Installation tips for a Cornet F-6454A indoor antenna to insure best results
I'm about to install the Cornet F-6454A indoor antenna and I'm interested to know if there are tips for insuring the best antenna results. For example, the location relative to the TV, windows, does positioning it high or low matter, distance from other electrical devices? Just want to make sure before I redesign the room without having to.

What I would try is replacing the co-ax cable from the antenna with the best quality you can find (not cheap), and make it as short as possible, then connect the amp. to this, then use another length of HQ co-ax from amp. to TV or recorder (if you are using one). In my own set up, I have two aerial amps, one for TV, one for DVD recorder, to ensure the best possible quality signal to each.
Some official firmware of TP-LINK products can be replaced by the third party firmware such as DD-WRT. TP-LINK does not provide technical support and does not guarantee the performance and stability of third party firmware. Damage to the product as a result of using third party firmware will void the product's warranty
You need to subscribe to cable or satellite. OR try an HD OTA (over the air) antenna. For best results you should get a directional antenna and point it in the direction of your nearest transmitter.
Indoor HD antennas don't work well unless you are very close to the transmitting tower. You really want to be on the roof, as high as practical without tall. Here is a fantastic resource that will tell you all you need to know about antennas
If you have multiple transmitters that you want to pick up you may want to use an antenna rotor that will allow you to point the antenna in the direction of the transmitter without the hassle of climbing onto the roof.
I'm sure there are local antenna installers if you are uncomfortable with climbing your roof or running the wire.
Best recommendation is - don't install it. This stove was manufactured originally by Martin Industries. They were a very good company. I did business with them for 10 years. However, they have been out of business for 5 years, now. In addition, that old a stove does not meet the current EPA, NFPA or Home Owners Insurance standards. It's efficiency rating is less than 60%. Although the stove may look new, in the end, it won't be what you expected. It was good in it's time, but now, depending on where you live, it can't be legally installed
One other word of caution. If you do decide to proceed with the installation, check with your Home Owners Insurance carrier, to see if they will cover a loss, as a result of a wood stove. Many won't.
I don't know in what area you live & therefore how strong your reception area will be, but as a general rule an indoor antenna is never the best type of aerial to have to receive digital signals, you will always find that you pick up some good strong channels but more often the rest of the channels will be poor or non-existant & will constantly break-up/freeze etc. The best advice would be to try & fit an outdoor antenna if possible.
rf cables will work fine for older tvs. newer tvs should use the composite (yellow, red and white cable) to produce a digital picture and sound. FYI the indoor antenna works best when positioned in a window. Best thing to do is install an outdoor antenna in the attic near the gable vent or on the exterior of the house.
