You have summed up exactly how I feel about this. I don't want an antenna on my roof. The OTA tuner on my HR20 don't work that well with an indoor antenna. If they worked as good as my TV's tuners I'd be happy, but they don't. If DirecTV doesn't get my local HD by the end of next year, it will be time for me to move on. I really like my service from DirecTV, but I'm also tired of waiting for my locals in HD.
