Question about Samsung SIR-T160 DTV Receiver
My antenna is a standard rabbit-ear model capable of HD reception. I live in Scottsdale, Az, on the second floor of an apartment complex that only has 2 story apartments. All of the broadcasting antennas are located approximately 18.3 miles directly south of my apartment on South Mountain, with nothing in the way except for urban structures. The only urban structures imbetween me and the receivers are apartments and businesses that are approximately the same height. I get 0% reception when using the HD box diagnostic tool. When switched to analog mode, almost every channel is fuzzy except for 1 which is fairly clear and uninhibited. I tried even moving my antenna outside; the analog channel for fox 10 was clear but I still couldn't receive any digital broadcasts with a channel scan. I also tried manually inputting the digital equivelant for this station, which said it was up and running with no problems. Still can't receive anything. I realize an outdoor channel master would be best, but because I live in an apartment I cannot post one. Would an outdoor directional antenna work even if I can't see over the buildings across the courtyard? If not, what antenna model would be best? I've tried reading reviews but cannot seem to find a helpful one.
