HD/SD question

Bear with me for a moment here...

I currently have D* SD service with HD locals OTA (no LOS to 119 for SD locals).

I am having an HD upgrade on Friday where I will get my locals in HD from 99.

What will I need to watch my locals when they are not broadcast in HD? Will the 99 sat still broadcast the stream as my OTA would pick up or will I need to switch back and forth? Will my 99 HD locals be dark when my local stations are not broadcasting HD?

Does this question make sense?

They will be on the same channel #. If your receiver is set to show SD duplicates in the guide. The first channel 2 for example will be the HD channel and the second channel 2 will be the SD channel.

Also, there will always be shows on both channels.
