I had this same exact problem with my Mitsubishi LCD! Our Sony TV in the bedroom uses an Apex converter box and bunny ears, and receives every digital channel available. The Mitsubishi w/ built-in digital tuner and the same exact bunny ears received 50-75% of stations available. I'm not sure if the tuner in the Mitsu is that much weaker than the Apex converter, or if signals can vary by that much within 10' to 20'.

I had to upgrade to a flat type antenna (which I gave a review on here: http://www.dtvusaforum.com/dtv-reception/703-member-dtv-hd-antenna-reviews.html), which works great now, but I probably could have gotten away with a powered bunny ear antenna type setup.
