I know this might be the wrong forum for this, but can anyone answer questions on Voom's local OTA antennas for Long Island? I might be moving to Western Suffolk, and wanted to know if there's a certain antenna model I should request to receive WCBS-TV/DT, WNBC-TV/DT, WNYW-TV/DT, WABC-TV/DT, WWOR-TV/DT, WPIX-TV/DT (very important to me as I'm a Mets fan), WNET-TV/DT, WLIW-TV/DT, as well as some of the Connecticut locals. Also, does the FCC FireWire mandate apply to satellite? Initially, I plan on hooking up Voom to a Sony 27" Wega SD 4:3. Will the Voom receiver automatically letterbox, or stretch the HD channels (I was told the box will downres to 480i over component and composite.)? How are the installers in terms of working with you about stringing the coax and dish mounting? Do they try to "nickle and dime" you, or are they fairly accommodating (I want them to run a cable into the basement, and drill a small hole through the floor and string to the main floor rooms)?
