No, I don't have either of these one. which one (brand, model) do you recommend to get Fox-HD using OTA? TIA!
First of all, make sure if your Samsung DLP has a built-in ATSC tuner. I have a Mits 62725 and it has a built-in tuner. I connected the TV with a Zenith Silver Sensor antenna, taped it, san the stand, on top of an 8-foot bookshelf right next to my TV (i.e., indoor), point it in the northernly direction, and boom, I get everything, Fox, CBS, ABC, NBC (both 11 and 48.2), UPN, WB, all the PBS's, action36, jazzTV (??) and a slew of other stuff. Occasionally the signal will break up, mostly during the day, but it's been pretty good and I don't even have to have the antenna outdoor.
If the Sammy doesn't have a tuner, then yes, you will need a HDTV tuner, or subscribe to Voom, which will provide you with an OTA antenna and a STB with tuner. I am in the Sunnyvale area.
