The Wingaurd antenna is the only one they send, send me a PM and I will take a e-picture and email it over. I was really amazed at the reception, and was wondering what I was really going to get. Upon the factory installation DTV brought out the RCA DTC210. A pretty good unit. Comes complete with RF remote (which was a bonus). The $149 installation came with the upgraded eliptical dishm wingaurd antenna installation, multiswitch if needed, and DTC210 receiver. It was basically a test.
Since I already had the newer upgraded dish. They didnt install it. I also had the Terk MS58 cascade multiswitch. So all they really installed was the wingaurd, and a couple of diplexers for the OTA locals.
I wasnt sure what I was going to get, and DTV guaranteed me that if I wasnt satisifed I could back out and pull the installation. Upon installation, the following HD channels came in: 3-1, 5-1, 8-1, 10-1, 12-1, 45-1, 51-1, and 61-1. NO 15-1 (ABC) feed.
I figured that was better then I was going to get, and kept the installation. I then went down to Showcase down on Camelback and picked up the HD-DVR. I've had TIVO for 4+ years and not without it wasn't an option. I plugged in the HD-DVR, and you know what? 15-1 came it. I was stoked.
Monday Night Football on 15-1 looked like XBOX NFL 2004. It looked amazing.

According to the HD-DVR my ANT-IN signal strength was 92%.
I have seen the COX HD setup at a friends house, I cannot remember what receiver they had, I wasn't too impressed with it comparitively with what my setup was. The hd monitors were pretty much the same. I have a Pioneer Elite Pro620HD, they had the Pro630HD. Both were plugged in component video feeds. I guess if you want simplistic installation,
I did notice that UltimateHD showed up on the DTV feed over the last few days. That was a bonus.
GregoryHarding: Remember they are the cable company. They make promises they cannot keep. Like digitial cable is so much better. You'll never pry my dish from my dead dying fingers.
