I'm renting a house with outdoor antenna on the roof. The TV connected to the antenna is clear when the antenna is in 'good' mood. When it's windy, the antenna 'moves' & the pictures became unclear. I'm afraid to get to the roof top to 'fix' the antenna, what should I do? (BTW, I don't need extra channels so setalite dish is not an option, just the few we get for free is more than enough)
Well what your problem is the antenna is not secured well enough to the roof. You really only have a couple options, you can secure the antenna better or just live with the fact that when it is windy your channels will be fuzzy.

Purchase your UHF/VHF antenna. The antenna can also be purchased at most electronic and retail stores. Consult your list from Step 1 and see how powerful the over-the-air signals are for your specific address. Purchase your antenna based on the broadcasting power you need to receive a clear picture on your TV. You might be able to get away with an indoor antenna if your signal strength is strong enough. If not, you'll need to purchase an outdoor antenna.
4 Install your antenna (or have it done professionally) according to the building codes of your area. If you must use an outdoor antenna, it is a good idea to have the antenna professionally installed. This ensures that it is properly grounded on your roof, not too close to electrical wiring and stable during inclement weather.
5 Hook the converter box up to your television using the cable that came with it (F Cable). Hook your antenna up to the converter Box. Turn on your TV and converter box. Tune your TV to channel 3 and press "Scan" on the digital convert box. Allow the box to scan for your available channels.
6 View your picture and adjust your antenna accordingly for the clearest over-the-air feed. You should only need to make adjustments once. If you are having a difficult time getting a clear picture, use a signal strength indicator to see where you receive the most powerful signal.
Hi Patrick, A fuzzy signal on a plasma TV is not common anymore as with the lack of analog TV transmission the signal is either there or it is not. A amplified HD TV antenna is not always a solution and often times to get a good HD type reception a good outside antenna is required. I have two $100 antennas high up on my roof and still you can get a loss of data stream when the weather is bad. I also use distribution amplifiers to feed several TV's In the case that the picture is fuzzy but still there it might be a resolution setting that is wrong so hit the menu button on the remote and see if that display is clear- if it is then try setting a different resolution for the input that you are getting fuzzy signal on.
Please, start thinking of "outdoor" HDTV antenna installation. You must of be in use of TV's SD tuner and "rabbit ears" or so. Only outdoor or "roof" antenna will solve your issue. Unless you have another option: satellite, cable, verizon? Check with them, first. Need antenna? Call Alex's Television.
You heard is correct. Your roof antenna can be connected to your TV, after connecting it to a balancing coil adapter, usually called 'Balun Adapter" which converts the impedence from 300 to 75 Ohms. It can be bought for most of the electronic shops all around. Connect the antenna wire to it and then plug it to your TV antenna in socket. The stations will be very clear, and well defined. You may have to turn the roof top antenna towards the direction of the transmitting tower to get a well defined, ghost free image. OK.
try a outdoor antenna on the roof for digital signal use.also the main digital PCB is defective which has the tuner on it if the antenna does not work.you may try taking the
tv to a friends house and see if the tv works better.
Indoor antennas have very limited capabilities especially in areas with elevation changes and heavy tree cover. Ideally, you should put an outdoor antenna on your roof or the highest elevation you can find with a relatively short distance to the TV. Make sure it has a good UHF section as this is where all digital broadcasts will be sent by the broadcasters as the digital transition occurs. You might try an amplified indoor antenna for better results than what you have now, but its no substitute for an outdoor antenna.
