Is this easy to do? Or do I need to hook it directly to my tv? Can I DVR OTA locals? Will the Directv installation guy help me out? Thanks!

Also, another thing you can do is SPLIT your OTA line and run one into the DVR and the other into your TV tuner.
Assuming you get hd locals from Directv, why would you split the ota line? If your signals are marginal at all, you may not have enough signal strength at either tuner.
During periods of rain fade, I use the OTA feed to my television for the local channels, primarily during primetime, and to check the weather sub-channels.
To each his own!
When Toledo HD finally gets turned on, I will still be getting them from my OTA set up, why pay extra money for something that you already get for free ?
Locals are included in your package, you won't be paying extra for them. You're already "paying" for them basically.
