I'm sorry if this has been answered previously but what are the current thoughts re: the state of antennas for OTA. I have seen indoor and outdoor but most talk about having to adjust seeming all the time. I have DNS service so don't so much need locals (which aren't offered) but the idea of being able to DVR the local news seems nice as well as some occasional high school football games.

I appreciate all responses. Sorry about the wordy thread title. Have a good one. :)

Start with somewhere in the latter part of last year or use the Search function....

I looked up a zip for Shadyside - got 43947

Anyway if you go to http://www.antennaweb.org and punch that in it looks like you have 2 digital stations: 7-1 and 9-1. Depending on where you live in relation to the 2 you probably wouldn't need to adjust ever ? You should put in your exact address and see what it gives you for degrees and distance.
