Thanks again for all the help in this thread.

I will be ordering the HBU44 antenna and TVPRAMP-1R pre-amp, since each is considerably cheaper right now than the HD7698P and 10G201 respectively, and I don't get the impression that the extra expense would be necessary. (Reading all the 1-star reviews of the RCA pre-amp on Amazon does make a person nervous...but lots of people here seem to like it, and it's less than half the price of the other right now.)

We'll make sure the antenna is grounded; and the APC Back-UPS unit that I'm using in the family room has coaxial connectors, so I plan to run the line through there after the pre-amp in hopes of getting some extra protection.

Looking forward to seeing how this works. (And to seeing how good the picture looks compared to satellite. I know digital broadcast signals are still compressed, but satellite and cable are compressed more, yes?)
