It would have been even better if you had posted both problems on the Help With Reception thread where more people would see them:

What steps have you taken? If you are willing to share that information about how you were able to improve your reception maybe we can learn something from it.

I addressed your NEW issue on your AVS ihread. Did you see it and read it?:
Did you find that my answer for your NEW issue about differences in tuner sensitivity had no merit?

I have 5 Sony TVs, and each has a Diagnostics Screen giving signal strength, SNR and uncorrected errors. I have made tuner sensitivity tests of all 5 using a professional signal level meter (SLM), so I have a good understanding of the differences in tuners.

Did you find that my answer about switching TVs to see if it was the TV or the signals to that TV location had no merit?
I also said that NBC on WMFP has been scaled to 720P. Did you see that?
I don't think you have made enough tests yet to jump to that conclusion.

When I bought my Sony KDL22L5000, the BestBuy tech said that the L5000 series had a better tuner than the L4000 series.
I know in some forums people get pretty upset if you post a different question under the same topic or in the wrong forum section. I was trying to as best I could place this. I didn't when posting think it was a signal issue as the content comes in, to me it looked more like a TV issue but I am no expert.

To improve signal I just tilted the antenna some and played with the rotator to dial it in. The signal is not as strong as WHDH was but it does come in at least while the leaves are off the trees in the northeast.

On AVS I saw a reply from "Otto Pylot" was that you? The reply mentioned tuner anomalies which if that was the case I didn't think there was much I could do to correct.

I have not swapped TV's but the Samsung TV I have is in the office next room over which has just as long of a coax run and no issue. Still I will try swapping and report back.

I also took a video last night with the diagnostics screen up. You can see the video slow down and then skip a few frames to catch up multiple times in the short video.
