Pour revenir à l’antenne, disons que ce n’est pas vraiment une antenne d’intérieur. À moins bien sûr qu’intérieur veuille dire un grenier, un hangar, un garage, une grange ou comme pour mon épouse, dans fond d’un placard :-) De toute façon c’est dehors qu’elle donne son meilleur rendement. À l’intérieur à côté de la télé j’ai obtenu 8 postes, dans la cage d’escalier en béton j’ai obtenu 15 à 18 postes/ sans et avec amplificateur et 22 postes à l’extérieur sans amplificateur. Éventuellement je vais la fixé sur toit en orientation sud-sud-est j’ai hâte de voir si cela fera une grosse différence s’il n’y a plus d’interférence causé par les arbres et les bâtiments. Il y a un montage à faire mais ce n’est vraiment pas compliqué si on sait visser un câble coaxial et quelques boulons.
Je recommande cette antenne à quiconque veut regarder les chaînes de télé locales gratuites avec une image haute définition claire et stable et ce peut importe la température extérieure.
Pour ma part j'ai installé l'antenne au-dessus de la télé collée au mur (elle dépasse d'environ 2 pieds au dessus de la télé) et c'est de cette manière que j'ai capté le plus de canaux. De plus, c'est quand même très élégant.
I used a Channel Master Splitter/Combiner to combine the two antennae and have a short run of RG6 cable leading to my TV with another splitter going off to a HDTV Recorder.
I get great reception on all the channels except 2-1 thru 2-4. I'm goint to add a preamp soon to see if that fixes the problem.
The entire setup might have cost a few hundred dollars but with Rogers' prices it paid for itself in a month or two.
If you are in the GTA and have a clear line of sight to the lakeshore I highly recommend these antennae.
Returned amp version to BB and purchased the simple version from amazon and saved $35can
My install is just temporary at the moment.
I live DT Vancouver 27th floor
Top international reviews
1. Worked better than one of those flat rectangular antennas. (The Channel Master rectangular one is still pretty good.). The various review sites, e.g., Wired, were right about this antenna being a good one.
2. The cable comes with easy-to-turn knobs for attaching. Just use your fingers. So much better than the old type that require open ended, perfectly sized wrenches.
3. The cable is separate, not built in, meaning less wear and tear and the option to use a different cable if you desire.
4. The circular design is elegant.
5. Its behavior changes over time and with weather, which is true of all these OTA antennas. Just be aware that you may not get perfect, cable-like, steady reception all the time!
6. Also, a nearby station changed its signal in some way and it became impossible to get a decent signal through our Roamio (TiVo). That station, well, three to be exact as it affected all the substations, ended up with staticky picture and intermittent sound. It was unbearable to watch.
——> Started researching new antennas....
Found a solution, however, which I present at the end!
7. The stickiness wears out. I did clean it, which restores some of its gripiness, but the large ”heavy” cable connector section pulls it down off the wall. We had to get small stick 'ems to keep it up. No big deal but a set of them should be provided.
8. ALERT: It is reversible, but you have to decide which side to show AT THE START! You cannot change your mind later as the sticky pad goes on ONLY ONCE! They really should include two sticky pads, so that you have the option of reversing it later on — e.g., if you move it somewhere else.
9. The cable is very long, which is handy if you need to run the antenna far away, but is an inconvenience if you put the antenna near the set —there is lots of cable flopping around behind the set. OTOH, being able to put it farther away can get it out of your visual field! See next.
10. Our family room is wood paneled so neither black or white is ideal. We went with black, but it looks odd to have a long black cable snaking up behind the TV set, ending in what looks like a circular clock face. It will catch your eye repeatedly at first, but then one learns to ignore it.
TIP TO RESOLVE LOUSY RECEPTION
Well, after days of having tried all sorts of locations, different cables, etc., we stumbled across a response to a question on Antenna Direct's website that mentioned using an *attenuator* to handle nearby, strong stations. Their signal can be TOO STEONG for the TV or TiVo, and needs to be weakened or attenuated! It's another reason that amplified antennas often don’t work or make reception worse!
So, we tried that. One simply screws the attenuator (a cylindrical several-inch long item) into the antenna jack of your TV or TiVo and then attaches the antenna cable to it. (We had a couple of attenuators left over from our old MOCA in house system, so we picked the blue labeled one.) They only cost $6-10, so it's definitely worth it.
Well, guess what?! IT WORKED LIKE A CHARM!
