Only 1 HDHR in the data closet, how can you live with that.. :-)

I recently went with an OTA antenna as the market next to ours did a
better job with syndicated stuff being in HD, more stations in HD (rather
than SD sub channels (CW) and the audio worked better.  However 2 of my
local channels now keep dropping out. I think I am getting multi path
errors as the signal is hitting the antenna at a 40 degree angle.  So I
use three tuners for OTA and one for ClearQAM, just for those channels. 
As luck would have it, they share a QAM mux, so I can multirecord off the
one tuner, and leave the other three for all the other OTA channels which
are all over the place frequency wise.

I posted a link a while back where a Silicondust employee is dropping a
bunch of HDHR on ebay for $50.  I bought my second one just after posting
it.  (it's the twin input cream one).
