All the Directv HD set-top-boxes can also receive OTA HD/DTV channels when they're hooked up to the proper antenna as well as your satellite dish. Of course, OTA reception depends on your proximity to the transmission towers and if you've got any major obstructions blocking the signals. If you're worried about the signal strength of your OTA channels, the newer STBs like the Sony, its Zenith counterpart and the Samsung are said to have more sensitive OTA tuners. If you aren't in a fringe reception area, you may also be just fine with one of the older, less expensive STBs like the Hughes E86. I've got mine hooked up to a Zenith Silver Sensor indoor UHF antenna and it does a great job, but YMMV.
