I lost ALL of them. I used to listen to TV on my portable radio. So
now what am I supposed to do, get a converter box for my Sony portable
radio? Even the FM TV is gone! No more Judge Judy/Judge Joe Brown.
I frequently lose Channel 13 in the Pearland, Texas area and have to
Not sure if it is a converter issue or the station itself.
I found that an old Radio Shack outdoor antenna picks up all channels
I lost none and gained at least 15. Im 12-15 miles from stations with
a room antenna, look into a good outside antenna. Several sites have
an antenna program that will tell you what you need by your zip code.
Many stations are split into 3-4 channels, you should get more than
you had before.
Never had a converter box. Have an econo WalMart 27". Been watching DTV for
some time. Few new ones came in after 6/12. Not quite sure why but even
many of the the stations that came in, on digital, did not come in until I
rescanned. Ater 6/12 a couple of network stations posted they would be
transmitting at a reduced power for a bit. Didn't catch how long or why.
Pre & post switch, I've found DTV to be weather (I assume) sensitive. I
don't mean bad weather either.
Ayup...found it's worthless if there's any significant weather between
transmitter and antenna which makes the severe weather broadcasting
pretty much a lost effort for most of the areas that need it...
Have a set in my shop and one in the kitchen that are both on rabbit
ear type antenna. Both had trouble getting a good analog signal
without a lot of snow and spotty reception on digital. Had to rescan
after the conversion and now pickup a couple of additional digital
channels with all of the digital channels comming very clear without
signal loss now. If I lost any channels, they weren't ones that I
wanted to see anyway.
