If you do go dish, I would suggest going DirecTV. However, doing so
might inhibit the use of a MythTV box. DirecTV does have local HD
channels now (at least 5, 8, 13, and 17). With their HD-DVR, there is
the DirecTV2PC option. Currently, there is only a Windows version of
the software, but I've heard that PS3 can recognize the HD-DVR and
play recorded programs. Of course, it really doesn't matter if you
have your PS3 and HD-DVR hooked up to the same TV. I believe there
are options with DirecTV to create your own media PC (add-in cards).
I haven't looked into those yet, since 3 DVRs are more than enough for
I've learned to never say never, but things would drastically have to
change before I would recommend Mediacom to anyone. I'd recommend OTA
over Mediacom. But I'd recommend DirecTV over OTA.
