I'm just assuming you're running the latest firmware in all of your Sony televisions. I only say this because I bought three at a going-out-of-business for dirt because the internal tuners weren't...

I'd still start with a fresh run of cable with nothing in the line. And pick one antenna or the other, not both. Combining can introduce even more multipath. But, yeah, I'm guessing that building or...
