Dandy. I wish they would work on getting the markets they've already rolled out working correctly.

I live in Denver, and upgraded to the H20 before the rebate expired simply because I didn't want to have to pay $200 to lease it when I could get own it for free. I really have no intention of bending over backward to get my locals in MPEG 4, which would involve not only paying $99 for the new dish, but re-routing all of my sat cable because my attic mount antenna is diplexed into the each of them. I get all my stations OTA, and D* hasn't even come to an agreement with our local NBC affilliate. Why would I do away with a system that works well just to get my locals from a different, downgraded, source that won't carry all of the channels?

The only way that I'll upgrade to a new dish is if they come out with the slimline AND they offer new nationals in MPEG 4. Until then, why sweat it? I just wish D* would give me a reason to spend more money. :)
