I have a customer that is trying to decide which one to use. To me this is much like do I cut off my finder or my ear. Neither one is good.

I personally have Directv because I threatened to cancel and got 15 movie channels free and they chopped my bill down to $68.00. If your client can get Uverse and the price is right I would do that as you can record 2 low def and 2 hi def shows at the same time (someone else posted on RC that if you are less than 1500 feet from the node it may be 3 hi def channels). Now if he doesn't need a lot of channels he might look at Comcast.

I know Directv is working on Uverse-type recording options (more than 2 shows and you can access recorded content from any TV). Also, I think Uverse limits you to 4 boxes but Directv doesn't.

So after digressing Directv or Uverse in my final answer...
Defectus tuus consilium carpere discrimen mihi non constituit.

You can have as many boxes as you want with U-Verse, you can only watch 4 (6 if you are upgraded) feeds at a time though.

The picture on Uverse is heavily compressed and looks like crap IMO. So I'd have to say cable.

Directv now has multi room viewing. Add as many HD DVR's as you want and watch them on any TV that is part of your Directv network. No "you can only watch 2 shows in HD at once" crap like with Uverse.

I have had both but have Uverse now. The picture quality is fairly compressed and overall not that great. Their internet services are fairly good dependent on location. The DVR portion is ok and the ability to pick up watching programs in different rooms is nice. I feel the picture from Comcast is a bit less compressed and the internet services I got from Comcast was strong. So in summation if I could get Comcast in my area I would have their service. I also heard that later this year comcast is gonna add the ability to watch programs across different DVR's in the home.
