so i have a panny plasma, with no tuner, figured 8 yrs ago the cable box would suffice, now that i ditched that, i was wondering if there is a way to hook up an hd antenna to an external tuner that i could run in component

if so, anyone have this setup and what would you suggest as brand and model , tia

Found an external digital hd tuner with hdmi, component (RGB) and composite video output. Audio is 2 channel (left / right) RCA output. You could probably find some more tuners with your favorite search engine.

Hope that helps.

depends what country you are from ?
In the U.S. when the government killed NTSC signal. Then they offered Free boxes ATSC you can still buy those in walmart.

If you get a DRV box beware of those cheap ones they have no schedule guide! For a single unit the best is Channel Master DVR
If you want to set up a network look into HDhomeRun they have a Kodi addon to watch TV.

The cheapest and probably the BEST is use your PC with Windows7 get a tuner card Microsoft has the best Channel guide its free in Microsoft media center. Then use Open ServerWMC it will allow you to play it on all your Kodi TV's
