Should I switch to DirecTV?

Episode 928 (14:19)

Walter from Huntington, WV

Walter has a DVR, and the frame advance doesn't work going forward. Dish says it's a software problem, so he's thinking of switching to DirecTV. Scott doesn't think the picture quality is as good as Dish, though, but he says that the difference is minor. Scott switched to it because he wanted to see the Olympics in 3D. Every once in awhile, the DirecTV image gets pixelated and Scott never saw that on Dish. Also on the Fox channels in LA, the commercials have a "zipper" effect, which is weird and only happens on Fox stations' commercials. Aside from that, Scott likes the DirecTV's user interface much better and he likes the program guides. And the frame advance backs off a bit to account for human interaction.
