I just want to throw in my 2 cents. I am just starting my foray into HD. I
purchased an HDHR on Fri and it arrived on Tuesday. I hooked it up last
night to an OTA antenna (currently, I'm living out in the country in Central
Illinois). I was able to pick up my local FOX affiliate with no problems.
I was playing it over my network to an XP laptop I have (yes I know it's
WinBlowz but I had it laying around and couldn't find directions to do the
same setup with VLC on linux). It was a beautiful site to see. Now I just
need to climb up the antenna mast and move the antenna to face west so I can
get all the other channels (NBC for Heroes, ABC for Lost, and CBS so I can
mock Jericho when it comes back). Hopefully, I won't die in the attempt.
Getting back OT, the HDHR was _crazy easy_ to setup. After I get the
antenna pointed the right way, then I'll be upgrading Myth. From my limited
experience, the HDHR "just works". Good luck!
