HDTV antenna suggestions

I've had a nice DLP set for a while, but had DirecTV so I never picked up an antenna for it, or even looked into them. I know it has an internal tuner, but I know next to nothing about which antennas for it are decent. The last time any TV I used had an antenna was... 1989, so I'm a bit out of the loop. Anyone have any suggestions?

    I just (like 3 hours ago) upgraded my shitty $16 Philips antenna with a powered Terk indoor antenna, and it's like night and day.

    I used to have to dick around with the old one to switch between network and PBS, and this new one gets everything without fail. I've also picked up about 5 more OTA channels. Would absolutely recommend it. Bonus points because it doesn't look that stupid.

    They're gonna bury you, they're gonna finish. They're gonna stand 'em up six by six by six.

    I get 38 channels on my alu-foil-attached-to-a-coax-cable antenna, 32 of which are HD. So you could give that a shot before spending any money.

    I ended up buying the Terk. It picks up just about everything on the list of over-air channels where I live, except for two stations: ABC and CBS. Turns out, they're at 4.75kw and 8kw respectively, and 36 miles away being broadcast from the mast on the Sears Tower. Oddly enough, I can pick up another channel that's at 4.4kw being broadcast from the same place. Looks like I may have to invest in an outdoor antenna.
