You might also want to check out the online sites that help you know what
type of antenna you need and which way to point it.
http://www.antennaweb.org and http://www.tvfool.com/ are often recommended.
I went OTA last year and haven't regretted it. I have it somewhat easy for
OTA compared to many though, ~15miles from the transmitters, clear LOS. With
a DB4 on the roof, the higher power stations max out the signal strength and
quality test in my HDHomeRun.

DTV keeps trying to get me to sign up again, but without a decent option for
Myth, I'm not interested. The HD-PVR is ok, but it can't tune directly and I
don't want to have to mess with IR or Firewire right now. Not to mention
that an HD-PVR costs more for a single tuner than an HDHR does, and the HDHR
is far more flexible with its network connection vs USB.
