Cognitive Dissonance?

It's here! It's here! My HDTiVo was finally delivered by UPS an hour ago! I'm so excited...or am I?

I just served up $1070 (including tax) so I can get 7 (count 'em, 7) HD channels from D* and possibly 5 local channels OTA. And the OTAs are spotty at best in my area. Now I need to pick up a UHF antenna and strap it to the chimney. So, there's another $150 for the antenna and $11/month from D* for 4 of the 7 channels.

Hrmmmm... Maybe I *DON'T* want this, at least not until there are more offerings. I think I'm having Cognitive Dissonance. The reality is setting in that HDTiVos will only be cheaper and more available in the future.

Now it's time to stare at the box and determine if I'm going to open it or not.
