    Is there a way to run my OTA HD through the HDVR2 so I do not have to switch video inputs on the TV when I want to switch to OTA HD prgramming?

    I ran a search and could not find an answer.

    You can run OTA thru it, but it ONLY switches between it & OTA on the RF 3/4 output when you put it in standby, NOT on any of the video outputs.
    So, unless you would be satisfied with watching it on RF3/4 out (which I sure hope you wouldn't!) then no, it won't do what you are wanting to do.

    Just curious, what is the big deal between switching your TV between a video input & OTA - you would be changing channels anyway thru the TV... :confused:

    Its not a big deal for me. However, it confuses the heck out of my wife. I told her just to watch SD and not worry about HD if she can't figure it out.
