The first D* csr I spoke with today about moving to a small west TX town told me that in terms of local channels my destination zip code (79830) D* can provide me only ABC, FOX, PBS and some lesser crap -- but not NBC and CBS. He said I was simply SOL with respect to these channels. I fainted and the line went dead. Then I found a link to DirecTV DNS Eligibility that lets you look up an address to check DNS eligibilty. It said that Standard DNS is "Not available because DIRECTV offers local network programming in your area" but that it's eligible for HD DNS. Does this mean that if I order HD equipment and service that I will be able to receive ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS and FOX through the HD receivers? I called and spoke to another csr who basically agreed with my findings but said that I'd need to pay $2/mo for CBS and NBC so that I could get them and the others via HD (of course by paying $10/mo for HD service). Does this sound right? Lastly, I've noticed numerous posts -- most notably this thread about various issues with receiving local or DNS -- so I wonder if I can expect similar forced changes or cancellations of my ability to receive ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX and PBS?
