I have an OTA antenna mounted on my roof. It is curently hooked up to my TV (my TV has an ATSC tuner built in) and everything is working fine.
However, I have an older video processor that I would like to insert into the video chain to correct the color decoding and gamma tracking on the TV. Unfortunately, this video processor does not have a COAX input.
So, if I want to run the video signal through the video processor, I need to use an available DVI or Component video input.
I really wish there were some easy way to convert COAX to HDMI without actually decoding the video, but I don't know of any such COAX-->HDMI converter. Does such a thing exist?
If not, I am gathering that I will need to buy an ATSC tuner that has HDMI and/or Component outputs to sit as an intermediary between my RG6 COAX cable and my video processor. This seems like a waste when all I really need is conversion from one output type to another, but if that's what I need, I guess that's what I'll have to buy.
Question #2) Can I use a TIVO Premier as an ATSC tuner WITHOUT paying the membership fees?
