TIPS FOR BETTER RECEPTION
  • Install the antenna as high as possible to avoid possible obstacles between the antenna and the transmission tower.
  • If possible, place the antenna near windows.
  • Keep the antenna away from sources of interference such as air conditioners, hair dryers, and microwave ovens.
  • Run a channel scan (from your TV’s setup menu) every time you move your antenna.
  • If possible, position your antenna toward the transmission tower. To determine which channels are available in your area, visit https://www.fcc.gov/media/engineering/dtvmaps. Type in your zip code to get help with antenna placement.
  • Test the antenna in multiple locations to find the strongest signal.
  • Run a channel scan monthly to make sure that you are receiving all possible channels.
  • Some TVs have a signal strength indicator that can help with antenna placement. Check your TV manual to see if your TV has this feature.
  • This antenna works with any TV or device with an ATSC tuner. See your device’s manual to check compatibility.
TROUBLESHOOTING

I cannot find any channels.

  • Make sure that you have selected the correct input on your TV.
  • Make sure that all your connections are correct and secure.
  • Move your antenna, then rescan for available channels on your TV or set-top box.
  • Make sure that you are connected to a TV or set-top box with an ATSC tuner. If you do not have either of those, you will need to purchase a digital converter box.

The picture quality is good on some channels and poor or no reception on others.

  • Move your antenna, then scan for available channels on your TV or set-top box.
  • Keep the antenna away from sources of interference, such as air conditioners, hair dryers, and microwave ovens.
  • Your antenna may be too far from the broadcast antenna to receive an adequate signal. The signal may also be affected by obstructions between the broadcast antenna and your antenna.
  • Make sure that the signal strength from the antenna is adequate. Some TVs have a signal strength indicator. Check your TV manual to see if your TV has this feature.

I don’t know what digital TV reception I get in my area.

Not all channels are available after performing a channel scan.

  • Adjust your antenna, then scan for available channels on your TV or set-top box.
  • Make sure that the signal strength from the antenna is adequate. Some TVs have a signal strength indicator. See your TV manual to see if your TV has this feature.

I have more than one TV on which I want to view over-the-air TV.

  • If the signal is strong enough, you can purchase a coaxial splitter to allow for one antenna to provide channels to more than one TV.
    OR
  • You will need to purchase an antenna for each TV that you would like to view over-the-air TV.

I am not receiving cable and streaming channels after a channel scan.

  • Your antenna is capable of receiving local channels that are dependent on the broadcasters in your area.
  • You can use the antenna alongside cable boxes and streaming devices, but it will not provide all of the same content offered by those devices.

I want HD channels, but I do not have an HDTV.

  • Your digital antenna will not upscale to HD if the TV is not HD. You will need to purchase an HDTV.
