2 Analog TV switching from basic cable
Only need indoor antenna.

Searched and found these recommendations:

-Philips SDV5119/27

What would you recommend and why?

One of the TV is over 20 years old. Compatible issue?

Does some antenna come packaged with converter box?

The Terk will be slightly more directional and offer a few dB of gain on the UHF band (real channels 14 and up). This is due to the log periodic elements used.

On VHF, (real channels 2 through 13) the adjustable length dipole rods can be expected to perform equally on both products.

I would mildly favor the Terk for it's added directivity... but that may require you to turn it to point at the desired station when changing channels.

I have not seen antennas provided with STB's (set-top-box).

No compatibility issues, even back to a B&W vacuum tube set. (If your sets have been connected to cable service, they can be connected to a STB.)
