Since cable companies do this, I assume it must be possible. My question is, how do I combine the OTA (digital) signal from my antenna with the analog cable coming to the house, so that I only run one coax to each room? And is this going to degrade the OTA digital signal --I'm already having trouble picking up some stations with a direct feed from the antenna to the STB (preamp is on the way).

Analog cable and OTA TV overlap the same frequencies. You can't combine them. CableTV uses different frequencies for analog and digital channels.

You would need something to shift the frequency of the OTA feed up by so many channel numbers to be above the cable feed, and then tune the digital receiver to those new, higher channels. It certainly can be done, I'm sure Radioshack would have something like that. Don't know how expensive though.
