So my 1st question is What SD channels will I get?
2nd question is What HD stations will my H20 get?
Last question, I will have cable internet so I will be dropping my home phone all together. Will this effect my Tivo?

Zip is 15010

Since I am on the edge of the DMA I hope the spot beam will not be a issue.

Movers connection said the spot beam and phone issues were OK.

Not sure how far you are away from Pitt, but you could also try aiming toward Youngstown, OH depending on distance.

Antenna web shows me in a DEAD zone for OTA HD

I will be at the bottom of a valley surrounded by trees.

With the mpeg 4 HD I am not even going to mess with OTA.

I cant believe I will get 9 SD stations and not need the second dish!!!

not that I "condone" this but I live on the border of PA/WV and I "moved" to PA since it's like 3 miles away and I got all of the pittsburgh locals. Here where I live I get no locals. Of course now I believe you can no longer "move" as I believe they have the spotbeams fine tuned so that they don't go over the dma lines anymore. I am back to where I belong now as I had to order so new equipment and got an antenna installed plus an hd receiver installed.

I envy you guys in those numerous and small DMAs, you must be able to use a rotor to get all kinds of OTA. Out in Phoenix just one! Boo.

I would think the spot beam would have to go over the line more than 3 miles or people on the other side at the edge of the state line would run into los of siginal issues.
