Any of you guys have experience with built in ATSC tuners in your HDTV? Is the PQ as good as a stb? Did you need an antenna?
Is it worth the 100 dollar mark up?

If there is a possibility you may want to connect it to an antenna at any time (moving it to the kitchen, bedroom, etc). I'd pay the extra money to not have to deal with the extra cables, remote, and set-top box. Likewise, if you think you may need to watch cable HDTV in those locations, I'd make sure the HDTV has a CableCard input for the same reason. Not all HDTVs with ATSC tuners also have CableCard. Some have reported the CableCard PQ is better than the stb, but you lose PPV, TV guide, and possible DVR capabilities.

I'm curious about the reports of better PQ with cablecard. I wonder if that's just the analog channels, where many of the existing HD STBs (and especially the Moto HD DVR) have really lousy PQ, or if it's also the HD channels. I'd be surprised if it is that latter, and don't really care about the former.
