Dish doesn't provide HD locals for the Indy DMA currently. But you can pick them up w/ an antenna and if you plug that into the back of your 612/622/722 receiver it gives you a third tuner you can use w/ your DVr, it's pretty cool actually. Where I live I get channels from Indy, Muncie, Ft Wayne and sometimes Lafayette w/ my antenna and let me tell you that third tuner comes in handy sometimes!Firefighter said:So there are NO local HD channels in Indy ? I was thinking of switching for D* to Dish.... this would make a big difference on whether I switch or not.
For what its worth (and it well may not be true), a local (Cincinnati) dealer told me that the HD channels for Indy as well as a lot of Ohio cities, like Dayton, Columbus, and Cincinnati and others will be on the 77 degree satellite (eastern arc) "next spring". He said he got that information from his distributer. It sounds like the rumor mill is alive and well in our area.tsmacro said:Since Indy wasn't included in any of the uplinks for Eastern Arc at 61.5 my bet is that'll probably end up on 129 and not until they get the new satellite up there to replace the old one, which should happen near the end of this year or beginning of next.
