I bought the Terk amplified low-profile antenna for $55. After setting it up in NE Minneapolis at 35th and Central(65), i9t would recognize the channels durring "quick Setup" with some channels with bad reception and even snow in the picture. After it went through and saved the channels it would onlt give me 2 chqannels to choose from but the picture would blink with terrible reception. Moving the slider didn't help at all. The location is on the 2nd floor with a big picture window 20' away. The location of the apartment is in a slight hill bottom. Do I need the stronger amplified Antenna?
I took the TV, a westinghouse LCD set to Eden Prairie to test and while I get great reception, I only get locals and 2 TPT channels. I was told there're more to get OTA. How do I check if it's recieving VHF or UHF signals, could this be the problem of not many channels?
Is there a better option for an HDTV antenni that Best Buy carries? Help with both questions apprecieated.
