I use Charter Cable for Internet but have DirecTV for my viewing needs. Yeah, I hate to pay Charter $50/mth for such crappy service, but it's my only option for high speed Internet since I too am in the DSL black hole.
But, I just can't see getting HD through DirecTV....they only have five channels (not counting premium channels that I don't watch)! As a diehard Tivo user, it's just too much money for equipment for very little return on my viewing experience.
Question about the channel linup for OTA HD - I setup a TV5 last night (don't laugh) and now receive all of the local OTA HD channels (only have to make a slight adjustment to get 62.1, all others come in off one position of the TV5 sitting on top of my TV in my living room...hooray!). But I get 25.1-25.5 on those channels, not the mapped 33.1-33.5 as indicated in the post by Jerry. Can anyone else confirm this? All the other channels as listed being mapped are what I see except this one set.
