Help me out. I see everyone wanting OTA, but when it is enabled, how will it work exactly (interface, menus, setup, etc...). I know what it is, but not sure what it really means for me.

thanks,

You'll just see the additional OTA channels in your program guide and will be able to record from them, that's about it. Only thing you'll have to do is have the HR20 scan for digital channels when first setting it up.

Seriously... it is not much longer.

As for how it will work... pretty much the same way the unit works now.
It will show up as more channels... everything else is used the same way.

The Setup... you will just go into the Ant&SAT setup, and walk through the wizards to get it setup.

When you think about it you will get many more considering the subchannels on each network. Only about 14 more days to wait until December 1.

OTA will be a nice early Christmas present.

Is this your standard "not much longer"? In Earl time, "soon" usually means tonight and "not much longer" usually means a couple of days.;) :D
Not this time.. :)

;) No, I don't have OTA active on either of my systems.

So can anyone recommend an Hi-Quality yet affordable OAT Antenna?
As referenced above, start with antennaweb.org. If that shows you don't need some huge outside antenna, you may want to start with BB, CC or RS. Start small give it a try, if it doesn't work take it back and move upward. I'm 16 miles from our towers and I use indoor $40 set top antennas.
