBS and FOX. Every night from 7 to 10. After 24 hours you can use auto hop which skips all commercials. That PTAT is how they can say record 6 things at once. With out PTAT it's really 4 max. Of course they have a new Super Joey coming out in the next 3 months adds two tuners. There is also virtual Joeys which  I will not use That is a app in place of a piece of hardware. Can be loaded on a PS3/4, xbox 360 or one. Smart tv  and so on. Very cool. My bill will go down a bout 15.00 a month so not to bad. Now to see how it works. :){cheers}
