Just put an antenna in the attic and am getting every DT channel in the Dallas metroplex. Only one pixelates. Signal strength ranges from about 50% down. Is this the norm for this receiver or do some get stronger signals?

About 8-9 bars is the maximum signal strengh the Samsung will display and thats if you are real close to a strong station without a preamp. Its equivalent to 100% on other receivers. It will lock with a very weak signal, even below 3 bars however. Getting the antenna out of the attic may increase the signal level quite a bit, in some cases you lose over 1/2 the signal level in there. Try it outside. Also pixelation if caused by multipath may be reduced outside. Also use a very directional antenna to reduce multipath effects.

Thanks DonBerg, I did notice how easily it locks on even a weak signal. I am ordering a Weingard HD7082P which is a large directional that I'm sure will do the job.
