I do not have an HD tuner yet, but I hear consistently that HD signals do not give the same broadcast range that the old NTSC transmitters did.
But assuming that your TV's tuner is of the right type, it may just be that you are too far from the source...
The manual for the LG 22" TV that we have says......256 QAM.
...and thanks doorgunner (Tim) we will take you up on the 'coupon'. Looks like we may need to get the 'box'.
