I hope this is not a rehash of any other post, but I've search the forum and could not find an answer to my situation.
I'm using an HDTV as a secondary output for my Dish service. The signal is run via in-wall coaxial cable from the primary Dish receiver and connected directly into my HDTV; no secondary receiver. I want to install an OTA antenna, preferably the Mohu Leaf Paper-Thin Indoor HDTV Antenna. The problem is that my HDTV has only one coaxial antenna input, so I need to use HDMI for this second antenna input.
I would rather not buy an ATSC tuner if possible, so is there another cheaper solution to allow the use of a coaxial cable with the HDMI input?
@John, I've got the VIP222K receiver. I appreciate your answer, but your proposed solution is a bit too "advanced" for what I'm really trying to do. All I'm trying to do is connect 2 antenna sources with coaxial cables into an HDTV that only has one coaxial and one HDMI inputs.
I've read other threads that say the signal from a antenna with a coaxial cable has to be "converted" before it can be used in an HDMI input on the HDTV. Just trying to find the easiest and cheapest way to do that. Thanks!
Thanks for all the input. I ended up buying the OTA module for my Dish tuner. It does everything I wanted. I did try an HLSJ, but the signal was deteriorated quite a bit; lost 1/3 of the channels as I received using the signal straight from the antenna. Thanks again.
