Since i'll be buying the Humax, so I don't have to spend on the M8 BDX Model? Just buy a normal one will do right?

If I buy Humax, how many digital channels will I get? Only Chn 5 & Chn8?

digital channels available: Ch 5, Ch 8, CNA, TVMobile & HD5.

its true that digital Ch5, 8 & CNA are slightly lower quality as they are using same frequency and has a lower video bitrate compression. TVmobile on the other hand has a higher video & audio bitrate and visually they have a smoother video quality.

I think the BDX model is only 200 more expensive than the non IDTV model right? Somemore i think they give a free antenna. (from best denki)

normal scv plug? no - the socket would have been enabled to connect to scv infrastructure. you need to be connected to the rooftop antenna instead.

In many case, they are actually selling at the same price. So just buy those with BDX in case you need to use it later.

it's not a analog tuner. perhaps you meant digital 8?
