Will the Philips Silver Sensor Work?http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...indoor+antenna
Yes. I recently tried the Silver Sensor PHDTV1 again, and took it back to the store. It did a couple of channels really well...but where I live, local TV stations are situated 12 to 23 miles away in five different directions. I really wanted to have the Silver Sensor be the solution
- it's an incredibly logical design, but for my residence, it isn't. The risk of tipping over was a real concern, particularly since my two CECBs are propped on top of loudspeakers and could be yanked down to the floor when the Silver Sensor fell.
I will say my second attempt using the Silver Sensor, the fit and finish were somewhat better than the first sample.
P.S. When I first picked up a $9.99 TriQuest Model 8040 Amplified Indoor Antenna at Big Lots, it seemed promising, but the unit really isn't competitive in terms of resistance to interference, signal fade, and multipath. I might send a picture for anyone who's really interested - again, it MIGHT work at your location, but once the novelty wore off of getting a new amplified antenna for $10, it was a disappointment.
