As you can see from the pictures of my Y10-7-13, the installer put it about a foot below the CM4228.

Tony... For reliable reception that's good during good and poor conditions, I'd suggest an antenna with some gain. Something like the Antennacraft Y-10-7-13 that I have would work well for both...

I noticed the automatic changes a long time ago when KCSM added their 16:9 screen on 60.3. Since then several other local stations have added 480i 16:9 sub-channels mixed in with 480i 4:3. KOFY 20,...
