Hi masaki h,
I am happy to help.
It is almost impossible to tell how well an antenna will work . It depends on atmospheric conditions, distance to the broadcast tower and a number of other factors.
The new flat antennas look nice and should work fine but your best course of action is to buy from a store with a liberal return policy. Places like Walmart will take the antenna back for any reason as long as you have an reciept.
Somtimes a cheap set of rabbit ears work as well as a expensive amplfied antenna.
I say give it a try and if not acceptable return it and try another one. I have provided a link to a site that will explain more about DTV and antennas. http://www.antennaweb.org/aw/welcome.aspx
Please rate this solution and please keep in mind that any rating except FixYa is a negative to my rank here

I experience the same thing on a day to day basis. The key, is location of the antenna. Depending on where your antenna is located, determines if u can recieve local CBS analog v. digitial. I actually tried sticking aluminum foil to my old rabbit ear antenna legs. to my surprise, I even picked up digital channel I never knew existed. Besides, when the signal transmit in Digital, u are already prepared. Your local CBS afilliate station will be accesable on maybe 2 or 3 channels. example:
Channel 10 analog
Channel 10-1, 10-2, 10-3 digital HD will all broadcast the same programming.
hope this helps u out.

We're still hanging on by our toenails waiting for a helpful response from FixYa. We did contact Philips tech support and they basically said that we need a new TV...so they're sending one to replace this one, and we are sending back the "old" one (that we just bought in December '08).

Take the set and reprogram it where one of the other sets are ok. Digital signal is not so forgiving as analog, also place one of the sets that is receiving that station in place of the not receiving one. It's possible that the signal level at the bad spot is on the border line and that model can't hold on to it. You may also check visio's web site for any software up grade to your model that you may have to down load.
