Excellent reply MartyP. I have a $10 antennae that I bought in 1991, the old directional type with the uhf on the front and the wider and wider "branches" for VHF.
I currently am receiving EXCELLENT OTA digital signals.
I do EXACTLY what you suggested.
I even have a DVD recorder in my "mix".
1. Input right from my old antennae comes into the INPUT side of my DVD recorder.
2. Output from the DVD recorder goes to the INPUT of my Series 2 ANALOG Tivo box and it works perfectly.
3.The output from my Tivo box, then goes into a really cheap splitter.
One side connects to my DTV ATSC tuner on my new TV and the other side of the splitter connects to the old NTSC analog tuner.
So I can just watch analog TV, or Digital TV, or TIVO anything from analog for now, and also even use my DVD recorder to record analog programs, OR to write to DVD (the SAVE to VCR option on my TIVO box.)
I think there is a LOT of mis information out there and people are selling VERY expensive convertor boxes that just arent needed.
The deadline to drop analog broadcasting has been postponed 2 or 3 times anyway.
Good luck everyone, just relax. Tivo has it covered.
