Wow, not much discussion in this thread, most recent post is a month and a half ago. I'm waiting for my antenna recommendation to come back from solid signal, but wanted to get some input from any OTA HD people locally as well.
We live in Maple Grove, just W of 494. Just slightly S of being due W from the broadcast towers in Shoreview (I used to live basically in the shadow of the towers on Lexington and 694). I have DirecTV, including both their HR10-250 HD Tivo and their own HR20 HD DVR and am getting locals via the HR20. In addition, I would like to get PBS in HD (my daughter likes to watch sesame street and while at 2yrs she won't appreciate the quality, I'd rather be watching a better picture
). Plus, I'd like to have a during the thunderstorm option of picking up locals as well as getting the weather and other sub-channels that I understand exist.
I'd prefer an attic or indoor antenna just to not have to mount something else up on the roof or in conjunction with the D* dish. I have access to the attic and need to pull an RG6 or two up there anyway so it's not a problem to pull one for an antenna too.
If anyone is still reading/replying to this thread, I'd gladly accept any advice you have to offer.
