Hi guys,

It's been a while since I've been around here so I hope you all are doing well!

I have a question. I ended up getting rid of my cable so my wife and I have been watching tv using an antenna and we also have apple tv. I have a projector downstairs with my Axioms and that's where we do our movie watching. It's hooked up through a HK receiver that has two hdmi inputs and one output (HK247 I think is the model number).

Anyhow, I've been tinkering with the idea of somehow getting OTA channels to play through my receiver downstairs especially since the Superbowl is coming up. Is there some kind of digital box that can hook up to it and give me OTA channels?

Thank you guys for your help!

Does your projector have an audio out?

Channel master makes 'em. OTA gray hoverman user here.

Been in the same predicament for a while too. They are expensive for what they are. A DVR model is available too.

It might have an audio out, but I have my sources going through my receiver then to the projector. Unfortunately I don't have a PC hooked up to it so my options are pretty limited. I'll take a look at that Channelmaster. It looks interesting to me.

Thank you guys!
