    ...anyone have any recommendations?... keep in mind, i'm not interested in a "converter", ..but a ATSC tuner that i can feed to an older LCDTV, which only has a built-in NTSC tuner (not ATSC)... so basically, i can't get OTA HD until i get the right tuner..

    looking around i've seen this seems to be a little bit of a "niche" market for these things,.. many seem to be combo devices (DVR, DVD, even VHS), ...though i don't need superflous stuff especially if it costs more money..

    what i'm interested in:

    - ATSC tuning
    - HDMI or DVI out (720p, 1080i)
    - stereo audio out, digital audio (toslink, etc) a plus...
