to be accurate, cognitive dissonance occurs when you have to make a choice between two desireable things. Since your brain can't handle the thought of not gettting something that you find desireable, it begins denigrating the object you didn't choose.

which is why often after choosing between two things you wanted, you begin to really like the one you chose, and begin seeing the other choice in a negative light.

now if you were trying to choose between comcast and hd-tivo.......wait that wouldn't be a hard choice at all

No. Cognitive dissonance is a psychological phenomenon which refers to the discomfort felt at a discrepancy between what you already know or believe, and new information or interpretation that does not fit with what you already know or believe.
