Also, if I need a replacement, can you guys recommend any?
Hi, I'm trying to join the HDTV world for the first time. I'm in college; I live in a dorm. Since I can't get satellite or premium cable, it'll have to be OTA. I also can't really climb out on the roof, so it'll have to be an indoor ant. However, I live on the 12th floor in a decent-sized town--Champaign, so I think it might be alright.
I have a question: I bought an amplified Philips antenna that was advertised as HD-ready. However, I took it out of the box and its only output is a coaxial cable! Is it possible to get HDTV if you're connecting the antenna by coaxial cable to the tuner? From there, I'll use either HD RGB (I think that's what the serial-looking connection is called) or the 5-part AV to connect the tuner to my HD-ready Zenith television. Thanks!
