Question about switching from Shaw to OTA
I just got my DCT6412 up and running on Shaw cable and I am really impressed with the quality. The picture looks great on my Toshiba 26HF84 and the PVR works awesome.
I have heard that OTA signals are a big improvement over sat and cable signals because of they are uncompressed. I am just wondering how big the difference would be in picture quality compared to Shaw. On my relatively small TV (26"), do you think it would be worth the hassle of hooking up an antenna?
The pros of switching over would be the PQ increase and the channel selection. I would get channels that I cant get with Shaw like FOX, UPN, the WB, CBC, CTV etc.
The negative side is that my 6412 will not be compatible and I will have to buy a new PVR/tuner.
Right now I am satisfied with the signal quality I am recieving (Smart Travels blows me away) but I cant help thinking that I am missing out on something better.
