Unfortunately, there are no books or mags that are good on this subject. The good news is that this forum has more knowledgable people than anywhere else that I have found. Welcome. Just look for topics that discuss this subject.


I don't know your expertise but, for a starter, there are two types of units. Those with Over the air (OTA) decoders build in and those that require a separate set top box (STB). An example of the former is the RCA 61310. Some of the more popular separates are Mitsubishi and Toshiba. Some of the more popular STB are the Dish 6000 and the RCA DTC-100. The Dish 6000 also receives DishNetwork satellite and the DTC-100 also receives DirteTV satellite.


Good viewing. You will not regret buying one.
