Yeah I agree PTAT is a good feature.But paying that $10/mo for poor resolution locals is not. Which is why I was looking at OTA.
If the OTA chanels match the Dish channels, PTAT will work on the OTA channel as well, as long as you're subscribed to the Dish channel as well. The OTA channels do not record them all with one tuner like the Dish locals do.
And here's another reason I'm keeping the Dish locals even though I have the dual OTA tuner and antenna. I often record more than two simultaneous or overlapping network shows. Two tuners is not enough.
