So, if DirecTV doesn't work. How about Dish? I'm actually Interested  
in getting HD soon also, and I live in the land of no cable lines, so  
it's the Dish, DirecTV(my current system) or OverTheAir (fortunately  
I am in a GOOD location for regular airwaves, on the top of a hill,  
but that limits the channels available, as I'm still far from  
Sacramento, and there's not a lot of local broadcast stations)
