    just plugged this in for the 1st time 2 hours ago. let it do its thing, scan for OTA. with my hr10250 i never got channel 6 from philly because it's one of the few stations that remained VHF and my DB8 is only UHF.

    but with premiere i have VHF 6 in...i'm shocked. i still dont believe it but there's no other explanation..something in premiere likes me i guess! :up::up:

    just hope this lasts..didnt look at signal strengths yet

    Or it could be that the HR10-250 had a crappy ATSC tuner...

    thats not the issue...you arent supposed to get vhf on uhf...and now that i checked, the strengths are all similar on known good channels as 6

    Sure you can get VHF on a UHF antenna.. It won't necessarily be a strong signal but you can still pick some things up.

    I have a 30 year old set of VHF rabbit ears plugged into my Series3, and it picks up a bunch of UHF channels just fine.
