I wan't to cut the cord as many have, my question is what options is best for me?
I was looking at the Terk HDTVa antanna & will need some kind of tuner/receiver that will run into my HDMI matrix.
(matrix includes Epson 3010 projector.)

What receiver/tuner should I get?
It needs to have HDMI out with a built in tuner so I can have a channel guide option when surfing the channels. I do not need a DVR rec option.

An antenna recommendation is difficult without knowing your location and possible restrictions.
Go to www.tvfool.com and post your info.

At a quick glance, an HDTVi may work depending on the structure of your house/apt and relation to the x-mitters. You may not "need" an HDTVa.

What receiver/tuner would you recommend? I was thinking about a Channel Master CM7001

That one would work good also the Centronics ZAT502 HD will work fine. Those are the two I would choose from. Since you are 15 miles away from your stations the Terk antenna will work. I use the Terk TV 5 at my house and it works great.

Thread title edited. ALWAYS include a location with antenna help threads. See the sticky.

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.
