Cut the cable to my TV some time ago. Bought an antenna at Costco and put it in my garage. The instructions that came with it led me to a web site that told me where to point the antenna for optimum signal. The problem is the optimum signal is different directions for different stations. We still got enough pixilation to be annoying, so we almost never watched TV. I think a big part of the problem is living in San Francisco with hills on three sides of us. Then I discovered this little gem. http://www.gomohu.com/leaf-plus-amplified-indoor-hdtv-antenna-1/ The darn thing is basically a piece of laminated cardboard I attached to my wall with two small Velcro strips. The power for the amplification comes off the USB port on my TV. I dont know how but it works great. We are getting more stations than we ever have and some of them look more clear than we got with cable. I fired it up and wham the first thing I see is Chris Issak singing Baby Did a Bad Bad Thing. Yeah so clear you could count the rhinestones on his jacket. Im happy and Baby got to watch her re-runs of The Odd Couple and The Bob Newhart Show. So far only a little pixilation on one station. Probably not a good option if you like to watch a lot of sports but beyond that its great.
