I'm ditching Comcast cable and going to an OTA antenna. My cable TV coaxial cable connects to the cable box and an HDMI out goes to my Denon A/V. From there another HDMI goes to my TV...this way I have full surround sound.

When I ditch Comcast I will no longer have the cable box, so I need a converter for the coaxial to plug into the HDMI on my Denon.

Can someone recomment a coaxial to HDMI converter? I've checked the archives and can't seem to find an answer.
 
If you are going OTA that coax from the antenna needs to go to a ATSC tuner. It is not just a matter of converting coax to HDMI. If your TV has a tuner built in, as most do, then you would connect the antenna coax to it and the audio out of the TV (usually optical) to your Denon receiver for sound.
You could also buy an OTA receiver with DVR built in and that would have HDMI output.

What model numbers TV and Denon receiver do you have? It may be a simpler solution going from the antenna, directly to the TV and then, if your TV has an audio output and your receiver has a matching audio input, from the TV to your receiver.
