    Tv antenna question

    Just found out That the new TiVo Roamio Will record from over the air broadcast. This is a very good thing as we gave up cable and satellite several months ago for budget reasons. Since the TiVo will record over the air however we can start watching broadcast TV again. One thing it requires though is a good antenna. Does anyone have a recommendation of a good one to look at to buy?

    and... moot point... to get that ability, they stripped it of other features, which I can 'add' back, at additional cost. Cheaper just to get the 'better' unit and sign back up for cable (but without the cable box).

    I'm no help {as usual } but will be watching this thread closely...we've tried every model our local Radio shack has/had on hand and have yet to be satisfied...Leaning towards an out-door model next go-round.

    Ned there may be some answers on Amazon reviews I notice S. Harrison mentions a antenna that he uses.
