I too live in Cranberry (it seems a lot of us on this thread do), and I was wondering, what model indoor antenna do you have and amp also, what receiver. I would like to mimic your setup to see if it works for me. (I live near the Traco window plant).
i am using the sylvania srz3000 (i believe that is the number, its the only digital tuner sylvania makes i'm pretty sure) tuner and an rca amplified indoor antenna (i can't remember the number, but its sold at wal mart for about $30). if you are interested in the sylvania tuner i would check ebay, i ended up getting it for about $75.
when i first used this tuner i got everything but the wb and abc. however, after moving the antenna to the top of my two story townhouse and scanning channels again i got abc to come in. i brought the antenna back downstairs and found a spot where abc still comes in and the antenna is only a few feet away from my tv. where this antenna is placed now i get cbs, abc, nbc, and pbs at 95 signal stength and abc comes in at 85-90 signal strength and i never have to move the antenna at all, everything comes in perfectly how it is set.
my hd tivo arrives tomorrow and i have read that the OTA tuner isn't as good so i am hoping i still get all these channels after the changeover from armstrong to directv. since the OTA hd channels come in at such a great power it was an easy decision to make the switch to directv with their 4 months of programming free and the sunday ticket package... and with the hd tivo (which for a new customer i got for $300 less than the SRLP) i can record all the OTA hd channels, and since it doesn't look like FOX will be added to armstrong any time soon this was another point in directv's advantage.
oh, i live just off of haine school road i wouldn't think our locations are that different so i think you should be able to get all the same channels i do with that equipment.
now if i could just get the WB OTA, i would love to record Lord of the Rings in HD in Nov.
