Feel free to share how many channels you are pulling in. For both converter box users, and people who have a tv with a built in tuner, also, how are you liking DTV so far?

Right now I am recieving on both analog and digital band -

2 - WGBH-TV (PBS) analog
4.1 - WBZ-DT (CBS) digital - 72% signal strength
5.1 - WCVB-DT (ABC) digital - 52% signal strength
7.1 - WHDH-HD (NBC) digital - 55% signal strength
7.2 - WHDH-SD (This-TV) digital - 52% signal strength
9 - WMUR-TV (ABC) analog
11 - WENH-TV (PBS) analog
21 - WPBX-TV (ION-north) analog
38 - WSBK-TV (independent) analog
44 - WGBX-TV (PBS) analog
44.1 - WGBX-SD (PBS) digital 56% signal strength
44.2 - WGBX-SD (World) 56% signal strength
44.3 - WGBX-SD (Create) 57% signal strength
44.4 - WGBX-SD (PBS-Kids) 57% signal strength
62 - WMFP (Home shopping network) analog
66 - WUTF (Telefutura-spanish) analog
68 - WPBX (ION-south) analog

This is with the built in tuner on my Vizio VW22L 22" LCD HDTV. Max resolution is 1680x1050 and up to 1080i. My second tv is an old console from 1986 with an ARTEC T3AP. I hooked up a splitter which sends it to both of these tv's. Although I do see some pixelation on the standard set. Overall I'm satisfied. I am sure I will get more soon enough. I'm Still looking at some different antenna options. Antenna web says for my location a Multi-Directional roof mounted UHF/VHF antenna will be best. I was looking at the DB4 on best buy's website. Right now I am using an RCA HD amplified silver flat panel antenna. I am not sure what the model is but it works really well for an indoor unit.

So what and how many channels do you get?

My Mitsubishi LCD TV unfortunately does not have a signal strength meter but I am receiving all stations without pixelation or artifact problems. Current antenna setup is Antennas Direct DB2. Originally had bunny ears connected, which didn't work well in the living room; on bunny ears, PBS, CBS, and Fox gave me quite a bit of pixelation (which would require me to get up and adjust the antenna everytime I tuned in to one of those channels.)

I have a Insignia NS-DXA1 Converter Box - DTV USA Forum with a signal strength meter, which I'll post up here soon. Interestingly enough, this converter receives all stations just fine with bunny ears.
