I'm brand new to this whole HD world, actually so new that I don't even have my HDTV yet (it is supposed to arrive tomorrow) so I need some answers about how I need to upgrade and what I need to upgrade to take full advantage of my new TV. Here's the deal:

I'm getting the JVC HD52G886 (with Tuner) and I currently have Dish Network with no HD box or anything special except for the Dual-DVR box (I think it's the 522). The new JVC is going in the living room, but my Receiver is currently located in the here are my questions:

1. Am I going to have to have Dish Network provide me with the HD Receiver?

2. If so, it is going to need to be installed in the living room?

3. Will I need an antenna to pick up the local HD Channels? (I do not currently have an exterior antenna, just a Dish)

4. Will Rabbit Ears work to pick up the HD local channels if I'm close enough? (I'm in the Houston, TX area, about 20-25 miles from most of the towers)

5. Is there anything else I need to know? I would appreciate any guidance anyone can offer, as I have never dabbled in HDTV before, so I have no idea what I need to have.

Thanks in advance for your help!
