We just moved to Kingwood from east Houston, and I didn't put an antenna up. I had OTA since 2002 and was tired of how my reception would change on the networks. It seemed like for a month, I'd get all stations fine, then I start having drops on 11 or 13. Fox would become unpredictable. The 2 would start up on me. I could never figure out what was causing the problems. I replaced RG-6, eliminated as many connections a possible, bought a new connector to my antenna, bought a rotor. I was sick of all that.
Maybe OTA has a better picture, but I love the reliability of D*.
I know the audio on 26 is a D* problem. I called yesterday and they said they are working on it. I had a picture problem on 26 a few weeks ago. I called D*. They said the same thing. The problem was fixed in about two days.
We just moved to Kingwood as well, from College Station. We are staying with friends until we close on our house. I hooked up a Winegard GS-2200 to a Samsung plasma our friends have (not sure of the model) and I am receiving 2, 11, 13, 20, 26, 39, and 55 without any problems at all. They live toward the back of Kingwood, in Sand Creek Village. My wife and I are buying a house in Oakhurst, and I am expecting great results there too when we get moved in.
