    I'm looking to receive HDTV in my home. I will have the second dish installed (Dish Network) to receive HBO & Showtime.
    What do I need for OTA signals?? I live in the NYC broadcasting area.
    I know that I need an antenna and it will be installed in the attic, but do I also need a module to rotate the antenna to the appropriate position when I change channels??
    Does the 6000 receiver control the rotation??
    Is it better to install a monster size antenna in the attic or a much smaller unit on the satellite stalk?
    Thanks,
    Regards,
    Boris

    For OTA signals, you need an 8VSB module that plugs in the back of the 6000 receiver. The antenna plugs into the module. Trywww.antennaweb.org for a starting point in choosing an antenna. The 6000 has not rotation controls.
