D* HR20-100 direct to a Sony KV-34HS420 over HDMI and to an Onkyo TX-SR303 over Toslink. Same setup as with Comcast, except it was a Motorola 3416 STB and the Onkyo was an older but very similar model. But the newer channels are better. Some compression (more than Comcast was here), but much less noticeable. The locals are my main concern. I've purchased an antenna and got that going instead, but I would have rather not had to go with that.

Forgive me for bumping a contentious thread, but I was hoping that moderators and industry pros might weigh in on the results.

My sincere thanks to everyone who makes AVSforum such an awesome resource.

You're not forgiven. Let the thread die, it has run its course.
