Here is my exprience with this TERK HDTVi antenna.
In short, this is POS. :) . Seriously.
I've used and tested many indoor antennas. Silver Sensor is still the best out there at this time.
I had a chance to help my cousin with an OTA HDTV setup. I told him to go to buy.com and get the same Silver Sensor as the one I am using, but they were out of stock at that time. He couldn't waid and willing to pay more, so I told him go to BestBuy and get one. He called me and told me no Silver Sensor but he found the Terk HDTVi similar to the SS and ask me if it any good. I had no clue at that time and told him just pick it up and I'll hook it up and try it. He paid $35 for this.
When I got to his appartment, I was impressed with the well buid quality and the nice looked of this Terk HDTVi antenna. I thought I will get one for my self to pickup some VHF channel that I couldn't get with my Silver Sensor. But when I hooked the HDTVi to the Samsung SIR-T151 that he bought used for a good price, couldn't even get a single channel. I didn't think this TERK HDTVi antenna is that crappy. It looks nice and solid. All I suspected was an defective used samsung box. It was so frustrated. And I decided to run home and bring my SIR-TS165 and the my SS to test to see if it is the antenna or the box.
Hooked my SS to his box. BAM. Everything came in ABC, CBS, PBS, NBC and other channels. What else can I say. My cousin was stunted. He didn't expect to get many channels because he live in the appartment building with many obstacles and is 25 miles from the towers in Boston, MA
For any of those are looking for an indoor antenna, I'd recommend getting the Silver Sensor.
This Terk HDTVi looks 10 times better than the Silver Sensor. It is more like a piece of sculpture art. It is good for a decorative, but not for pulling HDTV signals :) TERK, Can you make anything that works?
