    Dish mount TV antennas

    Has anyone tried the Terk powered TV antennas that clip on to your dish for receiving local programming? How's the reception?

    I was wondering if anyone tried one of this to received HD broadcasts. I'm about 55 miles from Denver, and was looking for something that would work best.

      Eric,

      I have a friend in the metro Denver area using a "clip-on" antenna for OTA local broadcasts, and he's pleased with the results.

      Rob,

      Sorry but I think you're just a little too far away for anything short of a real antenna. And even that would be iffy. I realize the pic isn't as good, but what about the HDTV satellite feed. That might be your only option. Not cheap though considering the limited programming

        I get the satellite feed now. My impression is that upconverted movies don't look to good. When I watch a true HDTV OAR DD5.1, quality is about the same as a DVD. Sometimes you can see the compression, though sometimes the picture excels a DVD. Many times it depends on the lighting in a particular scene.

        I got my 8VSB tuner card and picked up a 5 foot long 'hdtv' antenna from best buy that is in the shape of a 2by4. The clip-on antenna actually looked like a second dish to me. You could gang-mount it, or mount it separately.

        I can get Fox fine, but its only 480p. I can't seem to get the 1080i stations, which is what I expected. This is with the antenna in my living room, not in the attic or outside. I'll prolly try that this weekend.
