I'm new to this forum and thankful that I found it, as I'm new to broadcast TV after getting disgusted with cable TV rip-off tactics and "bundles."
Here's my problem: I'm installed a chimney mounted Antennacraft® HD850 Heavy-Duty VHF/UHF/FM Antenna from Radio Shack. My cable run is about 35 feet from antenna to TV and I'm using a direct cable connection to two TV sets.
One set is a new Sony 40" LCD Bravia and the other is a Viewsonic 24" LCD. All channels (I get around 20) come in great on both sets, EXCEPT WVIT Channel 30.1 NBC. The Sony receives this channel great with no issues, BUT the Viewsonic refuses to see the channel (and only this channel).
Initially, I thought the issue was with the cable run to the Viewsonic either being too long or that electrical interference, etc., was to blame. Not the case, since when I move it to the cable feed for the Sony it still doesn't pick up Ch 30, even after numerous attempts to scan and re-scan channels.
I suspecting that this is a tuner issue with the Viewsonic, but it is receiving 3.1, 8.1, 40.1, 57.1 very clearly, so it is not a UHF issue. Hope someone has insights which can help me.
