After seeing good reviews on the radioshack bowtie antenna, I went out and bought one to pair it up with Visiontek HD650 tuner. With media center, only one of the channels were shown in green for signal strength, with a good half of them in yellow and the rest in red. But when it comes down to actually flipping through channels, the only one I can get good fix on is CBS. Even at that, I really had to twist the antenna in all different directions to find a very narrow sweet spot. I was hoping to get like a half dozen stations, but I guess that was a bit of a wishful thinking on my part. A cheap bastard I am, and wasn't planning on spending a whole lot on antennas. I had to get a 75ohm to 300ohm terminator to go with the antenna too, all excited about getting it to work Should I try to build one of those homemade antennas made from clothhnagers? Here is reception at my approximate location for what it's worth: http://yfrog.com/jqcaptureirj A bit too far for a tiny indoor antenna I have eh? I live on the first floor of a three story apartment complex; the one and only window at my place is facing north, blocked by another building to the north.
