I have been a D* customer since 1995 and have had DNS since then. I live in an area where D* does not offer Locals and we only have NBC that is close enough for my 8' directional antenna. D* is not going to provide locals any time some in our area. Now if I were 20 miles south of here I would be in a LOCAL area and I would be happy to get the locals. I am thinking about moving to HD but not sure if I have a compelling reason at this time. Well I do but my wife is not sure. My question revolves around DNS stations on the 380s after the analog goes away? I believe today they are MPEG2 conversions of the analog feeds. Do you think they will continue to provide some form of those feeds either the SD or some converted version of the HD feeds? We currently have both the East and West feeds and use them for recording prime time network programming. Looking at other threads I see HD DNS service seems to be different in that they either provide the East or West cost feeds. Any help would be appreciated.
