HD TV better with OTA directly connected?

If I have an HDTV and I connect my OTA directly to my TV, will I get a better picture than how it is connected now, through the D* box? If I do connect directly to TV, would I then use the TV remote to watch locals in HD? I have a Samsung DLP, BTW.

I would have to think that the picture would be the same. I personally use the D* receiver since it is the HR10-250. I like being able to record the HD local stations with the Tivo. I also like having the channels integrated within the guide.

It's the same. The only difference is in convenience, and it's more convenient to run it through ur dtv box. I tried it both ways, and the pic quality was exactly the same.
