My costs:

CM-2018 Antenna: $71
RCA TVPRAMP1R: $30
Ideal 4 way splitter: $9
RG6-Q cable/Connectors: $40
Cabling tools: $20

I've also ordered:
CM-3414: $33 to replace the splitter

So a grand total of:
$203

My Dish bill was $104/month so at the end of March, I will have already paid myself back plus some.

I did not include my Hulu subscription into the cost, as I had that before.

Its a one time Fee so even $500 will soon pay for itself.Too bad lots of folks are still unaware that OTA is mostly HD.Lots still think its all fuzzy and old technology.I personally spent a few hundred and lots of time but was fully worth it.

I'm just starting out, so far my cost is a few pennies. I took a paperclip, unbent it, and stuck one end in the cable/antenna input. I'm located in Kanata North (west-end suburb of Ottawa) and am located roughly half-way between the Camp Fortune transmission tower and the one in Manotick (about 15 miles from each). Got all the stations that TVFool report said I would get with an indoor antenna except for CJOH (it's the only one that is on VHF-Hi and I take it a paperclip is not the best for VHF reception). However taking the paperclip to the upstairs TV added CJOH. We're moving next month to Kanata South, which brings me a lot closer to the Manotick station (which transmits at a much lower power -- I wasn't getting any of those stations). I intend to build an 8-bat coat-hanger bowtie antenna and likely stick it up in the attic. Then add a tablo+drive, unless someone tells me there are better options for making a PVR. Is there a general Tablo forum here?

An 8-bay will likely be overkill. A 4-bay will be sufficient. Check out the Reception Results thread for Kanata to see what other members use in west Ottawa.
