That's interesting. I'm in northwest L.A. What do you scan for in myth  
(i.e., is it broadcast 8-VSB or...)?

I recently got a new TV with a digital tuner and it picks up about 25  
channels (a third of them in Espanol), this using a $6 antenna. The  
quality difference I see is that some channels have compression artifacts  
(blocky images that freeze), but mostly if the picture comes through, it's  
about the same across the board (although HD makes a big difference
