Default Sony LCD and tunerless dvd recorder?

I have a Sony LCD KDL-46Z5100 tv which is connected only to a rabbit ears antenna with no cable or satellite connections.
Question: Can I record tv programs I'm watching with the following tunerless dvd recorder?

dvd recorder link: http://www.amazon.com/Toshiba-DR430K...=2Q4FNX70RCQZH

Sony LCD Link: http://www.televisioninfo.com/conten...nnectivity.htm


According to the above link, the KDL-46Z5100 has the following:

Output Ports (2.0)
The KDL-46Z5100 has a digital audio out port and an S-Video port.

Nope.
Your TV doesn't have a video output, to connect to your recorder.
You probably could just grab a cheap digital converter box off eBay & use it as a tuner for your DVD recorder.

Another idea, would be to get a Magnavox DVD recorder( MDR515H/F7 or MDR513H/F7 ).

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Magnavox-M...order/14291489

Can record on its internal 500GB hard drive.
Has all the tuners you'll need built in( NTSC/ATSC/QAM ).
ETC...
LIVING ROOM: Panasonic TC-P65V10, SONY BDP-S5000ES, SONY STR-DA5300ES, Emotiva XPA-5, Def Tech(BP2006 x 2, C/L/R2300, BP2X x 2, BP1.2X x 2)
BEDROOM: SONY KDL-52XBR5, OPPO BDP-103, Pioneer Elite SC-63, Energy(RC-LCR x 3), Paradigm(ADP-190 x 2), SVS PC12-PLUS

Thanks very much for the info. I looks like I'll be getting a dvd recorder with a built-in tuner.
