I just moved my TV from where I trip over it every time I go to sit down to the forward main cabin
bulkhead. Rerouted the power cable, coax too short so I put in a joiner, fired 'er up and most of my channels (the digital ones that I watch) are missing in action.
Much fiddling later I've got everything but digital channels 7 (177.500 MHz) and 9 (191.625MHz).
is a common brand omnidirectional, active or amplified. I tried some old "rabbits ears" and they worked almost as well as the installed antenna
I can get the analogue channels but they are pretty "snowy" and sometimes missing the sound.
The installed antenna "works", that is I do get a signal from it but if I turn the gain down I loose it so the power bit is OK. I checked the power leads and they are 12.6V so that looks OK.
I'm right in the middle of a big city so I expected a good strong signal.
I looked up service
support for the installed antenna and I looks like I'm to contact my dealer. Serves me right for buying
I did have a quick chat with my local dealer and they pointed me the way of a nice looking double antenna system and set top box. Only another boat buck or so!
So what's this addict to do? I don't want to throw money
at it, and there's no guarantee that it would be much better if I did.
