Just finished downloading, rebooting and guess what?

OTA is finally here. Setting up now, hope to have some recordings to test later today. Hope to hear from east coasters.

I take full credit for my call last night to D* telling them I need OTA NOW!

-Advanced Guide Integration (pulled from D* it appears as I did not have OTA connected and channels came down based on Zip Code)

-8VSB tuners seem to be very good, best I've seen

-Quality of OTA over MPEG4 in LA Market seems to be better (your mileage may vary based on size of display, etc)

Pictures attached

So far so good. All channels locking on above 80%. This is the best 8vsb receiver D* has had. I've got a dedicated rooftp UHF antenna with about 150ft run, an a few splits, and still a strong signal.

Comparing the picture MPEG4 to OTA on KNBC, OTA looks better, which is consistent with what I've seen with my TV's OTA tuner.

This is just great, time to retool season passes, hopefully this will be an end to audio dropouts on MPEG4 channels.

(Yes there are more HD channels available via OTA in Los Angeles, nothing too significant though..KCAL, WB...)

Earl never missed this, this is what he has been saying all along. The OTA complaint might be a moot point in the very near future.
