One of these other threads stated that a new HD receiver needs a 95 or higher signal to activate it for locals. I find that hard to believe. I've got trees that bring my SD receivers down to the upper 70s to the lower 80s on many of my local channels now that the trees have blossomed. Am I gonna have to go out and cut branches or what in order to upgrade to HD? Moving the dish is not an option. I figured that as long as I get a reasonable signal, which could be anything from 50 on up, and I have a picture, that was all I needed.
