Cut Your Cable TV Cord
Some General Advice, then this information:
There are some oddities regarding over the air digital signals.
Trees do not seem to trouble reception.
However, clear and cloudless days seem to attenuate the signals from distant stations.
Heavy rain causes issues at times as well.
Clearstream 4V OTA (in the attic) - it tunes both VHF and UHF
I Use a Motorola Broadband Amplifier just after the Clearstream 4V antenna
TiVo's - streaming to Five Location
M-CableCARD (Multichannel CableCARD - allows tuning of (any) four cable channels
(IF you have a 4-channel tuner)
Channel Tuner, since T/W (Spectrum) splits the content of it's cable channels
MoCA connections (Ethernet over your COAX cable)
Netgear Powerline (Ethernet over your Power Line)
Roku3, TabloTV DVR, HuluPlus and Amazon Prime
www.antennaweb.org (where to point your antenna and what stations you might get)
Clearstream 2 in the attic
I have only over the air service and I get about 45 channels with our main antenna
and 20 something with the “stick it on the window” antenna. Just like cable,
there are many channels that are either duplicates or that I never watch.
I get 7 Spanish language channels.
Clearstream 2 & Roku3
I have taller trees and more trees near my home than you (Dave).
When airplanes fly by or it rains, the reception is tainted.
You can buy the clearstream antennas from Ebay at a substantial discount.
Most have them have been tuned to pick up VHF to some degree.
I will probably add a second antenna and point it toward WUNC as
this is the station I want the most.
Some antennas can point to two directions at once (with a reduced signal
strength) - they have two half's an antenna - DAVE.
Dave's Clearstream 4V has both a UHF and a VHF antenna - and can point
them in different directions at the same time.
