Will the new mpeg-4 receivers and 5-LNB dish provide any additional HD content over the current mpeg-2 and 3-LNB dish, other than HD locals of course? I have an HDTivo, and get all of my locals OTA. Unless D* is going to put some new HD content on the new satellites over mpeg-4 (new meaning something other than what I can already get OTA and via my HR-250 on the mpeg-2 satellites), I don't really see any point in the conversion. Bigger dish (WAF problems), no Tivo, etc. Am I missing something or is there really no benefit to the change for those of us who can get their locals OTA?
