bagleyb, is the ABC station you receive in the MPEG 4? or is it the east coast feed?
I receive ABC, CBS and FOX (MPEG 2) in HD from the east coast feed. (grandfathered in), I have to rely on an antenna for NBC, whis is good at times, but mostly it is not.

I am in the OKC market. DTV has told me it will be July-Aug before they are turned on. Tulsa might be different since there is a big call center there. HD locals may appear there (Tulsa), before OKC, but that is just speculation. If you goto D* website it specifically lists Tulsa as one area to come next. Does next mean July-August who knows?

No, I don't have any waivers, have to rely on OTA. ABC in Tulsa is VHF and the is not part of the main antenna farm. There are some suggestions on hdtvok.com about using a jointenna, but that hasn't worked for me. If I could get ABC OTA, I wouldn't care too much about getting HD LiL, but with the ABC situation here (I hear OKC has the same issues) I need HD LiL to get ABC reliably.

Thank you and do not take this wrong, but I won't believe it till I see it!
Luckily I get all my locals in HD off my OTA!

What do you use to get your locals? HR20? 10-250? ATSC tuner in the TV? Just curious to see how the HR20 is doing to pick up the OKC HD locals???

I've got the 10-250 and live north of Waterloo Rd. near I-35 and get everything pretty good except for 52-1 KSBI...don't really need that though...

Yup, early Jan, 2007. And I am not even going to get an hd or hddvr receiver until the hd locals come out, I am so not even getting an off air antenna - too much of a hassle for the house I live in. But perhaps I should get an actual hd tv first right :D:D:D

Sorry Cisco,
I live in Broken Arrow, use a HR20-700, and have my attic antenna split to my Elite 1140HD and HR20. I get NBC,CBS,ABC, FOX, and several other stations I will never watch very clear on my OTA. The Santa Software was an early gift to utilize the HR20. Due to the storms here in Tulssa, an antenna was a must for me!

That is what I was told as well two or three weeks ago. I emailed them yesterday so I should get some sort of a response tomorrow. I am getting the new dish installed on Saturday so it would be nice if they got lit up in short order.

I use the HR-20 in Enid and pick up all the OKC stations just fine. KOCO is a bit spotty depending on the weather but it works 98% of the time. All the other channels are rock solid with no problems. I get 100% signal on 4-1 and 25-1 even at 63 miles.

I live near Kelly and 15th in Edmond - we get our locals via OTA installed by Directv. We are currently using D10 and H20 receivers. HR20 (with ATSC activated) is scheduled to be installed on 2/14/2007.
