Question about Sony KDL46S3000 46 in. LCD HDTV
I just bought my Sony-Bravia television in March and cannot get all of my local channels. I do have Dish Network and all the channels come in fine, but when it storms and Dish Network is down, I switch to local television stations to watch. My paperworks shows that I do not have to have a converter box, however, when I autoscanned my new TV I could not receive my locals - so I purchased a converter box. Even with the converter box I can only pickup one local out of the 8 that are available here in Arkansas.
Can anyone help?
Do you have an antenna hooked up? You'll need one hooked to your converter box because the digital signal is so much more difficult to tune in to. This may help:
If you live closer than 15 miles, rabbit ears
If you live closer than 20 miles, omnidirectional
If you live closer than 50 miles, midrange outdoor (oldschool arial w/ rotator)
Further than 80 miles, you'll need a long range with rotator, perhaps even an amplifier to go with it. Print off what your results were on antenna web and bring it to a RadioShack or a local antenna store and they should be able to point you to the right antenna for your particular location.

More often than not the problem is with the Cable co. They ALWAYS blame the tv. I have had many many problems with the signal quality coming from that co. Here is the most likley cause. The cable signal is probably very Weak. This can be caused by a weak signal coming from the cabls co. or a bad cable inside your home. The age of the cable can effect the signal quality.Note: The cable co is only required to provide a Digital signal. Some companies allow free HD signals and some charge for that signal. The correct approach to this issue is to get with the Cox and ask the if they provide free Hd channels without a box. If they say no then you will have to get a HD cable box to watch HD programs. Themn if they say yes then you need to ask them to send out a tech and test the signal coming from the Head End all the way to your set. If the signal flucuates then you will get inconsistant scanning results.
