We're on the westside (Bonny Slope area). I put a Winegard HD7694P antenna in the attic and still have occassionaly artifacts on KOIN (CBS). All other major channels ok (we really only watch the networks and OPB) - don't think I've ever seen a problem on any of them, at least during prime time. The TV Fool profile (attached) tells the story perfectly. Not sure why some other channels on the same tower are ok... maybe something to do with the particular antenna or wavelength (?).

I suspect the intermittent problems are due to scattering from trees. Maybe a higher gain antenna would help? We've got a reasonale amount of space in the attic, though I don't want to put some big ugly thing on the roof.

Any thoughts? Am I missing something?

Hopefully someone here can help me. I have been reading that there is an OTA receiver for DirecTv called the AM21. I currently have my Samsung HD tuner hooked up to my TV so that I can get RetroTV channel 27.2 to watch Doctor Who when they start broadcasting it next month. I'd like to get the AM21 tuner so that I can record through my DirecTv DVR. I have read that the only channels that AM21 will pick-up are channels that are in the D* database. So my question is, does anyone have any experience with the AM21 tuner? Do you know if I will be able to pick-up RetroTV?

Thanks!

KSLM-27 Salem/Dallas is a low power station that airs Retro TV on a sub-channel. The broadcast foorprint barely reaches the souther portion of metro Portland. http://www.rabbitears.info/contour.p...=1367311&map=Y

Wanting a strong FCC to say no to the Wireless lobby. Keep the tv broadcast band for ota television broadcasters.
