My name is Tony, I have a problem receiving clear over the air DTV. I live in a valley and reception has always been poor. The nearest station is around 30-40 miles. I do have a tv that has a digital tuner with a regular mast antenna. There are also two inline amplifiers. Is there any product that you recomend to get a better signal. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Get an amplified antenna, for about 30$ from radioshack and try that, you get no guarantee that you will get stations at all, you can get channels in one spot and two inches away get nothing so a lot of thing affect your reception, with dtv it's gonna work or its not, no more fuzz or semi pictures like analog. Your home may have crappy reception period- but the amplified antenna should get you something- if you get a picture be sure to leave the antenna where it is, moving furniture and other conductive materials can affect your reception also....too much to even write here this is a big subject---try what i have suggested and let me know if it works... good luck
Having weak signal are the most usual cause of not having it memorize in your flat panel TV channel when you re-scan to tune your flat panel TV. You will need a strong antenna receiver if you are trying to received a terrestrial channels. If still you got weak signal, you will opt to use an antenna booster, you need to get assistance from TV technician about doing this. Changing flat panel TV will not help, until unless the TV is equipped with strong tuner receivers (boosted type)
Hi, Unfortunately with most indoor DTV antennas you will need to move the antenna by hand for the strongest signal for each channel if, if one comes in worse than the others. If you have the set top DTV converter they sometimes have a signal strength meter to help with this. They also sell a DTV antenna that moves by itself for best reception for each station. I think it's about $60 at the Radio Shack. thanks for asking FixYa, I hope this was of some assistance, good luck-Prodzilla

nnealrs1998, The remote control may need new batteries. The remote will not receive any information from the tv. The tv needs to receive commands from the remote control. Find where the Receiving "EYE" on the front of tv is and make sure it is dust free so it can see the Infared light signal being sent by the remote. Always point the remote directly at the front of the tv set. Hope this helps. 12fixlouie
I would guess that you are using either cable or satellite for reception. If that is the case, the signal is already a "digital" one. The digital reception you are attempting to receive is the over-air broadcast signal that was implemented recently. This change-over only effected those using external antenna connections. Cable and satelite systems have not changed.
Had the same problem. Digging through the manual I came across a paragraph (at the top of page 24 - DTV Features) saying "if you have selected DTV then it will only display the DTV menu. (I didn't actually select DTV - we can't even get DTV in our area, but the ASP programduring startup appears to have set it!
You have to press the Volume +/- buttons on the remote, then the Input button and it will bring up the input menu. There you can select a different input. Once I did this, I found it had both my TV channels tuned and my satellite channel!
Now my problem is I can't control on/off or volume with the Sky controller - which is why I'm trawling the forums!!
