THANK YOU steelpony 5555 found the little button you talked about and bigger than sh-- I got 18 channels and by the way I already bought a flat screen but I guess that little switch (amplifier) did the job--Thanks again--next step is to figure out how to get the NASCAR races--RICH
NOTE: the example I found.. Got some bad reviews. Which is why I say "Example"
I have two one is a DTV-Pal, no longer made it appears, it was from Echostar (DishNetwork) the remote says DISH on it) the other is an Insignia from Best Buy, this is identical in all way save the paint job to the Zenith, Zenith used to be a quality line but now is a property of LG enectronics and I have NEVER had an LG product I was 100% happy with.. That said the Insignia does work well, provided you change channels every once in a while.. leave it on the same "Service" (They are called services now) for a week and it locks up and you have to unplug it. I'm told newer ones do not do that.
NOTE: Get a converter with analog pass through, this is important.
Installing the converter....
Some folks with more than one tv try to do it this way.
This does not work, it kills the antenna and may damage the converter.
Antenna----Switch--*--Converter---Television is the proper way to do it.
Note. if you have more than one TV the second is from *----Converter2---TV2
My Install Antenna--Switch---Converter---ReplayTV DVR---TV
Home is where I park it.
