    I've had the D* H20 for about a week now watching my Tampa HD locals. So...I get a phone call last night from the E* customer retention rep trying to talk me into switching back to Dish. He guaranteed me that D* put an antenna up on my roof and that I'm really getting the HD locals over the antenna and not the satellite. He said they would give me all new HD equipment and a big antenna if I switch back. Now...I've had a CM4228 and preamp for about a year and can get CBS most of the time and on a good day, if the clouds are in the right place, can get FOX and ABC to fade in and out once in awhile.

    Many a battle has been lost because of basic ignorance. Going the other direction, I heard an installer the other day saying that E* didn't offer HD locals. As of today, they officially offer 12 markets of HD locals.

    If there weren't any ignorant people, we'd have little to talk about.
