I'm using the antenna that came with the hdtv wonder (I think it is an OEM Silver Sensor).
I have it pointed near a window facing south towards the lake (Less than a KM away) on the 15th floor with no balcony (And no physical obstructions in the line of sight) so an outdoor deal isn't in the cards.
Great work on the channel map - it helped me when setting up my HDTV. I got a 27" Sanyo HDTV with built in HD tuner from Wallmart for $580! I got it mainly to use with my X-box. Decided to get an antenna and try out the HD tuner - Holy cow!! The OTA picture is amazing. I'm using a Terk TV 32 mounted on the side of my house. I get every available channel accept Hamilton at over 70%. The only issue I have is CITY TV sound takes a minute to kick in - wish they had 5.1 The sound is amazing on the 5.1 stations. Reminds me of when I was a kid growing up in Grimsby, all we watched were mostly US stations by aerial, then we got cable and the US influence dwindled - now back to an aerial and nearly all US stations- Canada is missing the boat on HDTV!
Newbie here from Mississauga...I just purchased a HDTV receiver (Samsung SIR-TS160) and using it with a Radio Shack indoor antenna (15-1880). I get CBS, CityTV, and Toronto1 pretty consistently but want to get more channels.
I was wondering if there's any opinion out there on the Terk antennas that clip onto satellite dishes, namely the Terk42 or Terk44...I figure this would be the easiest way since I already have a dish installed on the outside...Thx.
OTA HD setup: Harmony 659, Sony LCD GWII 60", Samsung SIR-TS160, CM 4228, CM 7775, CM 9521A
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?
