Question about Leadtek Televison & Video
Hi, I hope you can help. As part of the digital conversion process, we just put up a new antenna yesterday (DigiTenna DUVF) which is UHF/VHF and is supposed to get channels 7-69 with a range of 60 miles. Our stations are all about 33 miles away (Madison, Wisconsin), many broadcasting from the same tower. We are using an amplifier. The stations we CANNOT get are (these represent a combination of analog and digital numbers) 3 (we understand this one- the new antenna doesn't pick up this one), 11, 47, 50, and 57. These are the lowest and highest numbers. The ones we CAN get are in between these (15, 19, 20, 21, 26, 27, 32, and 43) The channels that come from the shared tower are: 3, 11, 20, 21, 26, 27, 47, and 50. Some of these we now get, and some we don't. We are at a loss as to what else to do with the new antenna and new digital converter box in order to reach all the stations we should be able to do. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you very much. Laura Simonds
Dear Shoostar, 6:55 EST (USA)
It may be that those stations are only broadcasting in analog for now and since your using a digital converter the signal can't be read.
Did you try using the old antenna to get those stations?
If this is the problem you could use both antennas with a switch when you want to change channels for now until they all go digital.
I once used two antennas and a 4-pole switch to get Philly & New York from Jersey instantly back in the day.
I didn't like waiting for the antenna rotor to turn into place!
Hope this is helpful.
