As I understand it Stefan wants to be able to switch between
OTA HD and analog CATV. One easy solution, if you have
a VHS machine, is to hook the CATV to the VHS and take
the line out into an alternate input on the new TV. Use
the VHS remote to change channels on the VCR.

I could use a diagram of this connection. In lieu of that could you please confirm the connection path:
Cable TV from (in my case) directly from the cable outlet on the wall to the line in on the vhs/vcr.
vcr connects to hd tv via component cable or RCA jacks via line out
OTA antenna connects to the F connection on the HDTV or does it connect to the line in or out on the VCR.

Please confirm or correct the connection pathways.

Many thanks in advance for your help.
