I'm considering getting a RPTV HD-ready set around 50". Currently I have traditional analog cable. Two questions: 1) My RPTV would be in the basement, where I can get the analog versions of my channels with decent reception using rabbit ears (stations 4-8 miles away). Does this mean I am likely to be able to pull in DTV with rabbit ears and an HD set top tuner? 2) Since the TV would be a monitor, can I run my cable into my VCR, run S-video from VCR to RPTV and get a picture? Or do I need some sort of other tuner? Will I be able to do PIP with this set up? Many thanks!
