Q. Should this antenna make it possible to view my local stations without cable or disk hookup of any kind?
- I bought a 42" HDTV for my son along with this antennae. If your set is a newer set you should have no problems. Set up is simple. Your TV should prompt you on whether it's an antennae or cable being hooked up. Choose antenna then your TV will offer you the chance to "autoscan" to find channels and count them out to you as they are found. My son picked up 52 channels, a lot! But he only lives a few miles outside of Chicago, so I would imagine most people would get far less, though I have no idea as to it's range. Hope this helps.by tedebear25/1/2015Was this answer helpful? (10) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- With this antenna you will only receive local channels. But the channels you will get will depend on the height of the antenna, the distance from the broadcasting towers, and what kinds of interference are near your antenna.by whyisthisreallynecessary5/25/2015Was this answer helpful?

- Check that your TV has an ATSC tuner. Most TV's being sold now include a built-in ATSC tuner. The ATSC tuner decodes the over-the-air digital signal. Once you connect the antenna to the TV, set the TV signal input to: antenna. Then it's good-bye cable. This antenna is very directional and better placed near a window.by CuriousMan4/8/2015Was this answer helpful? (11) (0)Was this answer helpful?

- we had to move the antenna around as far as it could stretch until we picked up a few channelsby jbskgc2/8/2013Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- If you went into your TV's menu and scanned for channels and still can't receive any channels, there might be interference with where your antenna is placed. Antenna height is also a factor. If your antenna is low and you have a lot of wires and metal in your walls its very possible that you won't get any channels.by whyisthisreallynecessary11/25/2012Was this answer helpful?

- Be sure you're running "autoprogramming" after EVERY repositioning - took me 25-30 times to get it just right! Hang in there; it's worth it!by LoyalWalmarter12/7/2012Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- Well. this may be a dumb answer, but have you scanned your tv after putting on new antenna? This works for us --- we are surrounded by tall fir trees,,,but live near a large city--- get reception for all our local channels in HD. Good Luck!by MovieLover7775/25/2015Was this answer helpful?

- YOU NEED TO USE THE CHANNEL SCAN FEATURE THAT YOUR TV HAS TO LOCK THE HD CHANNELS IN. ONCE THE SCAN HAS FINISHED,THE TV SHOULD AUTOMATICALLY GO TO CHANNEL 2.by MONEYMISER595/25/2015Was this answer helpful? (0) (1)Was this answer helpful?
- I just bought one recently for my LCD HDTV & at first I could bring in no channels, but then I went to "input" and selected "TV" & then I changed that setting to "Antenna" from "Cable" and it brought in 29 channels after auto-programming with the best quality picture that I have ever had! It's great!by 1951Swede2/8/2015Was this answer helpful? (2) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- Please go to your tv menu or tools . First switch to air, if it is set to cable. Then go to auto programme , it will tell you searching for channels, you will see #s going up. I got 57 channels. Very clear n in HD .. My antenna is on my tv. Not very close to window, still reception is unbelievable.by AmyPru2/8/2015Was this answer helpful? (2) (0)Was this answer helpful?

- Yes. All TV transmissions now are digital. Hence, the converter box will transform the digital signals to analog signals that a pre digital (older) set will understand.by CuriousMan5/15/2015Was this answer helpful? (10) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- I'm VERY non-technical,,but I think it would require that to get your local or HD channels --- I do think we still get a few over the air channels however!..(not sure how that's possible)--- yes, I think the box-thing would be required.by MovieLover7775/15/2015Was this answer helpful?

- YES. YOU WILL NEED THE CONVERTER BOX TO RECIVE DIGITAL PROGRAMMING INTO AN OLDER ANALOG SET.THE ANTENNA IS JUST FOR THE RECIEVING OF DTV SIGNAL ONLY AND HAS NOTHING TO WITH WHAT YOUR TUNER IN YOUR SET CAN RECIEVE.by MONEYMISER595/15/2015Was this answer helpful? (10) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- Yes, you need a digital converter box on an older type pre-digital TV for this antenna to work properly on it. It works without the converter box on my 1 year old LCD HDTV.by 1951Swede5/15/2015Was this answer helpful? (6) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- Yes.. You WILL need a converter box so that your older TV can receive and play DIGITAL signals.. All broadcasts are now digital. Walmart has this converter box for under 30.00..>>>**Sunkey Digital-Analog Converter Box with Learning Universal Remote Control, ATB150S** With a converter box and a digital (DTV) antenna, you'll be able to watch TV without have to pay for cable. .by GodIsSooooGood5/25/2015Was this answer helpful?
