I live in Jacksonville, FL and we just got local channels now on directv but I need the additional equipment (according to the website: Residents of the following areas have access to local channels with a DIRECTV Multi-Satellite System, which includes a special set-top receiver and an 18x24-inch, oval-shaped satellite dish) Does anyone use Directv local channels in the cities that require the multi-satellite system? Here they are: • Buffalo, NY • Grand Rapids, MI • Hartford, CT • Knoxville, TN • Las Vegas, NV • Norfolk, VA • Oklahoma City, OK • Providence, RI • New Orleans, LA Is this the same oval dish that picks up the HDTV satellite? Also, I will need another receiver instead of the one I have in order to use the multi-satellite system? So I can expect about 100 bucks up front? Are local channels even worth this much hassle? Heh. I use basic cable now. Is there a dramatic improvement in pic quality from cable for local channels? I heard they aren't digital and just analog converted to digital. I have a large projection tv so cable does look noticably worse than satellite (obviously) but would enjoy better quality. Any help would be much appreciated.
