Thanks. Is that what "configurable

Also, you say, both QAM and OTA channel sets will be remembered simultaneously and easily switchable. Why then 260 can't remember all channel sets, obtained from different OTA antenna orientation angles? Is there a way to restore a channel set from previous angle without rescanning (may be from a USB Stick or PC, etc.)?
Can you recommend a cheap Remote controlled A/B Switch? Can it be controlled by the same Samsung Remote (how: via 260 or directly)? Would a Combiner or single Diplexer like this
(but for Cable & OTA signal combo) right before H260F also interfere with signal quality? Or Diplexers must be used only in pairs, or can't be used to combine Cable with OTA?
Can signals from 2 identical OTA Antennas, set at different angles, be combined in a Combiner or single Diplexer? Will Samsung 260 tune and remember all the channels from such combined signal?
Also, are Terminators required for each unused coax Splitter port, or just plastic Caps? Which Splitter and Terminator makes / models are recommended for OTA and Cable? Will the same models be good for both signal types (in separate OTA and Cable TV Coax runs)?
Sorry for asking so many questions, but proper H260F setup has many aspects.
