Though I am very happy I receive CT's ABC, NBC, Fox, PBS, and UPN (less us not forget I/Pax), I surrender to find more. I would be happier if I could get Channel 3 (33), and 20.
I have spent the month putting antenna's outside, in my 3rd floor, and settled for my attic for my outdoor antenna. I have to use a stupid Terk 55 in my office to get Channel 8. Well, it cannot be that stupid, as it is the only thing that will get 8. It only works in my office too.
I have tuned in many other channels, as far as NYC! Then the next day, they are gone! Since I am not savy, my best guess is Solar Flares taunt me.
Today, I have surrendered. I can only hang out windows, and my attic for so long. I have cuts, welts, abrasions, and a near death experiance. I will live with the fact that CBS is just moot. Sure, I could buy a new Channel Master system for over $100. Is this worth it to me for one channel? Nahhhhhh, I'll have to deal with a few shows on CBS I like on my SD-PVR.
Everything is set up, and will be left this way, as it works it's possible best. Now, after a month, I will enjoy watching this darn TV, instead of tweaking it. Not that it has not been fun.
I have tried to comprehend the theroy of antennas, but I just don't get it. I have been all over here, and google, I think I have seen it all. I can make a Wi-Fi Cantenna that sniffs the streets, but I am not a TV guy, I guess.
Thank you everyone for your posts. Even lurking, they made sense to my situation, in all areas of HDTV. I will continue to use this thread, and BBS often. Perhaps when I am less sore, and tired, I might want to try again.
Thanks again, I'll be around!
