TIPS & TRICKS
Check our zip code locator to make sure you are within our over-the-air coverage area.
- Check all of your connections.
- Make sure your antenna is VHF and UHF capable.
- If you have more than one TV connected to a single antenna, try disconnecting all but one of them and then perform a full channel re-scan. If you are not able to acquire channel 12 and other available local channels, you may need to purchase an inexpensive RF or TV amplifier and place it in front of the splitter.
- You may need to try different antenna locations in your home, including placement near a window, as high in a room as possible and/or away from other electronic equipment. If all of the above does not provide reception, you may want to use a rooftop antenna or upgrade an existing antenna to potentially provide better reception.
- Adjust your antenna. Even a small shift of a few degrees can make a big difference.
- Consider purchasing an inexpensive RF or TV amplifier.
- Make sure your antenna connectors are in good condition. Sometimes it’s necessary to disconnect and re-reconnect both ends of the cable to remove oxidation. This is especially true for outdoor and attic antennas.
