^^Whenever I hear the words Blonder Tongue it usually means big money. So I will play around with some splitters and diplexers, but not expecting great results. Ultimately we may look at drilling a...

I was wondering what panel is used on the 51F8500, particularly the recent builds. I have a 51E7000 that has a TS02 panel and outstanding picture. Just wondering about the F8500.

Yes return it and exchange. The 51F5300 is an awesome TV and a great value price. Get a good one before they are gone. They should all now be B models with TS02 panel.

You may want to consider a Clearstream 2V or 4V and have better luck. Aim for sweet spot between the Dallas and Charlotte towers. You are probably to close to the Clt towers to use an amp.

Perhaps the Mohu 50 amplified version would work better. But those Mohu antennas are not optimized for your VHF channels. I would consider a Terk HDTVa sold at HHG. It has rabbit ears for VHF, a good...
