They have change WSOC translator from 9.5 to 9.9. And 64.5 is now 64.9. But same program and still RF30. And they appear to have added program info which is nice.

The C2V should be adequate for the local Harrisburg/Lancaster stations. But a larger antenna and amp such as Winegard 7698 outdoors should receive Baltimore at 56 miles. DC would be a bit more...

I believe the HDB8X is the same as the MCM 8-bay version, which may be a bit cheaper. I think it is the same manufacture.

The TiVo Premiere can still be found on clearance at select Walmart locations. It is nice for offering 2 separate cable and antenna inputs, and nicely integrates the channel guide for both. The...

That same MCM FM trap is only .89 when ordered directly from MCM. And it is more of a full FM band filter than the Radioshack. And the Radioshack version is cheaper in the store, especially when they...

^^Since you are near Morganton, I guess you need a Charlotte antenna and a Greenville/Spartanburg/Asheville antenna. For Charlotte, perhaps a good UHF such as DB8e or 91XG. As you are probably too...

Well noise figure may not be the only issue. But if Channel 2 is WCBS from NYC, then they are actually RF33 on UHF, not VHF. And the LNA200 reportedly does perform better on UHF than VHF. But that...

The TiVo Roamio is an excellent DVR, and has a strong tuner. But it does not have dual antenna and cable inputs like the previous Premiere unit, so you would have to choose one source or the other,...

Most Charlotte area viewers can see Escape on WAXN 64.3. But west of Charlotte, 21.3 is now another choice, especially since 64 is more limited in that direction. But I do recommend 21.2 for Cozi TV,...

The LNA200 reportedly has a high noise figure on VHF, despite the lower noise claims. So that could be part of the problem, as well as an inadequate antenna. The LNA100 amp may be a better choice, or...

Glad to see the Sparc radios. Apparently iBiquity is now producing their own consumer HD Radios since no other manufacturers have been doing so in recent years.
