Despite my AVS forum address, I also tune in in Fresno!
You can use an antenna to input directly to the plasma and an A.V. input from the cable box. The TV will switch between the two based on which input you select.
Using a smallish $25 Radio Shack UHF only antenna mounted on the roof I get strong HD signals for ABC,CBS,NBC and Public TV. Most importantly I also get FOX over the air, which Comcast does not send to you in HD, even if you subscribe to Comcast HD. Since I like "24" and "American Idol", it's great to get them in HD. Not to mention Fox sports in HD. So I'm only subscribing to Comcast HD to get HBO, ESPN and HDNET. If it weren't for the very nice two tuner DVR that they supply I wouldn't bother. HBO looks good blown up from SD, especially since their series are usually transmitted in 16:9 with black bars. You lose nothing (of the picture) in the blow up.
Pm me if you have any questions.
