    Can i add local HD channels to my Directv lineeup (without HD reciever) using my TV HD tuner?
    I have a sony tv with HD tuner
    I can receive all local HD channels by connecting my antenna
    directly to the TV.
    My directv reciever is only DVR and cannot reciever HD channels

    My question is there any way to add these local HD channels to my directv lineup? If my TV already has the tuner can I combine signals or something so that the HD locals will show in the guide?

    Why does Directv have so much more HD channels than Cable companies?
    I have HD with my cable company(Brighthouse) and they dont have as much HD channels as Directv, I’m just looking at some simple channels too, like Spike tv etc, which i have on regular quality. The point im trying to make is that if its on regular quality and HD quality why am i not getting it from my cable company

    • Stephen M says:

      Short of going to fiber optics, those cables in the ground have a limited bandwidth and even going to fiber is a costly change because cable companies have thousands of miles of the old cable in the ground. Just imagine the cost of and effort required to tear up streets to upgrade.

    Directv HD channels with an off-air antenna?
    With a standard directv dish and receiver, can I use and off-air antenna to pick up local HD channels?
    I have a HD TV, do I still need to get the HD receiver and the HD off-air antenna? But I can get local HD without the use of a HD Dish?

      If you want to just pick up only the local channels in hi def in your area …… all you need is your HDTV and a set of rabbit ears.

    If I get a Directv HD reciever without the HD channels will I still be able to get 1080i picture?
    I am getting an HD Dish installed tomorrow. I am getting my parent’s HD reciever, that is not old at all, installed onto my Tv. On the front of it there is a button where it lets me choose between 480i, 480p, 720p, and 1080i.. Will all of my channels at least be 720p without me ordering the HD channels?

    • nobody says:

      if you call directv to activate an hd receiver, they will charge you for the hd channels, regardless, and if your tv is 1080i capable, you will get that picture quality
