Slingbox in Charleston.
iView 3500STBII Multi-Function Digital Converter Box with Recording and Media Playback (Old Version)
You connect your friend's antenna to this ATSC tuner (there's a pass-through to the TV), and you connect the tuner to the Slingbox with Component and audio cables, and to the TV with the coax pass-through.
Since there's two separate tuners (one on your friend's TV, and the other on this box) you can be watching different channels simultaneously.
I have a rooftop antenna in Beaufort. Savannah TV comes in fine; the only reliable signals for Charleston these days are WGWG, WTAT, & WCIV, although WCSC & WCBD can be received spotty in the evenings.. Too many trees in the northeast direction, and only an 18ft antenna.
