I probably should post this topic in the hdtv forum but I figured this forum gets more traffic.


I've read that over the air reception for HDTV is better than using my comcast cable box. Is this true?


If so, what type of portable antenna is recommended? I live in an apartment.



Thanks so much!

It depends if your local Comcast company is broadcasting the MPEG 2 stream at a full 19mb's per second or not, some do some don't. If they are broadcasting at full bandwidth I doubt you'd see much if any PQ increase switching to OTA. If you still want to try out OTA, you need an ATSC tuner and an antenna, post us your results from antennaweb.org and we'll see what we can recommend you try out for an antenna.
