    I've got a slight dilema. I would like to try and receive OTA HDTV but don't know which STB I should get. It seems most of the STBs from Toshiba, Sony, etc all do DirectTV but I am currently a Dish Network subscriber. I know it may be a moot point in a few months but what should I do now. If I go with a STB that does Direct TV, I can't use it to receive sat HD signals. If I go with Dish Network, I might be buying a box that will be obsolete. Since DirectTV has already made progress with equipment vendors to include DirectTV decoders in their STBs it seems likely that the merged company will want to leverage that. Anyone have a thought? I guess this means I should wait but for how long?
