Well believe it or not there is nowhere on my property I can site
the dish - too many _at_#$%^&&* trees on the south side. Tall ones too.
I'd still need cable for local channels.

Most of all, I like my video artifact-free, and MPEG1 compressed DSS
does not cut it. Besides, I like to watch TV when it rains, too :)

For $900 I'd rather buy a pile of LDs and get an even better picture
