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....

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...
