Why aren't you getting HD locals on your other 2 receivers? Hopefully you'll be ok with the lower PQ.


Because I don't want to buy an AM21 for each receiver. As far as the PQ goes I will just bow to your superior discerning eye and expertise on the matter.

Is it possible for anyone to post in this thread without you trying to disparage them for wanting HD locals? Give it a rest.

When I signed up for D* nearly 5 years ago I was told that we'd have HD locals "very soon." LOL

The Lansing market stinks. The thing that gets me the most worked up is that I live within spitting distance of the county line and could get Grand Rapids locals, which have been HD for a long time.

Just not having to deal with OTA for HD will be nice.

Did the Lansing locals recently switch to a different satellite? Normally I don't get a signal on the 119 sat because of a tree. The signal is still at zero but I am getting my locals now.
