NOTE: Put YOUR LOCATION in the TITLE of ALL antenna threads & TVFOOL info in 1st post

Doing these two things will help you get faster help and improve searching for the next guy.

Other tips to those seeking antenna assistance appreciated. Only posting this because every thread seems to go 7 or 8 posts deep asking the same questions. If we can get those handled in the initial post, I think we can help new members far more rapidly.
 
Oh, and put in a tvfool LINK, not an image. Your address won't show on the link. The location you put in your title needs to be specific. "Central Florida" won't work. "Ocala" would be much better.

If you don't have a high enough post count to put in the link, PM me and I'll do that for you.

Thanks

Doc

It also helps tremendously to include details that might not even seem relevant.

Location of antenna. Roof? Attic? Height?
What make and model of television are you connecting?
Set top box? make and model, please, if any.
HTPC? Need to know what kind of tuner card you're using. Make and model.
Length and type of coax. (Hopefully RG-6)
Pre-amp. Make and model.
Domicile. Apartment? Ground floor? Valley? Hill? Facing which direction?
Nearby buildings.
Nearby towers. Cellular? AM? FM?

The more details that are in YOUR FIRST POST, the faster you'll get help.

FYI I tried to put the link in my first post, but since I am a new here, I can not. I think it said that you have to have 5 posts before you can include a link.

Then post "dummy" posts to reach the requisite number. We're used to it.

It's unfortunately necessary due to hit and run spammers.
