I can't find the post where another Magnavox user had problems with their unit recording the wrong channel, but mine did the same. I set a recording for DTV 12.1 after analog 4. Got up the next day...

Yes, I would call that fringe. Especialy if you want Fox which is over 60 miles away. Almost all your channels are 2edge (multipath) and weak, except PBS. That link I posted has some other antennas...

If I were you, I would try the four bay antenna by itself first with just a cable to the TV. It may pick up VHF well enough by itself, probably not. If not then add VHF antenna, combiner, pre-amp,...

All of your main channels come from one direction and appear to be on UHF, so no rabbit ears are required. Just an old loop antenna or bow tie looking thing. How strong it needs to be depends on...

That's a little counter intuitive if you are used to using the menus, but simple once you know. I think I will use unfinalized dvds from now on so I can high speed dub.

That sounds like a monitor more than a TV. What model number, and does the manual say anything about having an ATSC or QAM tuner?

By the way a moderator may move this to the proper forum.

What they were saying is QAM and ATSC don't mix because they share the same frequencies. However, the low quality output over rf is only on channel 3 or 4. You need a converter in between.
