I live in the country, and we dont have cable tv. Satellite is far too
costly for the person who only watches a a few hours of tv per month.
(Which is me). Anyhow, I installed a small compact antenna on the side
of my house a few years ago, but it was limited on the amount of
stations it got. Last year I got an actual rooftop antenna, and put it
as high as was practical. It gets many more stations, but it's more
directional, so I lack one station I got on that compact antenna.
I know I could install a rotor, and that would solve the directional
aspects. But these digital tv's need to do the "channel search", to
locate channels, which means that everytime I rotate the antenna, I'd
have to re-run the channel search on the tv. (There is no way to lock
stations). [For example, if i get channel 10 with the antenna pointing
North, and lose it's signal when the ant. points East, the tv will
eliminate Channel 10 when I do a rescan.].
I'm wondering what would happen if I connected BOTH antennas to the same
TV? I recall trying this on the old analog tv's, probably 30 years ago,
and got a lot of ghosting in the picture. But digital TVs dont get
ghosts, so I'm just wondering what would happen ?????
If I had a coax TEE in hand, I'd probably just try it, but I'd have to
buy one first. I know they are only a couple bucks, but why buy it if
it wont work.....
Has anyone done this?
