Understood. Read this..it's from January:
Thanks Don for the reply. This isn't exactly what I was asking though (apologies for the lack of clarity). Here's a glimpse of my setup to clarify:
1) 95% of the time I watch TV via a SageTV extender (on an HDMI input). I've got a PC Server running SageTV in the basement, controlling and capturing HD from a CableBox. This is just like your DVR example for the sake of example.
2) 5% of the time we like to watch the TV directly, using the Coax input. Right now I can do a channel search and it will pick up a handful of channels that are being provided by Comcast over the coax (clear/unencrypted QAM). I'm missing out on some good HD options though that are present on an antenna.
Here's how what I can do with my Samsung, but can't seem to do with the nx810: Get what I'm getting (Cable Channels - QAM) COMBINED WITH over the air (ATSC) channels from an antenna .
My question to the guru-ship here is whether this is just a limitation to live with, or if there is an approach I'm not smart enough to have thought of to bring BOTH ATSC and CLEAR QAM together when I flick through channels.
Note: I guess there are "HD" Antennas that can connect via HDMI that I could use - which might be an option, but isn't what I was looking for.
