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.


Good luck!

It's ok, we were all newbies once. http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif


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.
