Now I use a Channel Master 4 bay with the same pre-amp in the attic of a two story house.
WBTV drops out on me here in Davidson. It makes it look like a bad 3:2 pulldown or something. Win MEdia center doesn't have a very good signal strength indicator, but the fusion 5 I have shows the signal dropping from 65 to 85. The other regular stations seem to be fine as they usually sit around 100% to 90%. Would a Channel Master amp help me in this situtation? I have a terk TV32 mounted outside on a tree (it's a dead tree that's been cut down, except for the last 12 feet or so, making a good place to put my antenna out of the way)
I can't turn it more into the signal without it pointing directly at the house. I have it pointed between the 2 main clusters of towers, according to antennaweb.
Any thoughts on a preamp? I have the naga 42 sceptre on the way to me in a few weeks, and I'd like to be able to record csi and now the unit with ota as opposed to directivo and standard def. I'm using the Fusion5 with a media center pc with about 400gigs to act as a second tivo, as after 4 years with my tivo, I could never give it up.
I cant go cable out here, as nothing reaches me, so the ota is about my only choice. I have D*TV(is that the right abbreviation or is it D*, it's a direc tivo?)
I'm obviously just getting into the HD world, but from my experience so far, it's a lot of fun.
Sorry for the rambeling and thanks for the help.
