Here is a 'generalized' map of free, over-the-air TV reception opportunities in Tampa. Re-run the test and plug in your address or geo co-ordinance to get a personalized solution. Since you have a 'Smart TV' it already has a digital tuner, so all you need is an antenna. Good luck!
Your additional grounding pathway encourages a ground-loop! Please read the article linked below.
You cannot optimize a Yagi-style antenna for one channel by altering the length of only one element, including the reflector. As with most TV antennas, the ANT-751 is a compromised design intended to receive many channels including those on high-band VHF.
Try this: disconnect the antenna and select 19.1. Does it still lock-up? If yes, its an issue with the converter box. If it doesn't lock-up, block the channel using the parental controls and it won't be able to get 'stuck' on 19.1 after you reconnect the antenna. Please let us know...
Did you follow the "rules" when you tried to combine your antennas? 1) using a common coax splitter, two antennas must be identical and unless pointed in exactly the same direction, each antenna loses half of the signals they collect. 2) a VHF and UHF antenna can be combined on...
You might try a Leap Frog TV 're-broadcaster'. I bought mine about ten years ago and I can send TV audio and video (or security video) about 120 feet away from the unit. Mine is an analog version, but newer models may have been updated to digital. It was a topic on this Forum many years...
The oval section is designed to receive high-band VHF (REAL channels) 7-13 and the loop receives UHF channels) 14-37. Neither antenna section is designed or intended to receive low-band VHF (REAL channels) 2-6 but it may.
You need to 'rescan' your Converter Box. The Federal Government eliminated all real television channels 37-51 and sold those frequencies to cell phone companies. Prior to this, channels 52-69 were sold and years before that, channels 70-83 were removed. All stations that choose to...
WIWN moved from real channel 68 to real channel 5 ... apparently in January 2018. When 'sky-wave' conditions allow, Low-band VHF television signals can 'skip' off of the ionosphere and be received from very long distances. Where are you located? The link below has some engineering...
Your earphone jack is internally switched to shut off the TV sets' speaker/s and by design, the audio output level may be limited to that jack. If you use the Audio Output (AV) socket/s, you will have to go into the setup menu to disable the TV sets' speaker/s and it should provide...
