I tried the outside antenna, actually tried 2 antennas, and both were marginal due to our house being in a low spot. I was able to get 65 Channels but not reliablably. Both are for sale, half price.

Could you post pictures of your antennas?

One antenna BoostWave comes with a rotator and amplifier and is for both VHF and UHF, the other was a Db4e antenna, UHF only, for it I purchased a 4 port amplifier. As I stated I could occasionally get all of the channels using my LG (55 inch) TV search function. I was also able to use the MANUAL search function which provides a signal quality and signal strength indication to make sure I had the antennas aimed correctly. In any case a review of Google Earth showed a hill in Leesburg between our house and the television station antennas. While I know I could put the antenna 25 or 30 feet in the air to get good signals, I refuse to do that to my neighbors, so currently stuck on cable......

To all ToTV readers..................If you are looking to cut the cable, this guy has The Set-up. This is definitely a one-stop set-up.
