I recently hooked an old attic antenna up to an hdhomerun and it works great. The new hdhomerun add on in the kodi repo has really been working good.

Florida is so flat and you have good signals for the most part. I would suggest you first try a set of rabbit ears facing north. If that doesn't work well, try a Winegard FVHD30H on the roof. You should get satisfaction with one of those two.
How many TV's are being connected? More splitters, longer cable runs might call for an amp close to the antenna, before any splitter.

I applaud tv antenna useage! I think these antennas are best bang for the buck.

I have a clear channel antenna on my roof and I have it feeding into a Hauppauge usb hdtv recording dongle (I think it's a q850? ) that feeds into a silent fan less windows 8.1 computer which feeds into windows media center which allows me to record anything with a click of a button. So while I'm at work every day or while sleeping at night, I record all kinds of goodies.

Then I also have these little cheap Chinese hdtv antennas that look like a piece of cardboard on a stick behind each tv for independent antenna access for each tv.

I also pay for cable, my wife hates antenna tv lol, wait actually she pays for the cable.

I would like to connect 4 to 5 tv's. I would also like to use the existing cables from satellite i disconnect as as cable lengths my house does not have an attic roof is concrete so cables run outside around the house to each room the farthest cable run goes from SE end of the house all the way to the west side of the house.
