    I have one 625 and one 722. Are the OTA inputs for an antenna on these machines reading digital or analog? For example, tired of the dispute over Fisher Broadcasting and channel 2 here in town, would like to just go OTA, but can I receive the digital signal when it goes all digital after Feb?

    There is an ATSC (digital) tuner in the 722 which can be viewed on TV1 in realtime. If you want to see OTA on tv 2 you have to record it on TV1 and play it back on TV2.
    There is no OTA tuner in the 625. The antenna input is only a pass-through to the channel 3-4 output.

    For the 722, you can just plug it into an antenna. For the 625, you will need a digital tuner. I just finished posting on the same general subject in another thread. Click here.
