Hi all, my two cents. I have Directv and Adephia cable, switching to Dish for more HD. I also have a small, 6 foot antenna up, in s.w. Millcreek, clear view of the sky and I have some difficulties with getting LOCAL digital. I do get it though with proper oientation. I DID try a 160 inch antenna to get Cleveland, moving the antenna 5 degress variation (and I also knew the directions to point via a compass and using the Cleveland analogs as a guide). I did not get any CLeveland channels on a good clear day. Actually, I was surprised at that.
March 1, I am going to Dish with their new release of not ready for primetime mpeg4 and their new release of their mepg4 hd receiver dvr VIP 622. Oh boy, oh boy. I have 2 Sony HD sets, 3 HD OTA receivers.
