    I have few questions about HDTV?

    I'm about to purchase an HDTV tv. At first, I didn't plan on getting HD for a little while, but the more and more I see it, the more and more I want it (especially for sports).

    Here are my questions. If I were to get HD through DirecTV, would I get my locals in HD using their oval antenna or do you still have to use another antenna? I thought about just getting a STB to get locals OTA but for the price of one of those boxes, I could just about get a Huges e-86. Wouldn't this be the better route to go?

    Also, I haven't seen any information for HD through Comcast in my area. Any Dallas people happen to know when and if we will get it?

    One more time, is there anything else I need to budget for besides:

    -DirecTV HD Receiver
    -Oval Antenna
    -Misc. Cables

    or

    -STB
    -RadioShack Antenna
    -Misc. Cables

    Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    Thanks guys!!

    John, thanks for the reply.

    So does your regular antenna go through your Samsung box or does it go straight to your tv because you have an HD built in tv?

    No

    The TV is a HDTV Ready Mistu, not built it.

    The ANT connection goes to the Samsung box
