Up high is always good, but it depends on the location of your tv station towers. you may have to face it a few different directions until you get reception of the channels you want

What is the best method when using your antenna amplifier. Installing close to the antenna, or close to the tv? I have rca outdoor antenna mounted in the attic.

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.

I'm wanting to drop my satellite service. Will my projection tv pick up stations with a digital antenna?

Sorry but I've never heard of a DIGITAL ANTENNA, ALL antennas are ANALOG NOT DIGITAL, and yes you will be able to tune in some TV stations if you live close enough of TV stations that still transmit ANALOG signals, with a GOOD VHF/UHF antenna you can have good reception and viable TV time... (best of all it's FREE)

Good Luck!

What digital antenna does it need to recieve stations. there is no coax connector on the tv

You will need to get an HDTV converter box. You can purchase these at various location (Radio Shack, Best Buy, Wal-mart). As for the antenna, your selection should be based on the radial distance between your house and the TV station towers (line of sight distance from you to the tower). Antennas will have mileage information on the packaging for reference. Select an antenna which will meet your needs. There are a few good sites which offer web application to calculate your needs. Check out if you like. Hope this helps.

I tried connecting an RCA antenna to get digital stations, but the tv didn't recognize any of the digital stations on the scan. Any ideas?

its very difficult to get digital stations if youre using an indoor standard antenna , unless you have a SPECIAL DIGITAL ANTENNA for indoors , but I suggest an outdoor antenna , the higher ,the better to locate digital stations , AJ

Recently comcast converted all of its cable station to digital, and I am wondering if my RCA television is compatible. We are not getting channels. Model F316335B from 1995

If you connect your TV antenna input directly to the wall, you will need an on-demand box or a converter box from Comcast.

Do we need to buy an antenna to get this TV ready for Digital TV?

LCD TV refers to the substance that creates the picture quality (it would be either LCD or Plasma or Tube) and HD refers to a crisp clear picture that can be attained. So your TV is an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) TV that is capable of receiving and displaying HD (High Definition) Picture.

What you need to check for is whether the TV has a built-in Tuner. This will either be SD (standard definition) TV Tuner or an HD TV Tuner. The box it came in will tell you or you may still have stickers on your TV.

If it has a built-in SD tuner you will be able to pick up HD channels but in a lower quality. In this case you will only need to plug the TV into a Wall-socket antenna or rabbit-ear antenna.

If it has a built-in HD Tuner you will be able to pick up HD Channels in full HD quaility picture. Simply by plugging the TV into a Wall-socket antenna or rabbit-ear antenna.

If your TV does NOT have a built-in TV-Tuner then this TV is clasified as "HD Ready". Which means that you have to purchase a Set Top Box (STB). you can get either HD or SD set top boxes. In this instance you will plug the cable from the wall socket into the STB then from the STB into the TV using either an HDMI cable (as long as your TV has an HDMI input) or through RCA cables which will be coloured Green, Blue and Red (i think red)

By the Way - best picture quality is from a wall-socket antenna.
HDMI = High Definition Multimedia Interface
STB = Set Top Box
High Definiton RCA cables will also be refered to as YPbPr/YCbCr (depending on equipment)
LCD = Liquid Crystal Display (the method used to make the picture on your TV screen)

If you have anymore questions, ask away.

Smart antenna

Just because you got lots more channels with the old analog broadcasts, it doesn't mean you can get that many with digital. With analog, you could get a watchable picture from a distant station even if it was weak. It just meant the picture might be a little snowy or fuzzy. It's a lot different with digital.

Digital reception is pretty much "all or nothing". That means either you get the channel or you get a "no signal" message. If the signal from the antenna is too weak, unlike the analog fuzzy picture there is nothing at all.

10 channels isn't a bad number, by the way. A lot of people are finding they get far fewer than that, even no channels at all. It all depends on your distance and direction from the station. If you go to and click on "choose an antenna", they can help you determine what stations are on the air around your area, how far away they are, and what type of antenna would be required.

The "best" antenna is the one that gets the strongest signal from the most stations. For your specific location, this might be as simple as amplified rabbit-ears. Or it might mean a large rooftop antenna that you can turn to point right at the station. That option may not be available to an apartment dweller. You might just already have the best you'll get if you're getting 10 channels already.

NO channels now, we had some before!!!!!

Here is how you should have it connected.
1- Antenna (rabbit ears or whatever)
2- Converter box
3- Television

When you turn on the TV and the converter box, go to channel 3 on the TV. You should see the converter box signal there. If you do not see it try channel 4. Bring up the convert box menu and go through the AUTO SEARCH, not manual search. Now your box will search all the frequencies and add any stations that are in your area. Make sure you change channels with the converter box, not the tv. An antenna on the roof will still provide somewhat better range, but even rabbit ears will likely pick up something. If you still get no channels you could be too far away, digital signals have a shorter range than analog signals. You can check your local TV stations website or call to see if they are broadcasting digital yet.
