Hope this helps
Thanks EngDave. I read that on your site wmctv.com. Just looking for a little feedback from users.
Also solid signal.com recommended a different type after giving them my situation and conditions. In the attic and 17 miles from the antenna. (38672)
I'll take your response as enough info for me to buy your suggestion.
It looks like I lost channel 5 last night over QAM. Great just in time for Thursdays prime time line up.
Does anybody know if it was remapped?
I can't wait to get an antenna. I just hope I actually am able to tune in 5. Why oh why does that station have to be so hard to get???
I'm a local Memphian and have been a channel 5 favorite for life. NBC programming, Joe Birch (family, friend), Dave Brown is the man! Lance Russel, Jack Eaton, Ursula Madden. The fine engineering staff that bring us THE BEST image quality in town, while the others play catch up.
I even use to attend Wrasslin in studio back in the 80's! I was 5-10 years old BTW. I just feel like I am having to jump through hoops to get it tuned in. Its always just out of grasp. Be it QAM or VHF.
Sorry for the rant. Just really frustrating because I cancelled my Directv as of Oct. 1 and I still don't have a solid handle on my programming. Switched to an HTPC with two AVerMedia AVerTV Hybrid Volar Max MTVHBVMXR tuners by the way.
My Insgnia Branded LCD TV, and Olevia TV tunes the WMC QAM just fine. It appears its my AVerMedia AVerTV Hybrid Volar Max tuners on my HTPC. I will attempt another
