Actually, I'm not confused at all. If they made a box with a tuner equal to my HDTV, I would buy it in a heart beat. But they don't. I've been wasting countless hours on this endeavor. I'm am totally convinced that there is some sort of conspiracy against the OTA people. Your solution might seem fine for cable or if you live basically on top of the transmitter, but if you are in a fringe area, you need a top notch tuner. After countless hours of reasearch, I am convinced that the USB or network solutions are junk for my intended purpose. There is a reason they don't sell a tuner for my situation. I certainly don't know the politics of the situation but I'm convinced that the media and cable companies have a lot to do with it. Wouldn't it be pretty simple to take the tuner out of a TV, connect a USB port to it, and voila!, you have what I and thousands of others need. They know they are selling substandard stuff. Look on ebay. The solutions that I want are being sold in Australia. We can't get the stuff they are enjoying. Our government and corporate hacks are controling us more than you will ever realize. The solutions are being kept from us intentionally. As a matter of fact, I'm going to get my hands on a junk hdtv and hack a tuner solution right out of that thing. I hate it when big brother rears his ugly head. As far as I'm concerned, I'm signing out of this thread. I'm heading over to OTA forum and stirring up some crap.
