Just snagged the Radio Shack "UFO" 1892 antenna. So far I am satisfied with it right out of the box, though the channel/frequency selection is confusing to me.
The antenna is connected into a TiVo HD. The cheesy manual for the antenna says you have to program the best position for each channel. This way when you change channels on the antenna, it will re-orient itself. Well this is a stupid thing to do, since I change channels through the TiVo and not on the damn antenna.
So far I've settled for an antenna position of 8, with gain at 1. This seems to give the best average performance across all the channels. Problem is that one of my favorite channels is only mediocre at that setting.
Did I just buy the wrong antenna? Do I need something more directional that doesn't have gimmicky controls?