The pesky stations that we had intractable problems with cleared up fantastically. We went from weak reception, fluctuating around 50 strength on our Roamio TiVo with broken up picture and irritating intermittent sound to CONSISTENT reception, clear sound, and a STRONG signal strength of 72!
So, that's it! The good, the bad, and the ugly.
——>. FOR NEARBY STRONG STATIONS, GET THEE AN ATTENUATOR!
Para el costo que tiene la antena es un producto muy malo
1. It was important to use the "Antennas Direct transmitter locator" website to get the direction of the transmitters, and then line it up exactly with the digital compass on iPhone (bluetooth must be on to get the highest accuracy).
2. I also learned a lot about antennas and installation. Watching some YouTube videos, it was recommended to use conductive grease for all of the outdoor coax cable connections, to prevent moisture and provide longer life at the connections. This tube of conductive grease was less than $5, so it was well worth applying it to every connection outside.
3. The cheap cable splitters significantly reduce antenna signal strength and just don't work for antennas! When I placed the antenna, I went through a door to directly connect the cable to the TV to get 60 channels. After confirming direction and that the antenna worked as advertised, I connected to the inside of the house using the existing coax cables and splitters that were already installed. I lost significant antenna signal from even just one two-way splitter. Wow, this was a revelation to me, but then realized that these cheap cable splitters work better for cable TV than for antennas! I went from 60 channels down to 30, and the two stations I really wanted disappeared again. So if this antenna is going to multiple televisions or the coax cable to the TV is longer than 50 feet (mine was 125 feet), it is highly recommended to get the Channel Master amplified signal splitter (2-, 4-, or 8-way amplified splitter). I researched this too, and found that Channel Master had high ratings and good customer service.
4. I got the antenna with both the UHF and VHF antenna. The VHF antenna is the bar across the top, and for $50 less you can just get the UHF antenna. I'm not sure which stations get picked up by the VHF antenna (however I do have some just audio radio stations on TV now) but if the model number has the "V" in it, it probably has the VHF antenna (just look for the dark bar across the top of the figure "8" antennas). If the "V" is missing from the model number, it probably does not have the VHF antenna. That's why you may see some of these antennas that are $50 less expensive than others. This took some research to find this answer too, but I've documented it here to make it easier for others.
It's clear viewing now on every channel! I'm really happy with this antenna, and after the initial investment, I'll save at least $100+ per month from cable TV. I can't say you'll get as good of results as I did, but it has greatly improved my viewing pleasure!
This antenna, and I believe this applies to all flat HDTV antennas, is NOT omnidirectional. Online reviews often list them as omnidirectional but the manufacturers are much more careful in their descriptions. The antenna should be placed on an outside wall facing the TV towers you wish to pick up. The direction does not need to be exact, but turning the antenna 90 degrees will impact reception. In my case it reduced the number of channels I could pick up.
This style antenna is also designed for UHF reception. Most, but not all, HDTV stations are UHF. This antenna will pick up some VHF signals depending on their frequency and direction.
When setting up my antenna, all the major networks but one were broadcast on UHF from the east of my home. The other was broadcast on VHF from the south. No orientation of this antenna would pick up every station. I contacted Antennas Direct customer service and they responded quickly and helped figure out a solution. I needed to add a VHF antenna to my setup, and together with this antenna, they work perfectly. Customer service was great!
The web site tvfool.com can be used to show the location, frequency (UFH or VHF), and direction of channels at your address. Focus on the chart that lists the stations in descending order of signal strength to best understand what you will need from an antenna.
With the new ClearStream 2V antenna, the idea was to feed the 3 main tv's within the house, including the guest room. I was going to have cable runs of 20', 50', and +75'. I can't mount anything on the roof, so I built my own 10' high tv mast, and it stands on my 2nd floor balcony deck. After researching, and talking with the folks at Antennas Direct (a good source of help), we decided that I would actually aim the VHF attachment DIFFERENTLY than the UHF portion of the antenna. Using the basic websites that everyone else uses, that tells you WHERE all of your tv towers are, I was able to keep moving my antenna elements, till I got the maximum channels. The VHF part of this antenna snaps in place on the top of this antenna. But I'd encourage you to play around with the positioning of VHF part, and maybe attach it (I used zip-ties, which worked great), in a DIFFERENT position/angle on the mast. I got BETTER overall results, by doing that. I did several final channel scans, and pulled in about +50 channels. Granted, my location sits at 650 ft. elevation, so I have a pretty good shot at pulling in a bunch of channels. But most folks will have an advantage over me .... as they would have 360 degree exposure, IF they mount this antenna ON TOP of their roof. The results I got, came from only having about 200 degrees of exposure, instead of a full 360.
