Terrain has much to do about distances of receiving signals. I have found the better way than an actual antenna signal booster, is the indoor distribution booster. In many cases the antenna is getting the signal, but gets lost in the cable run to the receiver. I say better because I have had two antenna boosters get zapped by lightning. (My antenna is well grounded) While my indoor distribution booster has now lasted for over three years with no problems. It's the difference in getting all the Springfield Mass OTA channels, or only one.

I have tried an indoor booster, it did not help. I have tried switching the coax from the TV to the receiver, didn't help. I tried eliminating the tv, having no splits from the antenna. I have no problem getting Mt Tom (springfield - wgby and wggb) on my tv tuner. Wwlp is out because I have to aim through a radio transmitter, I can see in my back window. I can also get worcester uni, no problem, and even utica wktv, no problem on my tv. The dish tuner just can not pull them in. Interestingly, high vhf is a problem because of the microinverters on my solar array. Not a hugh issue because it is fine at night.
I was having so many issues with the dish receiver, I have removed the antenna input to it and have combined it with the TV 2 output to the other tvs in the house, so I have ota on them now. The dish receiver would screw up recordings, if I left the ota tuned to a weak channel.
Thanks for the advice, I appreciate it, but I really think it is the quality of the tuner on my 722k.
Do I understand correctly? Dish is not prohibited from importing wgby, it is their decision not to negotiate and provide it. Wgby and wgbh are the state's pbs channelsMust see TV, TNBC, TGIF,,Laughabcn, Monday nights on CBS when Northern Exposure was on - who said it is just TV?
