Tv Reception

Old farm house , wood frame / wood siding , very good. Living room south side of house is the best place. As a test of Digital Tv Reception , I suggest one of these indoor antennas . Try to get the antenna up and away from electronic and electrical devices, do not bury it in with the VCR , DVD player , Tv , Converter box , Stereo , Video Games box , move the antenna away from these interference causing devices. The antenna will receive broadcast Tv better when the antenna is in the clear. Do Not bury the Digital to Analog converter box. If you do not have a digital to analog converter box. A very good digital to analog converter box is the Channel Master CM-7000 ,or CM7000PAL , , . . Extend the rods of the antenna out and have the rods of the antenna more or less horizontal to a 'V' patteren and rods broad side to the Tv transmitters at about 140 magnetic compass reading. Thats in between channels 13 and 20 of the current database. Also read this about Real Digital Tv Channel and Virtual Digital Tv Channels , If you do not have a Digital to Analog Converter Box , you can also go Target or Walmart get a converter box to test with. The Tv transmissions are strong at your location , the indoor antennas should work fine.
