I live orange county, California, I read of some new installs getting Hd equipment when they ordered SD because they live in an mpeg4 only area. How do I find out where mpeg 4 areas are and is southern California an Hd only area?
the only markets that fall under this category are ones where there are no SD versions of the Big 4 Networks. On the D* site search "locals" and plug in the zip. If it shows channels under both the SD & HD column (same channels) you are not in a MPEG4 market
