hey guys. i've got regular cable and am looking to pick up the HD channels. i don't want to pay for the digital cable service from my provider so i'm just looking for a cable box that will let me pick up my local HD channels. i suppose an antenna would work too... how expensive are those?


what do you guys think my best option is?

Get a used Sony HD 200 or 300 from ebay and plug your cable into it (cable in) and a indoor antenna and plug it into "antenna in" and then plug the satellite box into the tv. Should work, the Sony doesn't have to be activated to work.
