Not to hijack the thread...but does anyone have any real world comparison between the Wingman and the King Jack? Locally, there is not a huge difference in the price. Just curious. Thanks!!!

The FCC set a timeline for the conversion from analog to digital television (DTV). Analog television was to cease in the United States on December 31, 2006.
One of many reasons for this was to reclaim spectrum from the broadcasters.

Thanks Paul. I admit to not reading every post. I know I should, but ran short on time.

It happens lol
As far as range about the same. Just that the Jack seems to have wider "view"
But no scientific measurements were taken in the comparison!

So I have to revive this thread. Supposedly this tt has a signal amp but I'm not sure it does. I only get like 5 channels and most seem choppy. The tt is in my driveway , I live minutes away from Chicago and I get like 35 channels in my home with HD antenna. What am I doing wrong in tt?

Could be several things.
1. Be sure the amp power is turned on. Small button on face plate that has the TV ant connection on it. Should be a red, green, or blue LED lit when on. See Photo

2. Could have a loose or bad coax connection. May have to remove something to get to connection in wall.

3. If everything else is OK, you have the cheap no-name antenna FR has been using which is useless. Just for kicks I bought a $25 external amplified Digital TV antenna w/rotor on Amazon and it added several new channels over the one on the TT now.

The button is only on one face plate.

Wow, i found it hidden in the cabinet behind the tv. It was off, should I just leave it on all of the time ? I wonder why it was off?



It was behind this tv , out of reach.
