First off, let me say thanks for making this such a great site! A friend of mine rescued me from AR and showed me this site about a month ago. I feel like I have learned more in my one month of following this site than in the past few years on AR. Now for my dilemna...I will soon be graduating from college in Maine and moving to work in the Cincinnati area. Along with this newfound employment will come paychecks, which lead to HT upgrades. My soon to be wife is actually pretty approving of my HT endeavors, but everything major needs to meet her approval Our living room will be approx. 14' x 16', which is about the size of my entire dorm room now! I think I will upgrade from my trusty 27" Sony to the HD ready Mitsu 46807 and a yet to be determined HD receiver. Where my question comes in is on how to get the most HD programming possible while keeping the wife happy. I have gotten approval for DirecTV's Total Choice Package, but this doesn't give me the HD HBO (couldn't sell the extra $18/mo.) so while the digital signal will be nice, still no HD. Does anyone know if it's possible to add this HBO channel for a nominal monthly fee? Also, there is an option to get local stations via DirecTV (ABC/NBC/CBS/Fox/PBS). Is this stuff HD? I know that you can receive HD programming from these networks OTA, but how about via DirecTV? Putting an antenna on the roof isn't an option because I will be living in an apartment complex. Sorry for being so long winded! I know these are the kinds of dumb questions people hate to answer, but thanks for any help/advice offered!
