WOW - I connected "raw" feed from the street into my TV and it looks like I can pull in all "basic" and "standard" channels which is almost 90 channels - of course, only analog/standard definition.
Unfortunately, the content is the same crude that caused us to drop pay TV a long time ago :0)
Is there a converter device I can attach that would allow my tuner to "see" the digital HD information?
As stated by sitlet a cable box will work for you. Might be cheaper than the fine for theft of services when you get caught since you clearly indicated that you are NOT paying for TV services from the provider.
