    Even though i'm only 10 miles from downtown atlanta, i have tried three indoor antennas (radio shack bowtie, two powered uhf/vhf) and still all i can get is NBC.

    I have a directv HDTV receiver built in to my TV - i was going to hold off on activating it because i already have directivo units and i would only be getting two additional HD channels, but if the terk OTA satellite hook-on for dishes will work, i'm contemplating going ahead and getting the oval dish for Directv HD and the Terk add-on antenna. Will this work nearly as good as some of the larger (30" across) old-style outdoor tv antennas? What i'm seeing of the "real" HD on NBC is amazing (Leno, sports) and want all my digital channels ASAP.

    The reason i want the hook-on antenna is because i don't want to have a dish and a TV antenna on top of my smallish house.

    thanks

    Try www.antennaweb.org. They will tell you what kind of antenna to use and where to point it, based on your address. Perhaps you can translate their antenna recommendation to the add-on you are contemplating.
