Are you using an outdoor antenna aimed directly at LA towers 334 degrees? Do you get same results via TV tuner directly ?
Re. aiming, Correct the antenna is aimed directly at the transmitting antenna. The results are identical from the TV tuner, No pictures. :(

Channel RF28 is showing 2 edge so means 2 bounces.It would say you dealing with multipath interference from multiple reflections and the tuner can't lock onto one signal.Did you ever get a picture from this station ?
This station was good some time ago..
I had access with, what I remember to be a Winegard omni directional disk. This was swapped out for a Denny's antenna, that too worked for a while and I tried a CM4228 with and without booster with no luck..

I swiveled the antenna about 45 degrees and no or very little symbol or signal quality showed on the HDHomeRun for this and a few others.. I did get a atsc v.3 lock on Channel 11. Woot! This broadcast antenna is Hi VHF at 11 and it also is fine as far as a atsc v.1 picture..
Any suggestions on how to eliminate one or the other bounce?

Thank you!

PS, you indicated that the signal "is showing 2 edge so means 2 bounces ". Help me to where this is shown.. "I'm just a simple caveman" Learning is good!!

Thank you Rob.. I see the 2-Edge note and that Ideally I'd have some additional height to clear the obstructions. Is the 2-edge designation due to these 2 obstructions.
If I only had my antenna 165 feet higher, LOL..

Thank you.

It's a bit confusing and frustrating when the broadcast locations and signal margin are not reliable indicators of channel access.
For example, channels 18 and 50, carried on 18 are not available, but all of the other channels here are... Very strange, all broadcast are from Mt Wilson and so transit all of the same terrain and the signal margin of 2, 4 and 5 are lower than are 18/50.
Well, sometimes you win and sometimes you don't.

Update.. I now have access to channel 28.1 to 28.3 and channel 58.1 through 58.3. I had communicated with the station about what I was and wasn't seeing with regard to their signal. I was told that the information provided was forwarded to the technical staff, but didn't hear anything back. I checked my signal today, and I now have a signal.. This may be a atmospheric condition, but I'm hopeful some tweak on their side made the difference..

Fingers crossed.

Thank you all!

Chris
