AM-21 question

598 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  evan_s
Hello all,

I have question about the OTA capabilities of the am21.

I live in a small town (<50,000 pop) in Ohio and am far enough away from any "big" cities that I may not be able to pick up all 4 networks HD local OTA signal without putting up a big ass antenna.
I also cannot get any networks on the dish.

So is it possible for me to pay for the basic cable package my local cable system puts out and use this as my "OTA" signal and thereby have a "one HD DVR box" solution?

I have no Dtv equipment as of now but i had Dtv for about 3 years ending in '00

I plan on getting 2 hr21's for a 60'' and a 42'' HD tv's

Any help is appreciated

the process is pretty simple but may not work. Just call DirecTV and tell them you want to get waivers since they don't carry your locals and you can't receive them OTA. You may still be denied by your local affiliate but thats the process.
