Well I just received my new Dvico Fusion 5 ATSC card and set it up.
So here are my results:
Using a 4 year old $20.00 pair of rabbit ears (indoors) from 17 stories up in downtown Toronto I can pick up the following (no tinkering, no adjusting):
1) WGRZ (D2) - 100% - 29.6db
2) WNLO-SD(D4) - 100% - 31.1db
3) CBLT(D5) - 100% - 29.5db
4) WKBW(D7) - 100% - 31.1db
5) CFTO(D9) - 100% - 29.6db
6) ??WUTV(D14) - 22% - 5.6db
7) WNLO-SD(D23) -72% - 18.6db
8) CBLFT-DT(D24) - 93% - 25.3db
9) WNED-HD(D43) - 86% - 23.2db
10) CityHD (D53) - 100% - 29.6db
11) CKXTHD (aka Toronto1) (D66) - 100% - 27.9db
12) WUTV(D14) - 65% - 17.5db
So after a little bit of tinkering (basically trying to tune WB49) I managed to pick up WUTV. Which basically means only WB49 in hd remains... I was going to try and pick up a better antenna but im starting to think its not necessary. My only issue now is that the current antenna gets slightly offset when I move away or closer to the tv which is kind of annoying.
I think im going to get an extended cable and put the current rabbit ears on my balcony - I figure I should be able to get a little bit better reception that way, and actually be able to walk by my TV.
Thus far the only hiccup is WGRZ (D2) which is constantly breaking up although I dont know why as the signal strength is great. I think im seeing the issue folks were mentioning on remotecentrals hdtv page about this channel.
Just a note the Fusion5 card is the new card from dvico using the gen 5 lg tuner. Aparently its supposed to be good for fringe areas... It seems fine thus far.
