So called digital antennas are generally a gimmick. The important factor to receiving stations is the antenna position and strength relative to the incoming signal. (Digital signals are either enough for the tuner or you get "no signal".)

Look at antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to find out what stations are likely to be received in your area and the direction to rotate the antenna; plug your address in the search area. Antennaweb is very conservative in its channel list even though it assumes an external antenna. Tvfool gives a list of the channels you should get with various antennas (labelled by color). This is a standard label that will be on the antenna specs or box (at least on good antennas). Tall buildings and trees in the area can reduce the channels you receive.

Adding an amplifier may help you gain signal strength for borderline stations (or if you split the signal to several devices).

I hope this helps.

(My house has an external antenna with an amplifier/splitter. Antennaweb suggested that we'd only get the stations from ~10 miles away. We get those stations and the ones from ~30 miles away with the antenna rotated for the further stations.)

    Assuming the other TVs were tested without moving the antennas, it could be a bad tuner with the tv. (Tuners do vary and some will require more signal to receive the stations.) Without knowing the antenna setup you tested, I can't rule out a weak signal issue.

    For an example of tuner variability, I have two tvs connected to a 4-way splitter amplifier and an outdoor antenna. When the antenna gets rotated by the wind, the primary tv receives a good signal. The second TV reads a bad signal strength. (Damage to the amplifier has a similar effect.) Cindy Wells

How do I hook up my digital cable to my ilo flat screen TV with out a box


It won't work because the tuner from your ilo TV will not be able to decode the digital signal from the cable company even if your TV has a digital tuner. The digital tuner on your TV will only decode over the air signals.
You will still need the digital cable box from the cable company.

Radio signal strength not very good


It is due to the vehicle antana. you need to purchase a antana booster. hook it to a 12v power plug antana from car to one side of booster and radio to other side. this will increase signal from car antana to radio and should fix problem. most boosters can be found at any car audio or truck stop and run from$10.00 - $25.00 good luck
