The tuning adapter might let your device send the same information. This was gleaned from asking my cable company Brighthouse how they would support a Tivo box.
Interestingly ATT U-Verse doesn't support any of that and Tivo said there are no FCC requirments to allow ustomers to use alternative boxes.
Unfortunately, the damn SDV adapters aren't HD. The only output on the things is a composite one (yellow for video,red and white for audio). And the ones Comcast is using have new, special double-top-secret IR remote coding, so you can't use an "IR Blaster" to control it for channel selection or timing.
Savior, conqueror, hero, villain. I am all of these things... and yet I am nothing. In the end, I belong to neither the light nor the darkness. I will forever stand alone.

http://www.antennaweb.org This is to help to see if OTA is right for you. You put your address in and answer some specific questions which will affecting signal strength. You will get a list of stations from that location with the type of antenna it recommends, and the direction the stations come from.
I am not indicating that this product will only work with OTA.
Please don't delete this post, I am trying, honest!
