miotv can connect to your tv using composite (the yellow rca), s-video, component and hdmi. your port i belief you are refering to RF port - the one which is used to connect to wall (antenna) socket?

It would be cheaper to buy it on the For Sale forums. I bought my first Humax for $380 and my second for $250. Do a search in the Marketplace forum. You can also buy the DRACO at Courts and Harvey Norman. I don't like the Draco because it gets very hot and it does not display the channel names like the Humax.

with the stb, you will be viewing digital channels. if you can receive the signal, the quality will be good. else the stb will be another white elephant.

I personally don't like the the quality of digital channel 5, they look awful on my plasma. I believe the sd channel 5 pictures are better. I only watch HD and my wife, channel U.
