    Is it possible to do dual tuner on the TivoHD with only an OTA antenna? That is, if I split the OTA signal, are there two inputs on the box for it?

    Thanks in advance.

    All you need is the one input, it can and does dual-tune the OTA. I've done it!

    There's an internal "splitter" within the TiVoHD. Just hook up your antenna directly into the OTA input on the TiVoHD, and it'll do the rest.

    The second input is for cable only. So, if you plan on getting basic analog cable or even cable with cablecards in the future, you can integrate your programming into one box with your OTA channels using the TiVoHD.

    Don't forget to repeat guided setup if you switch from Cable + OTA to just one or the other (or if you have one and add one)

    +1, no pixelization either.
    Just make sure to use good quality quad shielded RG6 coax. Preferably with factory terminations.
