Can't help you specifically but I just installed an open box Zenith HD420 (same class as the SIR 151) and haven't had any problem using a cheap pair of amped rabbit ears from Radio Shack (dipole VHF, helix UHF). I'm further northwest, about 3200 north and 1800 west.


I did notice the first few times I did the automatic channel scan, I got nothing. I thought I had a bad box, too. The third time it worked and all signals are around 80-90%. Telemundo or Novicias or whatever drops out occasionally but everything else is good (except Fox WFLD-DT that conveniently dropped the day 24 was on, grrr). My signal strength varies noticably, not just on or off like yours sounds like. Maybe check your coax connections?


I'm on the third floor, antenna is indoors. From my roof (top of 4th storey) I have a line of sight to Sears, Hancock, etc.


FWIW, ABC 7-1 HD is the best looking channel along with WTTW-DT (PBS).
