It's been a while since I have frequented this forum and I wanted to get caught up in a hurry. Since reading all of the posts with information important to me is near impossible, I think I'll just post my questions/config...

I have a 3 LNB dish, DirecTivo (SD) connected to my Sony HDTV and 2 regular SD boxes to non-HD TVs.

I've been jonesing for HD on my HDTV for awhile now, but unable to pick up OTA HD no matter what I do...quite frustrating.

I'm also a severe hater of Comcast and would like to avoid using them if possible.

My requirements:

1. HD locals, not HDLite or any other junk (I'm in Philly suburb)
2. HD ESPN, HBO, TNT, etc...
3. HD DVR, dual tuner or whatever DirecTV homegrown box is these days
4. SD Tivo (using my current box) to one of my old TVs
5. Regular SD DirecTV to my third TV
6. Cost of less then $100/month

It has gotten to the point that DirecTV is no longer worth the savings in money, as the features available from DTV simply don't cut it. Can I get the above config from DTV for that price? If not, I fear I'm going to make a move to the darkside..

Any ideas?

Seems you already have the answer you seek; right? Or did I misunderstand that statement?
