We recently purchased but have not yet set up a 1)Samsung UN22F5000 HDTV, 2) a Sony BDP-S5100 Blu-ray Player, and 3) a Roku 3. The Samsung has QAM tuning.
We're on Comcast cable; we do not yet have an HD cable box.
The Samsung HDTV has two HDMI ports; we'd like to use those for the Blu-ray player and the Roku.
Which means co-axial input into the HDTV. The HDTV has only one co-axial port, labeled ANT IN written over AIR/CABLE. Using co-axial cable, and using the remote to switch inputs, can I do this and get both OTA HD and cable HD?
HD Cable Box
All advice will be sorely appreciated.

The image quality will be really bad if you use the coxial input. You need a switcher, which is a device that you will conect to one of the HDMI inputs of the TV, and then connect all devices to the switcher. Usually home theather receivers have this function, i.e. you hook up everything to the receiver and then connect the receiver to a single HDMI input on the TV. Another option is to manually switch cables. Bottom line: don't use anything but HDMI.
