Hi,I have finally decided to jump into the DTH bandwagon. I am curently paying Rs. 360 pm for cable wallah, which sometimes has bad quality, and i am not getting HBO.My question is, do I have an option in what STB brand to choose, if one is better than the other?Also, anything to keep in mind while getting the dish, like choosing it or how to get it installed etc.?Thanks.

IMO, customers should be allowed to choose / buy their own STBs. The STBs we are getting now are obviously manufactured based on a overriding deciding factor, COST. So we get what can only be described as technologically impoverished STBs. So let them give us the cards and we will buy a better STB / DVR :p . Maybe, just maybe... by sometime in 2007...
