Question about Craig Televison & Video
15" craig hdtv lcd won't get any channels using rabbit ears in a room where I don't get cable.
Welcome to the world of off-the-air broadcasting!
First, be sure you have the TV set up correctly and that is in fact capable of digital tuning. Just because a set was sold as HDTV doesn't mean it has a digital tuner. Small TV sets weren't required to have digital tuning until shortly before the switch from analog. This set may require a digital adapter. If the set does have digital tuning, be sure you have "air" selected and not "cable" for your tuning mode. Also let the set scan for channels.
With digital broadcasting, signal strength is critical. In the analog days, a weak signal would give you a fuzzy picture, but you could see something; with digital, a weak signal means you see nothing at all. You may live in an area where the signal is too weak without using an amplified indoor antenna or putting one on the roof. Your location, other structures around and weather conditions all affect digital reception as well. Many people were (and still are) upset to find that they just couldn't get any channels at all once digital broadcasts took over.
I hope this has been helpful. Thanks for using Fixya!
