    For $39 I was able to buy this TV tuner + remote + antenna for my 07 Escalade.

    When I plugged it in, this happened. Perfect!

    I have a 4000W inverter that I intend to mount under the hood and run power under my passenger seat. Finding a switched source at the box will be interesting.

    However, I need to find a way to mount a good antenna somewhere in the truck or on top. Any ideas?

    inside or under the rear appliques, you could run 2 short antenna's one on each side, anymore though broadcast tv is kind of old school (although free!) you could get a hotspot and a roku and just run hdmi to the monitor and have thousands of things to watch.

    Thanks. My 07 only has composite inputs. (Yes I know it's old and I've test driven new Escalades. I'm going to push this to 200K)

    I do have an extra Roku and unlimited data though...

    FWIW: I want this for tornadoes and college football. Sometimes we get tornadoes hitting OKC and our local news is A+. I also chase them :/

    you can adapt hdmi to composite, either way looks good
