Can I record OTA with satellite connections?

    I meant to say "without" satellite connections.

    I assume the answer is NO.

    I am wondering because I need to replace my roof and the satellite was installed directly on the roof. So while I am getting it mounted under the eaves I was hoping that I would not miss any important programs.

    But I guess I will.

    Can someone confirm this?

    Yes - you can even test this by just unplugging the Satellite connections and leave your OTA attached .... it will record - providing you still are paying your DVR "fee" (tax)... Not sure what it does to your Guide data though since I've not done this.

    Didn't they fix this in the last NR? I remember something in a CE on it. (I remember potential testing caused an uproar and debate on if CEs were a beta or not).
