Reception should be Ok , even without a amplifier , of the Tv stations in the Green and Yellow reception zones of the tvfool report.

As a Test of reception that will eliminate all possible defective components.

I recommend instal a.

http://www.antennacraft.net.

HBU11K antenna.

or

ANT751 antenna.

The HBU11K and ANT751 are the same type and kind of antenna by competing manufactures.

Aim the HBU11K or ANT751 at about 238 degree magnetic compass direction.

--------------------

Here is how to aim antennas , http://www.kyes.com/antenna/pointing/pointing.html.

Use a Real and Actual magnetic compass to aim antenna do not trust a , cell phone , tablet or etc. compass.

--------------------

Connect a NEW Continues Length of Coax to the New matching transformer and run the NEW Continues Length of Coax through a open door or window Direct to 1 Tv .

No couplers.

No splitters.

No amplifiers.

No etc. .

---------------------

Digital Tuners can develop -Digital Glitches- that are not cleared out with simple channel scans.

To clear tuner do Double Rescan.

------------

Also I am thinking the HDX1000 is installed at a location that is above the peak of the roof at a location that has the least amount to no amount of obstructions of any type or kind in the directions of reception , West , South West.

If so , then install the HBU11k or ANT751 at that location.

So that the HDX1000 can not interfere in any way , disconnect and remove all parts of the HDX1000 , Remove the antenna , Remove the power injector , Remove the power supply.

------------

What is reception like now??

------------

If reception is not Ok then interference of some type or kind is disrupting reception.

If reception is not Ok , there is the possibility that the Tuner of the Tv is defective.


----------------------------

Also know this.

As always , trees and tree leaves , plants and plant leaves , have a Negative Effect on Broadcast Tv Reception and so do buildings and other obstructions including your own , attic , roof , building , in the directions of reception.

Some and not all Negative Effects are.

Absorbing Blocking Reception.

Multi-Path Reflecting Tv Signals Bouncing All Around.

The Best Practice for Reliable Reception is to install the antenna at a location that has the least amount to no amount of obstructions of any type and kind in the directions of reception including your own , attic , roof , building.
