    The 625 does not have a built in OTA tuner. It does allow for OTA passthru so that the tuner on you TV will pick up OTA if you hook an antenna in the back of the 625.

    Hooking your ota to your tv will get you the same thimg.. Your 625 will not get anything it doesn't already have.

    The 625 dvr only has satellite tuners and can only record those.
    You can not record any ota to the 625 dvr.
    You can only pass-thru any ota channels to your tv or a vcr.
    You could receive any ota channels that your tv can pick up on it's own.

    The only way to get MORE CHANNELS IS SUBSCRIBE TO A LARGER PACKAGE. The 625 CANNOT receive over the air channels it just passes the signal through to the TV set.
