I was wondering about the PQ of the new Philly HD locals. I've been a D* customer for about 10 years. I use Comcast for my ISP, as well as for digital cable, here in the Bensalem, Pa area. My Comcast HD picture quality is amazing. I receive the following channels;

Comcast Sports Net HD - Channel 200
Espn HD - Channel 202
TNT HD - 204
Discovery HD Theater - 205
INHD - 206
INHD 2 - 207

Plus all locals from CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX, PBS, WB & UPN

Is it worth it to upgrade my D*?

Hi if you love the Flyers, Sixers and Phillies, its probably not worth your time. You won't get Comcast Sports net on D.

If PQ is ok, stay where you are. pbs/upn/wb/tnt aren't on Directv HD. If I didn't have reservations about the moxi box for my local cable co, i'd probably be there now. Also i'm not sure how their pic is compared to my OTA.
