HD receiver for your non-ATSC TV

For those of us who have a 2006 and possibly newer units that have Sony WEGA TVs... They are capable of displaying HD content but do not have an HD tuner. Last week I solved that problem. I purchased a Wineguard RC-1010 from solidsignal.com. Winegard RC-1010 Digital HD Receiver (RC-1010) | RC-1010 [Winegard] | hd tuner hdtv tuner hd receiver hdtv receiver HD3150 Winegard RC-1010 Digital HD Receiver (RC-1010) rc1010 rc 1010 Winegard RC-1010 Digital HD Receiver (RC-1010) hd converter conve
It was simple to setup and works very well. THe remote is easy to use and picture quality is excellent.

As far as the folks at solid signal know it is the only external HD tuner to have HD outputs.

This solves the Feb 2009 problem.

Hi,

We do not have an hd tv for the Safari, or the home..we have an analog portable tv/vhs combo that we keep in the safari..and I bring my hp laptop..not quite ready for the change, but in the meantime..my son got me this hd tuner antenna that has a usb cable that just plugs right into the laptop..It comes w/this little rectangle antenna that can be set up on the table or attached by suction cup to the window..it allows us to get any local tv stations wherever we are..and you can also record programs w/the software that comes with the tuner..

Unfortunately the usb thing only works on the Windows platform.

elgato

I have had several of elgato's tuners including the eyety hybrid. All work great... highly recommend their products.

Have used a Mac Mini, hybrid, flat screen, wireless mouse and keyboard to provide all you need on the road for entertainment and computing... works great.

Another option is to purchase a DVD player/recorder with HD tuner. Kills two birds with one stone.

We did the "sooner or later" thing sooner. Bought a 20" Visio HDTV from Costco and a nice little 350 watt pure sine wave inverter for when we are boondocking. The TV does just fine with old antenna that came on our '65 Caravel. It has a UHF loop. I put a switch on the input line going to the TV so that we may use our Dish or cable from an RV park

No extra stuff to carry around, go bad. The old TV was just that, old. Couldn't justify spending money to make it work next February.

I may be going that route as well since I like my monitor. Where do you put the set top box? Do you connect it to the ucable outlet and it works with the radio for the AS speakers? I know nothing... I need an education here. It would be nice if it could be installed and not be seen and maintain all the functionality of the audio/video package AS installed.

And why is Camping World charging 70 dollars to install it?
