I just got in on the (H)DTV scene. H is in parentheses because I only have the cheap and crappy WinTV-D as my tuner. Right now I can receive CBS (7), Fox (9),
PBS (11), and ABC (12) on a homemade dipole cut for channel 7 thumbtacked to my ceiling. I've also made contacts with Gold 33 (29) on a silver sensor and WB (22) using a shoddier dipole I tried to cut for channel 2 which I don't use now because it didn't hold the 2 actual HD stations 7 and 12 in.
Anyhow, I wonder who's having success on bringing in channel 2 and OTA and what they're using. Is it even possible with an indoor antenna? Also, to anyone thinking of going the OTA route, don't waste the money on a silver sensor, it just doesn't have enough gain for HDTV.
