    I'm not sure what you're asking but when I have the choice of either recording from the Satellite locals or the OTA locals, I use the OTA locals. They seem to have much less problems than the Satellite locals.

    If you don not subscribe to locals (HD orSD) you do not get guide info. Also, you can olny record one local at a time with OTA only. Even if I could only get SD locals from Dish I woul subscribe to them, and use the OTA for HD locals.

    As someone stated, you must keep your SAT local subscription in order to have guide data for the OTA locals.
    That said, I too always use the OTA as my primary, especially when viewing live sporting events. Even with MPGG4, a over-air signal will always be better than a compressed signal. The difference is not tremendous, but if you Pause and PiP them side-by-side, its easily noticed, especially HD.

    Since my Dish providedlocals pretty much suck, record using my OTA antenna whenever possible. No tearing and flashing green screens on OTA. I keep my Dish locals for the EPG data on my OTA's.
