For you folks with a 722 Dish DVR there is an interesting thing that
happens if you install the Over The Air adapter. Now you can record 3
shows at once, one over the air and one from each of the satellite
tuners. Not bad for $30 (Ebay)
I really did it because they don't support all of the sub channels on
the satellite feed.
I have a pretty simple antenna and it reports signal strength from 75
to 99 from stations about 25 miles away.

I don't really watch much network TV so just having the antenna won't
work for me. I would miss the stuff that is only on cable/sat.
I am looking forward to the day that the whole "network" cabal gives
way to direct distribution on the internet. I already have a PC
connected to my TV and I am ready to go. I do watch HBO-Go, Hulu etc
now but the possibilities are endless once content providers decide
they don't need the networks and cable companies anymore.

I have two DVRs on my DISH installation in my "old" house. DISH has
always been a PITA, so I switched to DirectTV in the new house. The
DVR is far superior (DirectTV is fat better, also) and it'll run
something like 5 remote TVs, each (HD model) accessing the DVR disk.
Probably 60% of what we watch is "cable".
Just what we need to do; strangle the Internet with video.

I used to think that too but the pipe seems to be able to handle
everything we can throw at it. The future is going toward bandwidth

reduced to bandwidth providers. When everyone gets fiber to the home
the sky will be the limit.. They may just be metering terabytes like
they meter kilowatts and you buy content directly from the provider.
