I see one here that has only one input signal. That may complicate
a situation where you want to be able to select between, say, a
cable feed and an OTA antenna. Maybe an RF switch of some type
could be used to switch between sources ? http://www.fusionhdtv.co.kr/eng/Products/RTLite.aspx
You might get better answers at a forum like this. They used
this sample device last year, to receive signals from cable or from
OTA. OTA used an antenna. Note that the software is a crucial
consideration, and a crashing piece of crap software could ruin
an otherwise good piece of hardware. http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/print...7&page=1&pp=30
