Digital TV frequently asked questions
TV reception problems?
Do you have an outside antenna?
An outside antenna will allow you to receive the best possible signal. Rabbit ear antennas do not work with digital television.
How old is your antenna?
Many antennas may last only a few years due to the extreme weather. Hail and ice may damage your antenna by bending or breaking off components. Connectors and splitters may rust and damage the cable system. These and other problems will weaken your signal.
Do you have a pre-amp?
A preamplifier boosts the signal received at the antenna and improves reception.
What kind of cable are you using?
Are you using RG6 or RG59?
RG6 coaxial cable is the best for home antenna use. RG59 will work ok.
What condition is your cable?
Like antennas, cable can wear out. Wind damage, extreme temperatures, and kinks can shorten the life of your cable.
