First Step...

I gave the ol' owner's manual a look through, and there's a built in digital tuner, even though it was built and sold before the March 1, 2007 cut-off.
Now I was ready for an antenna. In general, outdoor kicks indoor's ass. Being in a little apartment in Brooklyn, I didn't have the outdoor option.

There's a website that can tell you appx how well you should receive signals based on your location:

NYC has it good, and I should be OK with an indoor.

I found this really helpful during my Research

I eventually settled on the Terk HDTVa ($36.83 after tax)...
1. J&R had it in stock.
2. Good reviews.
3. Comes w/ an amp ($10 less for the HDTVi, which doesn't have one)... just in case.
-1. Ugly as sin.

I got it home, quick little temporary(I hope) hookup... and what do you know, got all the basics in HD, great start.

some notes... just to clear up any confusion.
