OTA - The Antenna is the Answer to Quality

Greetings Colleagues,

It has been awhile since my last posting. I have been busy with trying to learn one of Leo Kottke's acoustic guitar songs, which is a difficult task.

Usually, during this time of year, I post updated calibration settings for our HD television. However, quite by accident, I discovered something else that some of you may already know. My house is located in a valley where ota (over the air) reception is poor and I was advised that my reception could improve if I wrapped foil around my indoor HD antenna. I wrapped the foil around the rabbit ears and to my surprise the picture quality greatly improved.

I am not here to recommend the use of foil on your HD antenna, if you have one. I am here to say that if you have a quality HD antenna, which I may not have, you will probably see a better quality picture with OTA signals via antenna than those signals supplied by cable and satellite providers. My research indicates that OTA gives a better picture quality than Cable and Satellite providers because these providers "compress" the picture signal(s) to fit more HD channels into cable or satellite tv services. This "compression" impacts picture quality. OTA, via antenna, does not compress the HD signal and you should end up with a much better HD picture.

Now I have to find a better HD antenna.

Seasons greetings and have a happy new year!

Hi Vincentfan, there is an excellent forum on AVS on HDTV Reception OTA, and will likely include OTA users in your area. The forum also includes designs of excellent homebrew antennas which can be built using elements of solid copper wire out of a yard or two of Loomex house wiring stapled to a 2x4. And yes, you can use a tinfoil reflector (if it is spaced properly away from your antenna and you are doing this indoors) behind the antenna which reflects signals from the tv station back to your antenna for a second boost in strength.

You may also find cheap (as under $20) amplifiers at electronics surplus or liquidation stores to amplify the signal from your antenna.

I have used a combination of OTA for local, as well as over the web sources such as KODI which you can google to find for your tv or streaming box since I cut the cable and landline 4 years ago.

The BT.1886 Project - Movie Modes

Greetings Again Colleagues,

I am working on trying to mimic BT.1886 calibration standard, recently adopted in 2011, for our movie modes. This standard lowers the gamma curve from 0% to 30% ire measurements and suppose to provide some additional pop to the picture while watching movies in dark viewing environments. Also, the gamma curve between 40% and 100% ire is raised to 2.4. To accomplish this on our tv, I had to raise the brightness setting. It is an ongoing project and later I will post settings for both component and hdmi inputs. This tv does not have the newer easier technology today's tvs have for the BT1886 calibration standard.

If you would like to see a sample, here are some tentative settings for the component input:

“The Component Settings”
Component 1 Input
Recommended for OTA and Cable Box viewing

Movie Component
D65 BT1886 Standard

Movie mode
color tone WARM1
Picture size 16:9
cell light 10

brightness 59
sharpness 4
color 50
tint 48/52
Gamma -1
native color space
offsets Red 41 Green 42 Blue 49
Gain Red 43 Green 40 Blue 15
Edge Enhancement off, others off.
