I live in Monona which has A LOT of old oak and elm trees. Because of the trees I can't receive the local channels from Direct TV. So, I have an OTA antenna which feeds into my Samsung HD receiver. Channel 3, 15, 21, and 27 come in great, but channel 47 is very, very iffy. Quite oten I get a message on screen that says, "Searching For Signal. Please stand by."
I had a pre-amp installed yesterday and I really thought that might make a difference. Was trying to watch Fox last night and finally gave up. Too much digital interference and then finally nothing.
Based on where I live, that just might be the way it's going to be for me. Normally I don't mind it, but during Packer season, it's a bit frustrating.
Any thoughts on Direct TV putting local programming and HD programming on satellites higher in the sky?
Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
