I am about to cancel Direct TV and I will be left with the box without the card, can you use this Direct TV box as a HDTV tuner and with an HD antenna pick up HD channel over the air for free?

Thanks in advance for your reply.

In my experience, it has been the case that you can use a DirecTV receiver with integrated ATSC tuner as a stand alone ATSC over the air tuner. Just make sure you have a good antenna for receiving your local channels and that the receiver you have actually has that tuner built in.
