I do have an outside antenna on my roof.
I've never tried an indoor antenna.
Can you explain the basic setup, please? I have a bunch of computers at home to use for that, even a Mac.
I'm not sure I need the recording capabilities you have though, but short term, the indoor antenna will keep the "boss" happy I think.
