    Pro with Digital OTA Antenna

    MalibuDave42

      We are planning to live abroad and I need my local sports! What is the cheapest, easiest way to connect my Pro to my antenna? Of course, all OTA is now digital here in the US.

       

      Thanks for any help

          You would have to get a digital to analog converter box to recieve OTA signal on the Sligbox coax. input.

           

          What I do, is use a HomeWorx HW-150PVR and take the componet output to the component input on the Slingbox PRO.

           

          The advantage to using the HW-150PVR over a D/A converter is that it has a built in PVR so you can also record TV shows or timeshift live TV.

          You will have to use a USB Hardrive to record shows but I use USB thumbdrives and have not had any issue.

          If you wanted to use a D/A converter with it you can do that too. That way you can watch a differnt channel and record a show at the same time.

           

          I bought my (2) HW-150PVR's on sale at NewEgg.com for $35 on sale. Regular prices is $45-$50.

           

          Hope that helps.
