What antenna works on Toshiba 20VL43U? I purchased Mediasonic Homeworx HW110AN Super Thin Indoor HDTV Antenna - 25 Miles Range.
I recently went through a whole song & dance about HDTV antennas for my RV. I bought two different directional high-gain antennas, only to find that they wouldn't even receive signals at my home! When I'd reorient the antenna and initiate another channel search, I would sometimes get ONE or TWO channels... then I'd lose them when I'd try to reorient the antenna.
What I figured out is that DIRECTIONAL HDTV ANTENNAS ARE, ESSENTIALLY, WORTHLESS. There is really no way of knowing precisely which direction the broadcast towers are and, even if you knew, they will not all usually be clustered in one small area... they may be scattered here & there around your area.
What I eventually did is bought an OMNIDIRECTIONAL HIGH GAIN ANTENNA, which was no more expensive than the DIRECTIONAL antennas I tried. Did a channel search, and got almost all of the channels in my area!
Any omnidirectional HDTV antenna will work with your television, but I'd recommend buying the one with the highest GAIN (expressed in "dB" or "dBi" with the highest number being best). Try to find a POWERED antenna with an internal SIGNAL AMPLIFIER.
Also, if you live far away from broadcast towers as I do, you may wish to consider adding an additional SIGNAL AMPLIFIER as well.
