Now that more of us have both wings (61.5 & 148), has anyone been successful in getting both the East AND West feeds of CBS-HD?

I've tried twice now to get them, and no joy.

I'd love to get ANY of the CBS-HD's. I just lost my 6412 because it just costs too darned much to keep the pig. I'm now in a situation with the 921 only having 1 OTA tuner, finding my favorite primetime shows conflict. If I get CBS-HD I could DVR CBS and NBC while watching NBA playoffs.
Now are there any prerequisites for those CBS HD's? D* grants them to those areas with O&O and respective waivers from stations that are not. What are they for E*?

I get both on E* and D*... Requested E* from engineer of the "local" when I got my 6000u and got them... On D* I had distants(pre 99) so when I got an Hd receiver they turned both on also (along with nbc and fox east and west hd's)

I am only something like 19 mile from my CBS tower and pick it up no problem. Actually most of the stations have their towers on the same piece of land. I sometimes drop ABC and NBC for a few seconds every once in a while. My OTA antenna is in my attic - maybe I will move it outside cause I've read that you get a 50% loss in signal in the attic.
