I want to hook an off the air HD antenna up to an HD 720p projector. What is the best way to do this? I want to keep the cost as low as possible without sacrificing 720p HD quality. The antenna has an RF connector. The projector has HDMI inputs, as well as component and vga inputs. I know I could buy a DVR and connect the antenna to it, and then connect the DVR to the projector. But, are there any other options? I would like to do it for less than $50 if possible....the goal is to eventually get an HD capable DVR. Thanks!

Directv just upgrade their HD DVR's. So your in luck.
The market has been flooded with the older DirecTV DVR's The Model number is HR-10-250. It has a off air antenna so you can hook it up to your HDTV antenna. It also has a HDMI output. Good news for you. I don't know if you can get Tivo to let you activate it on their service with out using Directv. You might what to call them and ask before buying one. I do know you can get it to pickup local broadcast and pause for up to 30 min. You can't record anything till you find some way to get Tivo to let you start an acount with it. But at least you can watch TV with it.

Look on Ebay. There are many on the site now.

You should even be able to find one in you budget.

Good luck... and let me know how thing turn out.
