I am ready to install my OTA antenna. Do I just connect the coax lead to the antenna input on rear of 811 directly? Thanks.

Yep, from the antenna to the antenna input on the 811 via coax. It's pretty cut and dried.

The only problem you may run into is that the receiver will not allow through an HD signal of less than 49%. If you are in an area where it is difficult to get a strong signal, you may have to go with a larger (and/or more amplified) antenna.

I get mid 80% on my ABC and mid 60% on my CBS (NBC is not broadcasting HD OTA yet).
