How do you.....

No more cable or SAT. I'm going to use a couple of cheap things over the net like maybe Sling and Netflix. I'm going to put up an antenna for over the air.

I get antennas, I'm a ham, I have a decent antenna and rotor I will put up at about 24 feet. What I don't get is these HD tuners. Am I going to have to scan for each rotor direction? I have stations I will receive in three directions. On all these TVs I've seen you do one scan and that's it. Don't tell me I have do a new scan each time I move the rotor. I've done scans and moved the antenna back to a previous direction and manually entered a channel number that worked in that direction but no go. You have to rescan with the changed direction? Say it ain't so. I've seen no TV tuner with preset banks.

Also there seems no info on these TVs to compare tuner quality. Your thoughts welcomed.
