The Dish 6000 works as an HDTV receiver, so all you need to receive OTA HDTV is a good UHF/VHF antenna. People get different results depending on where they are located (and how far away they are from the nearest HDTV broadcast tower. The most recommended indoor antennas are:
Double bow tie from Radio shack
Silver Sensor antenna
Outdoor antennas are generally better, but more of a hassle.

If you look on the back you'll see a spot that says something like "expansion bay 2" or something like that. It's a place for a plug in module, which has the second coax input for an antenna. It's something you have to purchase, and I think retails for about $150. It's called an 8vsb module.
The 8VSB Tuner Cartridge is an optional accessory for the Model 6000 Series satellite receiver to deliver programming from off-air analog and digital HD broadcasts. Connects easily into rear panel port number 2. A digital broadcast signal strength meter can be displayed to assist in the fine-tuning of an off-air antenna and offers seamless integration when channeling up or down. Software is upgradeable via satellite.
