Advertisements I moved a Tivo to a set that doesn't have access to cable. My reception is terrible. All I want to get on this set is NBC, CBS and ABC really. I wish I could get PBS but I think that is asking too much of 'today's' television sets. My experience is the new televisions are basically boxes set up for cable reception and have very poor receiver in them. However I don't think I'm asking too much to try to get the major network stations okay. I live on a hilltop. I got the fanciest antenna I could find, not plain rabbit ears. Does anyone have any ideas? I don't have a DVD receiver but I have a VCR recording machine. Do VCR recorders have better receivers than televisions? That used to be the case. I'm just worn out from redoing all the television connections or I would just try it. Also the VCR recorder I have is already in use in another area and sometimes used there. I never use a VCR recorder on same set as Tivo is set up since I prefer to record with Tivo so I would just be moving the VCR recorder to this television to aid reception only. It seems like a waste but if that is only way to get channel reception I'll do that. Any ideas would be appreciated. I have two Tivos. Other one is located where cable is available so no problem.
