Some TV's have poor amplification of the antenna signal, make sure you have a high quality RG6 signal cable, mount antenna with line of sight to TV tower as any obstruction can affect signal strength, AntennaPoint has directions you can use with a compass. If the signal is still low, try a HDTV booster amplifier. If the antenna is indoors, you need to move it around to find a hot spot that brings in all the channels (preferably in the attic).
Buffering on Netflix has nothing to do with the with the antenna, as you have to connect via the web to receive this service. In my opinion, TV's like Samsung are not very good with streaming video, and you are better off using some other device like an old laptop or external device hooked up to the TV to do this.

Turns itself off after being on for a while,but after about 20 seconds it comes back on automatically. I have a LAVA preamped antenna hooked to it. Is it the antenna or the analog board?


Try to set it up with no antenna, just the cable or wire as an antenna for a broadcast station. If you can just get 1 station then you can find out if the TV is turning off or the LAVA antenna.

If it goes out and comes back on it could just as easily be the power board.

Don't open it up yourself, there are hazardous voltages even with the TV unplugged!

Red antenna warning indicator light stays on


The red light is a warning of antenna mismatch; when you hold the antenna, you are changing the match between the CB's output amplifier and the antenna. Try it with a different antenna or pick up a 'test light' (or test load) for CBs from an electronics dealer, I've also seen them with CB accessories at truck stops. If the test light fires off and the red light on the CB is dark, the antenna you have is junk.

Im trying to watch full episodes on cbs.com and they keep stuttering or skipping


Could be your internet connection. A slow internet connection can cause this. Test your internet connection at www.speedtest.org Try starting the video and then pause it...see if it continues to load on the progress bar. This will allow the show to buffer. Could be the CBS server also. Try watching the shows on a lower resoloution. Check and make sure your motherboard and video card drivers are up to date. Make sure a virus scanner is not running when you are trying to watch a show...that will slow down your computer.

Using an over the air antenna I get all channels but one.


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.

Converter Box Problem


That just means that stations you can't pick up while the box is on are not broadcasting digital signals yet. Most will be after February.
