And 6 months from now, a transformer blows up in your neighborhood and fries your receivers, or a car crashes into a pole, or a lightning strike; whatever. DirecTV happily sends you replacements: an H23 and an HR23, which are the current receivers at the time. Both use wideband tuners and no BBCs, meaning there is satellite data on the same frequencies your OTA signals use now. At that point, diplexing is no longer possible.

Just something to keep in mind.


I'm certainly aware of that, but I'm also sure that I can cross that bridge when I come to it. Pulling another coax won't be any more difficult then than it is now.

Well my wife checked our new D* bill and discovered that they were charging us for HD and so I called them.. We don't own an HD tv.. ( isn't HD free for the first three months?) So I asked them about what they could do for me about the loss of the antenna.. since they gave me HD 23-600's for receivers ..

and tonight they made it good.. very very good. good enough to say that I don't want to tell you how good it was.. I never call them and I have been with them for over six years.. I pay my bill and I don't complain..

Lets just say that tomorrow I will be coming straight home from church.. and I under stand that there are channel numbers above 600...


plus I didn't have to change my programming..


it really does pay to be nice on the phone all the time.. very very much so..

Are you getting channels above 600 you did not get with other receivers? You can add HD extra pack for 3 months free and watch on your non-HD tv's along with all the HD channels plus you get Dolby Digital audio on those. Then just run a separtate coax wire from ota antenna to whichever receivers have ota built in or add the am-21's to the ones that don't. But not having HD-TV's I don't see OTA being a priority and of course all analog channels will be gone by FEB.

My guess is that bjlc will be watching too much football to worry about the hd extra pack.