Fast forward, and I bought the Winegard LNA 200 pre-amp (after reading of it's success). I figured that with my longer cable runs, for multiple TV's, a pre-amp might help improve things. I added it to my mast, about 8" below my antenna. I now pull in 80 - 85 channels. Granted, there's quite a few of Spanish stations, I can't use. But I still get a lot of other useful channels, including all of the major local ABC/NBC/CBS/PBS/CW, etc. networks. I even get a few of the Los Angeles' versions of some of those. Also, there will be some days/nights where some of your (distant) channels might fade in/out a bit, at times. That happens with most any antenna. But most of my channels are strong. I've only had my antenna up for 3 - 4 weeks, so I can't speak for how DURABLE this will be.
I read a TON of the +1400 Amazon reviews for this antenna, and came to the conclusion that many of the folks who left the "poor reviews", probably were either in a bad location (signal-wise), or they just didn't put much time into their antenna project. I've learned that in order to get a load of channels, it typically just doesn't happen by pulling the antenna out of the box, and throwing it up somewhere. I've also noticed a lot of folks who mounted their antenna in their attic got 'decent' function from their antenna. But I think they'd be surprised at how many more channels they'd get, if they had mounted it outdoors. But for some folks, weather or accessibility to their roof, made it hard to do. But for those who are debating, mount it outdoors. It's the best way to get the MOST out of this antenna.
So if you are wondering about buying this antenna, go for it. It's actually a very good product. And unlike many other items you buy, where the QUALITY of what you get from that product, is solely dependent on how it is made ..... ANTENNAS are different. Much of what you GET out of an antenna, is determined by the EFFORT you put into positioning and connecting things the right way. This one doesn't take a ton of time to actually hook up. But if you plan to use it to power more than 1 TV, or you live in a area that doesn't have the best line-of-sight exposure to nearby TV towers, take some time to read what others have done, and your chances of getting really good TV reception, go way up.
Look at the other customer pictures and the Amazon picture carefully. The 4V has the extra horizontal receptor on the top to one side, mine did not. Check the box before you install it!
Other than that, not difficult to assemble, but to install it on the roof, well that's not always fun nor easy, so 3 stars there. I'll have to actually buy it or another one elsewhere. Oh well, you can't win them all.
I suspect some people are having problems with antennas because they don't realize how finicky modern (digital) TV signals are. Antenna placement makes an enormous difference. Most important of all is DIRECTION - your antenna needs to have as clear a line of sight to the towers as possible (find your towers on antennaweb.org). Then you want as clear of a shot as you can get - walls are bad, windows as less bad, higher is better. If you put it on the opposite side of the house, you probably won't get a signal at all.
If you can measure the signal, you'll have more luck getting the best location. My HDHomeRun tuner allows me to measure the signal, and I could get signal quality improvements of 10-20% just by moving it a couple of feet and angling it slightly differently - it was the difference between occasional pixelation and a clear signal.
First, my area is dominated by VHF channels for network TV, and many of these very fine antennas (Mohu *cough, *cough) are not clear enough about how difficult it can be to receive VHF over distance.
I WAS trying to work from inside the house and almost gave up after guy at antennas direct explained how my typical Florida stucco over concrete block can be difficult to deal with. As a last ditch last attempt I dragged the antenna outside and straddled the top of my PVC fence with it and BINGO! all the channels I've never been able to tune in and hang onto came flooding in. Gave me goose bumps, the girls tingled, if you know what I mean.
Could have just left it there, but local dirt bags are always a a threat to anything to anything nice - hence the fence - so I called my handymen, Frick & Frack, and asked for suggestions for fixing it down so could not be jerked around, they looked up and behold, old antenna that's been there since i bough the house years ago glimmered in the sunshine and for 40 bucks they climbed the roof and attached it with handy-dandy screws provided. And oh, frabjous joy!
But after putting this together and setting it on the desk - I tuned the "easiest" station in with my TV to hit 70%, clicked the remote to scan - and I now get NINE channels, including one VHF (well 3 digitally) over 40 miles away. So at very long last, I'm FINALLY set for football!
(Oh, also, I bought the Winegard LNA-200 Boost XT - I unplugged it to check, and mine doesn't pick up jack without it.)
We are keeping our broadband connection and use SlingTV (on our Apple TV device) for our "cable" channels. The combination of this antenna and the Sling ($25 a month) provides us with even more programming than we used to have with our cable provider - and we are saving about $150 a month.
