I purchased this box on a whim a week or so ago and I must say it's a pretty nifty item. I added a 1TB Toshiba Canvio drive and for a total of about $90 it's a great buy for an HD OTA-only recorder....

Thank you for the suggestion Wajo. That does sound counter-intuitive, but I'll give it a try. I guess worst case I'll pick up an older (non-ethernet/non-ARC) cable and try that.

Wajo - Thank you for the quick reply. My gut feeling was that combining OTA + cable in a single coax would not work.

My guess is they will go with the analog cable signal as that carries the...

Thank you for the reply, Dave Loudin.

The tuner is set for AIR, as the TV can tune 2-1, 4-1, 4-2, 5-1, 5-2, 5-3, then skips to 22-1. I cannot tune 7-x, 9-x, 11-x or 13-x. They are missing in the...
