    OK, I'm new at this. I've rediscovered CordCutters. I think it can help me with our TV viewing. We don't have cable/satellite. Haven't had any for years. However, what we are experiencing is diminishing TV reception in the back of our house. I don't understand, as the transmitting towers haven't changed - at least as far as I know, but the fact of the matter is the reception in the back of the house is down to just a few channels.

    What brought me back to CordCutters was the video clip I saw of someone (don't know his name) on Windows Central, who had a nice setup to watch OTA TV, using an antenna on the house and running a cable from that antenna to the cable TV's box on the outside. I thought using that box was not allowed. Am I wrong about that?

    If I am wrong about that, what sort of cabling do I have to use to go from antenna to the cable box on the outside of the house?

    They may have used the box to make the connection easier. I don't think it's required; you should be able to go straight to your TV from the digital antenna.

    Yes, you can connect an HD antenna directly to the cable input on your tv. The box you reference could have been a signal booster or DVR unit.
