What is odd is that the the problem is very intermitent. I had no tv for two days, the one morning it was working fine.
Last weekend I started getting digital artifacts and when I turned on the box on monday morning it now has 0 signal and cannot locate any channels.
I'll check out some antenna forums, but could an overload burn out the tuner over the course of a week or two?
Has this problem "just started".. Or have you just got the box?
Q: you say you only get (2) channels, sub channels on the same freq. Do you mean you're only getting two channels on the same station?
Anyhow... It is quite possible:
1: Station is having problems
2: Box is dying
3: Box is crap (Do you have a friend that you could borrow a box from?)
4: There are atmospheric conditions working against you.
(At least in Michigan this time of year there shouldn't be many leaves on the trees.)
I'd go to http://www.tvfool.com
search for the stations...
THEN POST a LINK to the info TVFOOL shows..
You may find instead of LOS, you are getting signals 1Edge, 2Edge, or Tropo.
Another suggestion is to take box OUTSIDE, do a scan.
Another course of action is to take the box to say a friends house, or take a little "trip"....hook up to a portable tv at other location to see if the box is "working".
