- Answer I previously had one of those flat ones that was powered. I had to put it in certain places and positions to get all channels. In particular, I couldn't hide it behind the TV. But even with the flat antenna in the open, the signal would still sometimes break up. The Core Innovations ball seems to get all the channels while sitting inconspicuously on the shelf behind a vase. It's much more unobtrusive. This is working better for us than any flat ones that we've tried.
QuestionHow long is the coax cable?
- Answer Hi Harry, please be advised that this ANT801DCR coax cable length is 9.8'. TO know more information about this product, you may call our customer service hotline 1-833-909-2673, Mondays to Fridays from 9am to 5pm PST. Or email us at email@example.com.
- Answer The lights are an indication of signal strength at the antenna. They will be on as long as the antenna is plugged in.
QuestionI want to use this antenna at a rural cabin about 75 miles from the transmitters. The cabin has an aluminum roof. Will this roof material effect the reception of this antenna?
- Answer Yes, if the roof is between the broadcast station and the antenna you want to hook up to your TV. Devices are often built into metal cases to prevent stray radio emissions from affecting them, same principle applies here. Even a thick wall may block a portion of the signal. Placing the antenna in front of a window may work, it depends upon the angle the signal is traveling, and the strength of the signal, but your best chance at that distance is an outdoor antenna.
QuestionWill trees in the area block the antenna from receiving the station's signal? Trees do block signals on most antennas
- Answer We have massive trees in yard and everywhere around us..., apparently there is no interference from them as this unit pulls in far more channels than we had expected!
QuestionIs this wireless? How does it connect to the TV? I see a power cord that needs to be plugged into a wall socket. Does anything else have to be plugged in?
- Answer It has a coax cable hardwired into it, which you would hook the other end into your tv tuner, and a power cord you plug into the unit and an electrical socket. It is not wireless.
QuestionWhen i plug in the antenna, i lose most of the channels. When I unplug the antenna, i see more channels. I thought I would see more channels with the antenna plugged in, is there something not working as expected with the antenna?
- Answer As I understand antennas from months of research-- the A/C plug is considered an amplifier and doesn't increase the number or quality of channels *unless * you are using splitters or junctions to connect multiple tvs. If the antenna is plugged directly via coaxial cable you do not need the amplifier. I don't know if the signal (blue lights) will still work without being plugged in but I would rely more on your tv picture quality than the blue lights. My opinion: it's working correctly without electricity.
- Answer Do you have antenna wiring running between your TVs VIA a signal splitter? if the answer is"no" or "I don't know", then the yes you would want one for each TV you want to watch, or you need to disconnect, and carry it from room to room reconnecting to the other set.
