    Here's my situation:
    1. I live in an apartment (outdoor is not happening).
    2. I live 60 miles north of L.A. (Ventura, CA.).
    3. I have a JVC 6000 receiver.
    I'm brand new to HDTV (signed up with Dish Network a week ago). The channels I get (HDHBO, HDSHO, & HDCBS) look awesome, but I'm already hungry for more!!!!!!!
    If I can get OTA, what equipment do you reccomend?
    Do I need some kind of "add-on" for my receiver?
    How much does the equipment cost and where could I find it?
    HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [​IMG]

    You may want to check out AVSFORUM.COM. The site has a lot more info on HDTV. While you are at it go to WWW.TITANTV.COM and check out the antenna selector.
    Sorry that I can't offer more advice but HDTV OTA is only a dream in my neck of the woods(Colorado Springs).

    Yes, go to TitanTV and check your area. I'm currently receiving OTA HDTV via a Radio Shack bow tie antenna sitting on top of my TV and get very good reception from a number of channels.

    Thanks for the reply fellas. I tried Titan and it gave me a big negative on the indoor antenna. [​IMG]
    BTW, I'm SOL for Discovery HD (at least until it appears on 148). [​IMG]
