How to connect OTA TV signal to the projector?

There is a coxial input on my projector, however it does not have a built in ATSC tuner. I am wondering if there is an inexpensive and easy solution to connect the projector with OTA TV signal.

Any advice/recommendation will be appreciated.

One wonders what the coxial input is carrying if it doesn't have a tuner, I suspect it's and composite RF signal from a VCR or some such. In that respect you might get something but certainly not HD. Anyway, you really need an ATSC tuner for HD digital, these can be bought as external boxes for ~$100 and connected to various inputs on your projector.

HTPC with dual tuner if you're starting from scratch and have nothing...or if you have a dual core pc not you can spare that you can add an ATSC tuner card. That way, you can pretty much play all media and can record ATSC.

A HD ATSC box (there is one at Canada Computers for <$100) is a very good alternative especially for the 'comphobic'.
