Well, I've finally joined the HD age, having picked up a Samsung HC-R4755 with stand at Sam's Cub (can't be beat for the money, IMHO). (Watching MNF in HD right now, wow!
Spent the better part of the weekend fooling aroundwith my antenna installation. Tried the attic first, no luck. Now I have it mounted to my Chimney, so its the highest point of my house. (I first had an old antenna, and then swapped it out with a new one from Lowes, rated "BLUE" which is supposedly what I need according to antennaweb.)
PBS-HD comes in rock solid (no breakups whatsoever), but all the other digital channels have frequent break-ups (some worse than others). ABC-34 is fairly watchable, but still breaks up regularly. I'm wondering if the tuner in the Samsung is not up to snuff (which wouldn't be too surprising given the price of the set). I'm pretty sure the antenna is aimed correctly, so I wondering if a preamp would help.
Any comments/suggestions? (BTW, I live in Vestal off of Rano Blvd, about 2/3 up the hill).
