    I want to get myself "ready" for HD thru D*, but for now I just want to get a regular receiver (HD later when its cheaper). So, what kind of dish do I need now so I can use it later for HD things? I am wondering too, I heard there is a dish that will act as an antenna for OTA stuff as well......Is this then integrated into my satellite channels? Also, with the right dish and eventually the HD-receiver, can I get OTA HDTV from my local channels also??

    Thanks for the info....

    Also, if you buy your Direct tv system from Blockbuster make sure you order the "Para Todos" package. This is the Spanish programming package. If you order the "Para Todos" package they'll give you the oval dish you'll need for hdtv. You don't have to subscribe to the Spanish channels, this is just a free way to get the right dish.
