LenL - the issue last time was not one of RF signal strength or quality, but had to do with the Program and System Information Protocol (PSIP). That's part of the encoded information that is being broadcast, and apparently there were some changes made that impacted some tuner circuits that are built-in to certain TVs and DVRs. In such a case, it wouldn't matter what antenna system was being used because the problem was with the encoded signal. It's analogous to you hearing somebody loud and clear, but if you don't speak the same language, the message isn't going to get through.
That's why I asked what *MAKE and MODEL* of TV and/or DVR you were using. That info can tell me what tuner circuit is used in the device, and we can figure out which tuner circuits are impacted and which are not.
Regardless, thanks for responding on the NJTV 50.1 reception question that I asked. I'm still having problems with it, and I'm about to go and re-aim a second, unused UHF antenna towards Trenton to see if I can pick up NJTV on WNJT 52.1 (real 43).
