I finally jumped on the HDTV bandwagon and purchased the SONY receiver.
I took down the old beat-up antenna that came with my house and put up a new Radio Shack VU-190 XR. It was on sale for $49.00. The antenna is on a 10 foot poll on the roof and is pointed toward the ESB.
I live in Tenafly, NJ and my house is only about 10 miles from the ESB. The analog locals come in great, as well as 5.1 Fox HDTV. The problem is 2.1 WCBS HDTV, keeps cutting in and out. It will work for about five minutes and then loses the signal for a few seconds and then come back.
I guess what are my options? Do I try to play with the antenna to see if it is positions correctly? Do I get a pre-amp or amp? Do I get a larger poll or add a UHF only antenna?
Any advice would be helpful.
