I am considering dumping the $5 per month I pay to Dish Network for poor quality HD Local channels and get an OTA receiver. My question is, does anyone know if I can tie it into my DVR so I can record those channels, or is that not possible?

It depends on how old is your dvr/receiver
On older models yo can only turn off receiver to get OTA reception. On the newer DVR it is integrated on menu guide.

This section can guide yo to put both DN satellite and OTA HD antenna

The tuner in this case will be your HD receiver
