I live in Scarborough literally a block from Lake Ontario and I am unable to receive any HD ota signals.
I have a monster htpc setup with ati x800 graphics card, hdtv wonder card, dvi capable lcd monitor.
I installed the hdtv card with mmc (multimedia center software from ati). During setup I did an autoscan for signals with the supplied silver antenna. Nothing.
I bought Radio Shack's most expensive indoor antenna. Nothing.
The house I am in has a roof top antenna, so I thought I would try that. I located the cable in the basement. It is a flat 1" wide cable with 2 copper leads coming out of it. I bought a gizmo at radio shack that had a coaxial connection at one end and two leads at the other end. I spliced the 2 leads to the wire to the rooftop antenna. I then connected that to the indoor antenna from Radio Shack. Nothing.
I see by the map that there is a HD receiver in Oshawa. Shouldn't I be able to get something?
