So far so good. I am a new Dish customer so I got the great deal of $49.99 with credit of $49.99 on bill and 3 free months of HBO SHO. Haven't noticed any dark picture as some have seen. I did loose sound earlier but a hard reboot fixed it. Haven't hooked up digital output as of yet as I need to buy a new cable and a switch to go between dvd player and 811. Can't wait til Sunday Night Football in HDTV!! Don't have an antenna up for OTA but am contemplating it. I am about 55 miles from the towers and am kind of apprehensive about it. Anyone this far away with OTA Digital locals????
