As far as bright house is concerned, I don’t have the digital set top box, however I'm pretty sure that the signal is digital. I used to be able to pick up a few HD channels with my basic service, however I cant anymore.
How would I connect the OTA antenna and my bright house cable to this PVR? Is it possible?
Unless you want to broadcast the cable signal out your antenna using a splitter (in reverse), you would connect the two items through an A-B switch. You need to do your own assessment of the value of having both OTA and digital cable (raw QAM) connected. I would connect the cable to your TV to see what comes though to judge if this worth your effort. If the only digital QAM is QVC, INSP, and HSN, it might not be worth it. Additionally, you will have to see if there are any channel conflicts that would make the whole project a waste of time.
Just speculating, but you have some work & reading to do.
Also, I get 140 digital clear QAM channels. All my local channels are analog, SD and HD. But all cable feeds are local.
