From what I can tell it is the CN tower stations I am missing which is the CDN content. No biggie.
I get 17 Digital stations... 5 from CN tower rest from Buffalo... I also get a bunch of NTSC one's too.
Mine is aimed between Buffalo & Toronto to get both sets as I have line of sight to them. You may need a rotator or two antennas to accomplish the same or just maybe an amplifier if you have obstructions between you and TO.
Yes, I'm above ground on the lake (probably why I can get away with one antenna aimed between TO & Buffalo as I have zero obstructions) but at Upper Middle rd you also have an increased elevation wrt source even at near ground level.
Can't help with percentages as I'm using my TV's tuner.... so I either get it clear or I don't.
From my prior posts link you can find the supplier in Hamilton, Nutech.
Your lower situation might well benefit from the one with a screen.
Have you tried to use a longer cable to get the antenna outside. That's what I initially did with a Radioshack indoor antenna and saw the additional benefit so I then purchased the $40 outdoor antenna at a $$ saving when I returned initial one as not suitable.
PM me if you want to borrow my antenna for a test to see if it works for you... all you will need is a long length of cable to run it back to your TV.
