I tried to search for the Information, but couldnt find it anywhere..Is there any way of knowing when Cleveland HD Locals will come?..I am looking to get a HDTV with my income tax and want to start getting Dish HD soon. I have a 522 currently and would like to upgrade to a 622. I know Dish has ample HD channels without the locals but it would be nice to get the locals at the same time. Also, how easy would it be to integrate a OTA antenna if need be..Thanks for any insight..

You just hook it (UHF only needed) to the 622 instead.
I'm ignoring Cleveland in 17 states and assuming he is OH. VHF is needed as well as UHF. NBC uses channel 2 for 3.1 and CBS uses channel 10 for 19.1, or so sayeth www.antennaweb.org.

But I can't really tell what he is asking by "integrate a OTA antenna". Likely just what you already answered. I'd probably split the OTA antenna to feed the 622, the new HDTV (most come with ATSC tuners) and one other to be combined with the Home Dist output to send to the rest of the house. If "integrate" means bring the OTA signal into the house with the DISH lnb signal, that's easy with diplexers.

No clue when Cleveland will get Sat HD locals.

A couple of months ago Dish started an offer for low-cost, installed antennas for "certain" cities. Cleveland is one of those cities.... If Dish is making arrangements like this, that is, provide a way for customers to receive digital/HD channels via OTA vs receive them via satellite, what conclusion can one draw ??
