    You cannot connect an over-the-air antenna directly to any HR21 model. You need a component called an AM-21, which is the OTA solution for the HR21 DVRs.

    Oh, punctuation and capitalization wouldn't hurt. ;)

    Short range indoor antenna - get the Zenith Silver Sensor, which is what the Terk and others copy, poorly. Bought mine on sale for $25 from Solid Signal.

    Check with antennaweb.org, too, for what they recommend in your zip code.
