Absolutely - if you're local setup has most of the signals coming from (roughly) one direction then it's not that difficult. In this case the commercial solutions like Tablo would work too. But if...

Some notes on TVHeadend

A while back I came up with the febrile plan of putting USB tuners right on the back of two antennas and then using a network box to combine them into a single feed. This would eliminate any line...

I notice the new UI shows some of my channels in purple. That is, the entire entry is purple except for the direction, which is color coded as before.

I *think* this is because that channel is...

Right, and I guess that's why there's the whole "antenna trick" page on his site.

I'm sort of getting some of this, but I'm still a little lost about most of it.

Yes, but the various products out there aren't designed to work this way - with the exception of the older SD boxes anyway. MythTV, on the other hand, kind of assumes that's the situation - zero or...

First, antennas:

I used to get ION when I first set up the antenna. To do so I had to point the antenna to about 160 degrees, but then I also got all the Buffalo stations just fine. But nothing...

The antenna is a no-name, and I mean that literally there was no name on the box, at least in English. It is mounted very close to the peak of the roof using a J-mast. The antenna has a clear view...

Image of a log-periodic/UHF yagi combo

Does anyone have a good image of a "classic" TV antenna with both log-periodic VHF and yagi UHF portions?

Did you take it yourself, and are willing to release it into the public domain?

If so...

This is what I thought, and it is not covered on HDTVPrimer - or if it is, it is hidden in the discussion of combiners.

Try this…

1) select Oshawa, Ontario, Canada as your location
2) select "Pending" and wait for the list to appear
3) look for "CITY-DT(1)" and click the map gizmo (the color bullseye)
- doesn't...

I was using Maps to see what I could get in our Oshawa-area home. It comes up with many analog stations and only a few digital.

When I click "Pending" all the analog ones remain, and many more...
