I just got my OTA antenna yesterday and I am very happy to get several channels. It dont seem very user friendly when trying to save the channels when I have to rescan at a different location. I seem to loose the ones that I had previously scanned. I finally figured you have to check the channels when you rescan but still seems like its easy to loose the scaned channels. Anyway I have all my channels written down. Any suggestions or tips to make things easier.

I'll have to give that a try also !
What happens to me:
I'll scan for the Chicago Stations and get them all loaded in,then I turn the House around and Scan for the South Bend,In channels. Turn the House back around to the Chicago area and lost some of the channels !
Thats exactly what happened to me. The thing about you have to put in the transmitter number and if a station has 3 channels on that transmitter it will automatically put them in just like the scan. The one thing I found out you have to have the signal before it will work. However there is at least a signal meter there.
