upgrading my internet service, should I change DTV equipment?
I have DTV service with an HR44 and have been satisfied. I live in a remote location with poor over the air signals. Until now, my internet service was also satellite based (slow and expensive), and just recently was able to get Spectrum fiber optic service with solid 300 Mb/sec data.
So, at the moment I have kept the DTV service, and am considering upgrading to newer equipment/service.
One aspect of this decision is the desire to keep a DVR with a programming schedule and menu, with the ability to record and FF through commercials on recordings.
I'm thinking that there should be a way to do this without a satellite receiver. Does DTV offer a box that can do this? Are there other services? From what I've seen, streaming services are OK, but not as friendly to interface.
