Question about RCA F25645 25" TV
I recently just bought a VHF/UHF/FM/HDTV Philips indoor antenna. I cannot pick up any stations, not even PBS. I checked AntennaWeb to see if I should be able to receive signals from local channels, and it said I was within 5 miles of all the broadcast towers. Also, to my knowledge, there aren't any structures nearby that would affect the signal. None of the local stations have switch entirely to digital signals yet so that shouldn't be a problem. I toyed with the rabbit ears for about an hour and got NOTHING. I've also toyed with the settings on the TV. I assume it's the TV settings or hardware. HELP

I don't know the menu system on your model, but you have to check that the tuner is in the proper mode. Also, some of the new TV set models cannot receive a standard analog TV signal from its tuner.
As for the distance from the transmitter sight, this depends mostly on the antenna quality, antenna location, the power output of the transmitter sight, compatiblity of the TV to the received signal, and also the capability of the TV's tuner.
Modern TV sets are really designed to be used with a satellite or cable TV box with their respective service.
Terrestrial TV is dying out, and in a matter of a number of years, it will be gone.
