    Looking for a current list of HD decoder boxes that offer OTA inputs only. For instance, the Samsung SIR-T165 is an example.

    Also, do you really need a satellite setup if you buy a decoder that has both OTA and satellite capability or can you just use it as an OTA receiver (like the Samsung SIR-TS360)?

    I'm looking to get something in the next month but don't want to commit to cable or satellite completely at this point.

    No, you do not need the dish. Simply go into the setup of the box and set it to "no dish."

    And, FYI: You must leave the access card inserted in the box, even though it is not activated.
