After reading all the posts about locals in HD on the Eastern Arc, I decided to do a chat yesterday morning with Dish Tech. I was informed that yes, if I switched to the Eastern Arc and upgraded one of my old receivers, I would indeed get my locals in HD. So I set up a service call for Friday. Last night, I had the feeling something wasn't right. So I did another chat with Dish tech with someone else. I quickly learned that was not correct and they are not available in HD in my area at all so we cancelled the service call. Not sure what to make of this. Was the first Tech lying thru her teeth or just that completely uninformed? Needless to say, I am disappointed in the whole thing as I was pretty jacked up that I thought I was finally getting them in HD....Guess not.
