Digideal,digideal said:I am in an apartment with a south view, and my local tower is southwest. I have a 15 story building blocking my direct view of the tower. So, I am frustrated that I am not receiving locals.
I have tried the TERK TV55 which picked up diddly squat. I bought a SilverSensor which if you hold it in the right place, scratch your butt and stand on your left pinky toe, will get two stations. i have successfully received OTA for all mapped stations with the antenna in different places, but have yet to find an all in one solution.
Anyone out there, PLEASE HELP!!! I don't want to be stuck without locals! I want my all HD locals...badly! Can anyone help me?
I too have the TERK55. Here is my rundown of antennas... I originally got all the small antenna's best buy and circuit city had but none of them worked unless I "stood on my head". I live in South Florida and there are lots of stations but for whatever reason none of the small antennas worked. I got the TV55 thinking it would be better, hey it's 100.00 so more money = better reception.. nope... Then I got the Zenith Silver Sensor, but that was better but i still had to "stand on head" and not budge to get a station clean.. This was with the antenna relatively close to the TV. Then I moved antenna to attic and Voila that was the key, 100% better but still some issues. Then I went and bought the TV55 again and placed this in my attic and this worked even better and i was able to get stations i didnt even know existed digitally. When I get my voom installed next week I will speak to the installer to see what I can do... every once in a while it pixelates but that is maybe 1ce or 2ce in a hour on some stations in worst case scenario..
