Andrew, I have D* and can never see a difference in PQ compared to OTA. Before my Tivo got a software update the other night, I would not watch the local Fox affiliate due to audio dropouts. I would instead watch D* channel 88 Fox via NY. Now, after the Tivo update I will give the local Fox channel 2.1 OTA a try again. I do like to support the local economy, so maybe I'll see a local ad to take advantage of.
