Folks, Just had my high-def hooked up over the weekend, starting to sink my teeth into it and the possibilities. Background: I live in NY and have DirecTV, already subscribed to the local channels and just upgraded to the high-def programming package ($10.99) for the time being. For the record, I live in an apartment, and hooking up the off-air antenna (with DirecTV) would be prohibitive, since the pizza dish would not fit on my porch... so we left it at the regular hd dish. Interesting point from the technician- he told me that the off-air antenna is useless and wouldn't matter, since after 8 pm the local channels in high-def would be available anyway somewhere out there if you don't have the off-air antenna hooked up. Last night, tooled around... found channel 80 (was the CBS high-def channel, which I picked up (wow!)). Wondering if anyone else is in my boat, and where the other local channels are out there in high-def???? (in NY of course). Sorry if this is a confusing question, I'm a newbie to the high-def world and am short on knowledge right now!
