Just a reminder:
As suggested in post number #3. You better test a direct hookup from the wall to the TV first. Most likely... all you will get are "local channels". If that's all you desire, you're in good shape.
If you think you will get TBS, TNT, USA, Disc, ESPN, Bravo, etc. etc..... it ain't happening without a "box" (or a box with a cablecard).
In the US, you have to rent a cablebox for channels above the "limited basic" tier from your provider. Or... buy a Tivo (or similar device) and rent a cablecard.
IMO... if you don't need "DVR" functionality, just rent a standard HD capable box. Set's you back around $10 per month.
