Advertisements I'm not really motivated to run a third line to my roof with an ota antenna so I just hooked up some rabbit ears this afternoon. (My den is solid oak all around including the ceiling; to get those sweet sounding acoustics) My signal strength was 10-15 and I could not get a picture... I was trying to figure out how to boost it without running a line to my roof with a huge antenna.... I have some old speakers wires sticking out of my wall that go through my house; in the attic and to a few other rooms (dont use them for anything). I stripped 'em down and wrapped the around the ends of my rabbit ears and viola!... signal strength goes to 50 (still crappy but now I can get a viewable signal). So now I switch from my sat HD channels then back to my ota hd channels and notice its about twice as clear. EVEN WITH A Signal Strength of 35-45! I think i'll get off my arse and purchase a nice antenna and run a line to my tv. DTV HD Quality sucks and mpeg4 is not going to make much of a difference because they will say to themselves "Well, the channels look good now so we can add more and take up all the bandwidth on our sats! We can make more money if we offer more channels!... who cares about our current HD subscribers and the quality of their picture!"
