    Wow, this stuff is great! Clouds up and the thing can't recieve the Sat. signal! Just when you need TV the most, this crap won't work. I wish I could go back to C-Band!
    Anyway, my wonderful reciever (when it works) in sat. mode works OK, but when I switch over to the local ant., I can't get a picture. The dealer said, "of course you're not gonna get a picture, you have to turn it (the reciever) off!" Now why didn't I think of that!
    Any sugestions on what to do? I have only 1 cable at the TV with the sat. and local ant. combined outside w/ diplexers?
    Bought a ch. 4 signal combiner today, but I only have the 1 cable in the house.
    Any Ideas on how to deal with this junk?
    Opps, it's fixin to rain.....

    Hey Meaux, Have you checked to see if Dish offers the locals in Houston. They offer them over here in Loganville, Ga. (outside Atlanta). They are $4.99 mo. extra but are worth it.
