Anybody having issues with KTTV the last few days? I'm getting some major break-up. Monday's recording of North Shore was unwatchable. Last nights 8:00-10:00 was the same. I'm using a MyHD MDP-120 as the tuner.
Signal strength is decent, ranging from 25-49, bouncing all over the place last night. Just now I was testing, and strength was 0, then bounced up to 49. Right now it's jumping from 32-49. And just now dropped to 0. It MUST be on their side for it to be bouncing around that much, right?
The antenna is in the attic and came with the condo. I was just up there trying to locate some sort of brand/model number, but all I see is a tag saying made in USA. It's fairly large, and would have to be a VHF/UHF model.
I get excellent strength on 2, 4, & 5, with 7 generally between 35-40. (And only occasional breakup.) KCET varies, consistently at 49 right now, but I've seen it get down to 18 or less and breakup to the point of being unwatchable., (All chanells referring to HD.) Don't get 66 (UPN) at all. (And don't care.)
Would an amp help? I was looking at the Radio Shack site, their current in-line amp would be difficult to connect, because the cable from the antenna is split in the attic, and goes to 2 seperate rooms. You can't have a splitter between the power injector and the amp, though.
I'm in Irvine, Walnut/Jeffrey area. I refuse to pay COX's extortionist prices just to get HD.
Sorry for the ramble, any comments/suggestions welcome.
