Hello,

I have a 42" Toshiba LCD TV (42HL57)
http://www.toshiba.ca/web/product.grp?lg=en&section=2&group=521&product=7116&cat egory=

The specs say it does not have an ATSC tuner. Is there still some way I can use an antenna to receive an HD picture, or do I need some sort of tuner?

Thanks.

If you want OTA HD you need a tuner. You can buy HD tuners for a fair price on ebay but the one I have, Hisense, has some audio sync issues. The better quality ones like Motorola aren't cheap.

Another choice can be:
Panasonic DVD burner with HD tuner
$229

For that price you can get the Philips/Magnavox 160gig HDD recorders with ATSC tuner. The Walmart near me had the Philips for $200 last I knew. I'm not a Philips fan, they are actually Funai, but people on VideoHelp seem to like them.
