    I tried doing a search for this but came up unsuccessful. My question is this: If I get the parabolic sattelite, the DirecTV HD receiver and an HD-ready television will I still need to get an antenna to receive local OTA HD signals or will everything go through the HD receiver? I just want to get an idea of what I need and where my budget needs to be set at. Thanks!

    You still need an antenna for OTA HD. The HD receiver has inputs for both satellite and antenna. Most people are successful with the Radio Shack Double Bow Tie antenna.
