You should also be receiving 53-1 (CITY-TV HD) and 66-1 (CKXT-TV HD).joedoe said:I just got the 9200 and signed up for the HDTV package.
Was strolling in Walmart and saw a Phillips antenna......$25........ahhhhh....I'll try it.
I got at most 13 channels. Currently have 12
The percentages of all are around 70% and some higher.
The quality seems to be the same as on expressvu.
Does quality go up as percentage does? I assume since it is digital that it is either clear or not. Some pixulation usually means you are on the thin line.
Is that pretty good for the antenna I got? I just put it over the TV. Is there any reasons to keep it as it doesn't map into the Bell guide that well. Bell carries the channels as well.......they just may be different cities.
The quality of the picture remains virtually constant as long as you get a signal. That's the difference between analog & digital. There will be a difference between signals on cable or EVue -- due to compression. The OTA signals don't have the same compression levels, and therefore are more pristine.
When you loose the signal (and this threshold varies with your receiver) you will begin to pixellate, experience blocking, and then nothing.
Your signal indicator may indicate zero, but in fact, there still is signal, but it has fallen below the threshold to decode a good picture.
The question with your antenna is sustainability. I believe with your cheapie indoor antenna you will not always receive the Buffalo channels or the weaker Toronto channels (like 66-1).
