Hey Folks
Your suggestions are more than welcome.I have a Denon 2808CI running 5.1 and a Samsung 58 HD Plasma in the living room and a old CRT hooked up through my Carver C1 and Carver TFM25 in the bedroom both currently using FIOS TV box's(HD in the living room and Standerd in the bedroom). I want to get rid of the 90.00+ a month for the TV and keep the internet and FIOS phone, so I'm going OTA. From the looks of things I can just plug the 75ohm cable into the Plasma and take the 2 audio outs from the Plasma and run them to the Denon, and it should do the 5Ch processing? In the bedroom however I guess I am going to have to get either a converter box(any suggestions?)or a new TV?
PS I did look for a previous dicourse on this subject and read the sticky how to's
EDIT
Could I use my old Sony RDR GX300 as a recorder and as a converter box for the old CRT bedroom TV?

Thanks for the input but I'm not ready to start using my computer for TV input yet. I think I can do a good job with what I have but was still wondering if that Sony dvd recorder with a built in tuner would save me bucks by using it in the bedroom for dig reception. The main TV audio outs to the Denon should give me 5.1 on HD channels I think.

Thanks for the input.
Well this old set is only going to play analog as it is not a HD set so analog I guess.
The old CRT has an S-video input so if I have to by a converter box I thought(after some serious looking around) that the Channel Master CM700 would or could be a good choice?

Went on the Gov. site-got my ant-pre-amp splitter everything ordered. It's just the older 36" CRT I am trying to deal with. The 52" Plasma HDTV should be a no brainer.
