If you think you can pick up OTA HD, then go for it.


After all, you are talking about 1080i with OTA vs.

480i upconvert on Dish.


Be forewarned... if you think you will have OTA analog

reception problem, you might have OTA digital problem.

You might want to check with your neighbors with OTA

antenna and find out they have any reception issue first.

This would give you a better idea if you want to take on

this project.


Hope this helps.

Your upconverted Dish locals will look (at best) the same as all the other Dish channels except for the "real" HD channels like the demo channel and HBO and Showtime HD. Your OTA HD locals should look the same as the real HD channels. Dish or DirecTV don't send any locals in HD mode.
