Thanks for the feedback on Sat VS Digital cable. The guy that installed the cable didn't know and I almost cancelled the cable as soon as I disconnected the Sat and he hooked up the cable.
I decided to keep cable for 2 reasons only:
-I live in an apt complex and have the dish illegally mounted on the outside wall.
-It gets additional stations that DirecTV has.

Thanks again

My next challenge is to wrestle with the installation of A RePlay TV Digital video recorder that will be delivered today.
