I would also like to hear how other people's HD OTA reception is.
I don't have OTA HDTV yet(I'm getting one for christmas) and I'm wondering what to expect.
Since OTA HDTV is almost all or nothing with signal strength, I'm wondering if there is a formula that says "if you are up to 'x' miles away from the transmission tower for perfect SD transmisson, then you can get perfect HD transmission up to 'y' miles."
There might be too many issues for a direct connection between HD and SD signals(i.e. HD signals may be weakened more by tall trees than SD signals)
Does any of that make any sense?
In my case AWSOME. I have the dish 811 system and with a cheap outside antenna I receive 18 over the air digital channels 9 in hi-def I live in San Jose Ca and about 60 miles from San Francisco. I notice when I do an anolog scan those same stations look terrible snow ghosts etc. If I turn my antenna (no rotor) I even pick up K.C.R.A in sacremento ca. The reason I ask you folks is I have heard people say that there over the air digital reception was terrible anyway MARRY XMAS AND A HAPPY HOLIDAY TO YOU ALL and may you enjoy years of awsome hi-def home theater STEWART NORRIE
