Hello, Its been several months since I have posted here, I was here during the time I was having directv instlled. Now, My grandma for Christmas 2006 got our 27" old tv (We got here other gifts too we didn't feel right giving here something used and nothing else.) Her reception wasn't so good so we got a $14 antenna, http://184.108.40.206/rcaaccessories/RcaaccessoriesProductDetail.do?ACTION_TYPE_ID=ACTION_TYPE_PRODUCT_DETAIL&ACTION_CATEGORY_IDSTR_CATEGORY_INDOOR_ANTENNAS&ACTION_PRODUCT_ID=ANT121 (she was using plain old rabbit ears before this.) This tv is great and all but its not digital. No fears we got here a digital converter box. http://www.magnavox.com/index.cfm?event=main&cat_id=1&subcat_id=7&product=164# When I first hooked up the converter box, the channel reception was horrible, And in fact it only worked when I put the antenna out on her porch. So I swapped to the rabbit ears, I assumed the $14 set didnt work with "DTV" signals. (I tried all the adjustments on the antenna itself.) The rabbit ears work much better. Now comes the problem, Whenever we get a light cloud cover, her dtv signal ceases to exist, and the analog signal is just fine. This is ok, but considering the station stopped broadcasting in analog 2 weeks ago, its a problem now. The antenna is out on her porch now. (She lives in a senior citizen apartment complex. they cant attach any antennas to the roof or outside the house. We actually have the rabbit ears hidden behind her sun shade on the porch. The antenna is facing the direction the station comes from. ) Needless to say she gets 3 other stations just fine, but they are in languages she does not speak, and she likes this one English channel she gets. She does have a computer (with highspeed.) I have her watching the local news on a live broadcast on the web. But she is simply to short on cash to afford satellite or cable. (shes only paying $10.99 for dsl btw) If you want to see the station situation: An address "close to her house" (I wouldn't dare give the real address here, no offense.) http://www.tvfool.com Use: 927 hunt ave St. Helena Ca 94574 Station we want to get : KFTY DTV ----------------------------------------------------------------------- So my question is, what "indoor" antenna should I buy to get the best reception of 1 SD dtv channel for her? (ie: it can be directional) (preferably under $40) Thanks, sorry I am so long winded.
