    First off... welcome!!

    Since the OTA tuner in the 211 is digital only, the main use for the 211 tvset out is to allow the analog tuner in your XBR960 TV (or FM tuner, or VHS... remember those?, or ...) to be able to tune analog OTA channels. I imagine if you had a second STB for digital OTA it would pass that as well. So if you want analog OTA, use it. You also want to check if your XBR960 has a separate coax input for 'antenna' and use it instead of 'cable'. Some sets combine the functions, some do not. The tvset output is an antenna output, not cable.
