I live in Houston and currently have DirecTV but only receive ABC and Fox in HD. I've been told (for years now) that the only way to get CBS and NBC is to use an off-air antennae. Let me note that I could care less if I get these chanels from "local" or if they come from New Jersey - I'd just like to be able to watch primetime TV on NBC and CBS in high-def. I tried the off-air antennae thing, and thought it was ridiculous. For on thing, I didn't enjoy having a contraption that looks like a spaceship sitting next to the TV. Putting it in an attic and running cbale etc was not an option. Just seemed like a pain. Now I have been told that for $200-$300 I can buy a new receiver that will allow me to get the other 2 networks that I am missing. However I am reading that there are alot of problems with that receiver. So the question is this - am I missing something? Everytime I call DirecTV I get a different answer on what my options are. I'm starting to wonder if another carrier is a better option. Is getting the 4 basic networks in HD so much to ask???
