OTA HD receiver

Postby smack323 » Wed Aug 25, 2010 7:58 am

I am looking for an over the air HD receiver. I am looking to grab some local feeds to hook up to an HD projector when away from my home? I have read a few places a DirectTV tuner such as the HR20 would allow me to do this without a direct TV account. I have also read this would not work. I am just wondering if anyone has done this or can recommend a setup. I need it to have HDMI output also.

worked out well. The over the air HD reception was surprisingly crisp.
