I was using plain ol' rabbit ears, and got everything fine, except for these two channels. I switched to the antenna listed above, and I get the 4.2, just having lots of probs with 4.1

The weirdest thing? I live 4 miles from their antenna, and it is pretty much an unobstructed view. Its the closest of all the local stations to me.

Suggestions?

Thanks

Could you describe what you mean by 'prob(lem)s'? Do you mean digital ghosting (which would mean a multipath problem, an attenuator may help there)? dropouts? or what?

First verify that 4.2 is fine. If so, it is usually a problem with the encoder at the TV station. Call them and let them know. Ask for the engineering department. It's very likley that your receiver is more prone to the problem than most. Older Zenith/LG tuners and the MyHD card are known to be fussy with issues in the MPEG2 stream.
