I've been told that Directv sends local channels to a limited local area. How do they limit the sat. signal to the broadcast area? If you were able to get Boston local in Boston and took the rec. to Omaha shouldn't it still be able to get Boston local? The signal from the sat. would have to carry all the "local" channels and be seperated out by something in the receiver (my thought). One thought I had was to use the zip code entered as part of set-up.
