Help me find a TV, combine OTA + Cable

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Looking for a TV that will allow me to combine OTA HD channels and cable (very basic Comcast cable, no box).

Either a tv with 2 coax inputs, or a tv that will distinguish OTA and cable signals with reverse splitter?

Don't want to use a STB or a A/B switch.

Preferably LCD, but plasma is ok. 40-50

Been searching, but haven't found a definitive answer. Hopefully you guys can help.

recommendations?

You can't run HD cable over coax. You need component or HDMI. Any TV allows you to combine input sources. BTW, these type of help me choose threads are supposed to go in the "help me find an LCD" master thread

BTW, you will still need a decoder box or cable card from the cable company to decode HD channels. You won't need a splitter because the TV has multiple input sources that will combine the cable and OTA and display it in your guide
