    Need a replacement remote control for converter box

    Bought a universal remote at WalMart and it would not work with the Magnavox converter box. No codes would be recognized. Maybe a different one would work.

    Used to get Channel 7 KGO-ABC easily but not now

    Why is channel 2 FOX KTVU shown as to the north-east? I would think they broadcast from San Francisco like the other major channels. Is it on a repeater?

    Used to get Channel 7 KGO-ABC easily but not now

    TV FOOL REPORT Now ALL I get is the closest PBS station channel 22 I also used to get 36 and 65 but don't get those now either. Maybe something went wrong with the antenna or the wire connection there where the coax connects. I used to have a magnavox converter box but don't use it now...

    Need a new Converter box The super sonic iConvert box is disappointing. Channels I used to watch using the old Magnavox converter box now come up with a blank screen saying "no signal."

    Question: My converter box is screwed up

    I've been wondering why I see "no signal" when I try to get channels I used to get pretty confidently. I'd then try removing the coax from the box and reconnecting it, then like twisting it, and tightening it down more. Sometimes the channel comes in then. Obviously a bad connection there...

    Question: Analog Ch 25 comes in great

    The Fool Report: TV Fool I only recently realized that analog 25 was in a totally different heading (azimuth) than my other channels. Had been watching very poor reception on it, until just now and I turned the antenna and it comes in strong. Analog 25 is the same as digital 4-1 which is KRON 4...

    Question: Point indoor antenna to pickup CBS/FOX in San Francisco

    I think the guests apt is on the east side of the building and faces east; while the Sutro Tower is off behind to the west. There's other apartments on the west side of the building and if you were on the third floor looking out of one of those windows you might be able to see the tower. Also...

    Question: Point indoor antenna to pickup CBS/FOX in San Francisco

    I was able to finally figure out how to do an elevation profile. What it showed is: There is no Line Of Sight! It is blocked by a hill. I used these tools (so someone else can re-create the profile, or do another for their own situation) Really interesting application IMO! Elevation Profile...
