The major reason that I haven't switched is that in my area, the local
broadcast channels are still not available on the dish.  I could put up an
antenna and a switcher but that's a pain and won't work well for taping TV
shows when I'm not home or watching something else.  I'm sure that I could
figure something out but I also get a break on my internet service since I
have digital cable so the savings from a switch would not be much.
