Recommended TV for OTA tuner
I currently have a nice Bravia TV, but its only fault being a 1st generation Digital. Which means that I can only pull about 3 channels. On my other TV's I get a lot more. I am thinking of replacing the 1st generation with a new LCD model. Would I just attach a coaxial to the second coaxial connection on the LNB and route to the tv? Thus using the dish as an antenna for the OTA? Or is there much more to it than that?

I'm confused as to what you are asking but no you cannot use a dish (Dish dish, directv dish, FTA dish) for OTA receptionDirectv Slimline SWM 5 LNB and DirectvWorld dish on the roof of the apartment building...Directv HR34 AKA Genie
All FTA stuff in storage right now

I ended up getting my new TV today.
The last owners of this house had replaced the roof at one time and stowed a humongous antenna in the attic.
I just ran a coaxial from that to the new TV and whamo! 20 OTA digital channels.

In order to acquire more channels should I install an amp? The coaxial from the antenna to the TV is over 20' and also has a splitter.

Having an antenna in the attic might also have a negative effect on reception. You should look up your potential reception on line, this will give you coordinates so you can check the pointing of your antenna as well.
