can't get my hd locals

well 3rd installer came out today and said due to the position of my house and the location of the towers, i will not be able to get any hd locals. does this qualify me for waivers? i do not want to go to time warner but this may be the final straw... with tivo leaving directv i might as well learn the time warner dvr and get the calbe phone. cable, and internet service package...

its been a great run directv - maybe i'll be back someday

Waivers are based on Zip Code and the area you live in. As I recall, I had to request the waiver(s) from D* - who in turn mailed me a card after applying me for the local waivers. I think there's a web site some place that you can enter your location and they'l tell you what Grade you'll receive. The card indicated what "grade" of signal I was expected to receive -- a Grade of A or B. All of my ocals came in as Grade B. However, only FOX (KTVU) did not grant me the waiver.

The "towers".... So I am assuming that you are trying to get things via OTA...

Not knowing the geography of your area, it is hard to say if he was right or wrong.

I would recommend heading over to www.avsforum.com in the Local HDTV section, and see what people in your area are doing for OTA reception.
