Customer Questions & Answers

Can this antenna be placed in the attic and use the cable tv wiring to feed other tv's in the house?

Asked by: Anonymous
This was an modest improvement over my 10 ft. antenna in strength. I do not see why you couldn't hook other TV's up to it in the manner that you suggested. It has a regular two prong wall plug for power and a standard coaxial output cable that feeds to the television. Both cords are approx.6 ft. long.

How many channels do you get?

I have 2 HDtv's and 1 tube TV, I was wondering will it work for both? Does it need a WiFi connection? Does it need rabbit ears? And about his many stations would I pick up?

Amplified Indoor Antenna is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great investment! Since so many things are available to watch on the internet, I was very resistant to paying for cable just to get local TV and thought this might be a good alternative. I bought two of these and I tried it on the basement TV first because I figured that one would be a deal breaker. When I first hooked it up, I set in on the table behind the TV and only got 3 channels. After reading the trouble shooting tips, I hung it on the wall behind the TV and can get all 15 local channels with no breaking up. For the upstairs TV it's laying flat on a shelf and it works perfectly and the price for each one equals one month of the minimal cable package. I consider it a bargain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works better than most antennas! I like that it was easy to set up. It came with mounting screws in case you wanted to put it on the wall. It also comes with a stand so you can stand it vertically, I suggest behind the tv so it's out of the way. The reception is found best when it's standing up and somewhere high. The power cable is strange; it's a phone line cable that plugs into a wall adapter. I'm not sure why they made it this way but it's ok! Performance compared to other antennas is better. I picked up 8 channels in my area, and they all were crystal clear so long as I have the antenna in a high location; when people walk near or around it, the video feed skips or delays. But another antenna I have picks up over 16 channels, and it wasn't amplified, but the 8 channels this one picked up were way better than they were with the other one. Amplifying does make a difference! The performance drops somewhat when it's raining, but this is quite normal for digital antennas. Granted, Dr. Phil paid us a visit and he came in very loud and clear, in High Definition too! My wife thanks me for this. Overall, this is a great product. It works so well for the basic channels, and I would recommend it just for that. It really depends on your area, where you live, how many trees, things like that. In my case, I live in a very urban area, antenna towers are abundant! Again, I would recommend it if you want the basics (ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox), as they all came out perfectly for me! And they're all free!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works great After three days I ordered the antenna, I got a text message from Home Depot informing me that the antenna is ready for pick up. The device is larger than I expected. In the beginning, I put it vertically next to my TV and did channel scan. It detected 20 channels and missed ABC. Then, I put it at a higher shelf which is about 6 feet from the ground and scanned the channels again. I got 22 channels including ABC. Pictures in all channels are clear. I do not need to change the orientation. I live 20 miles away from downtown Sacramento. Recently, Comcast removed HD signals from the cable for limited basic subscription. The antenna is great to bring HD signals back to my TV without paying extra to Comcast every month.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Free HD TV works in most locations Product is easy to install, connect standard cable screw end to TV and plug box adapter in. After switching TV to "air" from "cable" auto channel found about 20 HD channels. All networks channels and some educational/special interst channels. Reception was very good, and I live in an area about 40 miles from transmitters. A bit big, about 10 inches rectangular, but slim. Black and can be place vertical or horizontal, needs to be within about 5 feet of TV unless add extra cable. Perfect for dorm room or spare room where the basic channels will do without the need for cable or an addtional cable box.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cable Cutter I bought this for my Ex-wife for Christmas who cut her cable. Most channels the reception is excellent. We first set it behind the TV, but once we put it atop the entertainment center she was able to pick up more channels.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK but limited range; Good for FM reception Acquired this to get free over-the-air DTV signals, but received only one channel out of 79 possible for my TV. On the plus side, the antenna was reporting a signal level of 80 out of 100 for that one channel and the clarity was fairly good; the picture quality was that of analog TV but not as good as digital TV so the edges of images had slight blurring. The problem may be that my location is 50 miles from Cleveland, OH where most of the stations originate, and that distance is just too far for the antenna to reach. But, my location was previously able to capture the analog signals originating from there. So rather than use the antenna for my TV I hooked it up to a FM stereo receiver and about half the Cleveland stations come in clear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The antenna performs well. This apex antenna allows us to view several channels/programs on our television without having to pay a cable bill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great alternative to cable I decided to get rid of cable after they started to scramble my signal requiring me to lease their HD converter box and upgrade my plan if I were to continue getting their signal. I mounted this antenna near a window in an upstairs closet. I get great reception of all broadcast channels including a lot of the UHF channels. The HD picture quality is cystal clear, better than when I had cable. I first mounted it in the basement near the connections to all of my existing cables but the reception was a bit spotty. I moved it to the upstairs and pointed it toward the antennas near downtown Seattle and it's perfect now. I bought this model with an amplified signal because I needed about a 90 ft run of cable between the antenna and the farthest TV and it wasn't that much more than the unamplified antennas. When I unplug the antenna, I get a noticeable reduction in reception so the amplification appears to be making a difference (unless it's just not designed to operate properly without being plugged in). I ran new cable from the basement to the attic along the soil stack and then back into the upstairs bedroom closet. I operate four TVs off of this antenna with a couple of splitters along the way. Saves me around $60/month.
