Question about Televison & Video
The benefit and functionality of a smart tv is derived as much from a good internet connection as from decent signal strength from the antenna.
The ideal height, type and direction of the antenna depends entirely on the signal strength available where you are and the length and type of downlead cable.
If the signal strength is poor it is generally better to use a high gain wideband aerial designed for fringe reception than to use a lower gain and a booster.
It is worth noting a booster can usefully help increase the strength of a weak but good quality signal but there is little advantage boosting a signal that is both weak and poor quality so it is best to obtain the best signal possible before considering a booster.
A low specification downlead can reduce the signal and gather interference causing a bad signal/noise ratio. Using a booster at the end of such a downlead will boost the interference as well as the signal - the best place for a booster is as close to the aerial as possible and masthead types are produced to avoid those types of problem.
It is best practice to use the highest quality downlead cable - double wrapped air spaced low-loss 75 ohm coaxial cable.

I could not find a "RCA model #27F350T", but there is a RCA model 27F530T, and according to the users manual for that TV, it is not Digital ready. You will need a converter box if you wish to continue receiving antenna based broadcasts. Your users manual can be found at the following link.

yes, mounting the sdv8622t/27 antenna higher will improve its reception. The more the antenna goes up, the better the reception it receives. There won't be any interruptions if the sdv8622t/27 antenna goes higher. So, it is better if you mount the antenna higher as you intend.
As for the booster, it is not okay for the booster to stay outdoors. The booster should remain indoor, while the antenna stays outdoor.
I believe this is clear to you now. If you still have any more questions about your sdv8622t/27 antenna, please let me know as I would be please to respond to you.

blue screen means 'no signal' or 'signal level is too low' whereas black screen means that there's a signal. Check your antennae, do a factory reset to your unit and then try initial setup.
