Setting up a high-definition flat-screen antenna for the TV is easy with PrimeCables. Browsing the different HDTV antenna categories, you’ll find several home theater accessories that can help including indoor HDTV antennas, outdoor antennas, signal amplifiers, power inserters, signal splitters, and TVs and monitors.
The first step to setting up your antenna for the TV is in getting your television ready. Go into your television’s setup menu and find inputs. Set your input to “Antenna”. Always ensure the correct input has been selected prior to getting the antenna set up. You will need to ensure you have the correct input to search for channels.
From there, set up your antenna. If it’s an outdoor HDTV antenna, it may take a lot of experimentation to find the right direction to set it in. If it’s an indoor antenna, these are evidently much easier to physically adjust. If you’re using a signal amplifier, signal splitter, or anything similar, this is the time to make sure it’s all properly installed.
Now’s the fun part. Scan the channels on your TV to see what the television’s tuner is able to identify. By adjusting the high-definition antenna, you can orientate it towards different directions which could increase or decrease the amount of channels you have. If you’re getting a fuzzy picture, you may want to try adjusting slightly the direction of your antenna. If your television’s tuner has picked up no channels on your indoor or outdoor HDTV antenna, something’s wrong and you should check all components of your antenna chain.
Keep in mind that to optimize the amount of channels you have, you have to complete a full scan every time you change the position of your antenna placement. You may want to keep notes any time you adjust the antenna to see where it fits best in relation to the amount of channels you receive. You may receive up to 20-25 channels in major cities across Canada and in rural communities, it may be as low as three or four. Needless to say, there is a lot of free TV out there especially when one is combining an HDTV antenna with media streaming devices and an Internet connection. Be patient, experiment a little, and we’re almost sure you’ll be pleasantly surprised with what you come away with.
