Going digital has MANY benefits for us RV types, mainly the ability to get QUALITY pictures on our sets, but also in the ease of finding new stations when you go to new areas. The search for me has been over for a while, but I'll help you out with your needs.
If you don't have a Digital Tuner equipped TV, there are a few Tuner Boxes that actually run off of 12 volts that work AWESOME. I use the Aptec 12 volt box bought here: Data Action
The box is only $3.99 with the US coupon that you can get here:
Government DTV website
$4 for a NEW TV tuner card that lets you get DIGITAL signals. Tell me how that could be bad?
'So what' you may say....I get cable. Not everyplace the RV goes may get cable.
"I'll need an antenna"
No, you probably already have one that will work fair, but if you want to MAKE one free that works INCREDIBLE, click here: Home Made Antenna
I have made several of those antennas, here is my most recent version (6 'Bays'):
I don't use coat hangers, but the wire rods used to hang suspension ceilings (a pack is $4 at Lowes/Home Depot) but the antenna works fantastic. I literally took the antennas down from my roof to put up one of these with BETTER RESULTS.
Here are some of the earlier ones I made, and they all OUTPERFORM my professionally installed roof mount TV antenna.
My first 4 Bay antenna
My following 5 Bay antenna
(on a side note, I live in San Diego, that antenna, on my shop, gets ALL of the channels from Los Angeles! None of my professionally installed antennas did that you see below)
Ok back to the RV TV.... Once you have a decent antenna, and a ditigal converter box you will appreciate CRYSTAL CLEAR reception, static and snow free. I assure you, you will get MORE channels with the digital tuner than you get now, WITH THE SAME ANTENNA! Build one of the ones above and you will be amazed.
Don't delay, go digital now and appreciate the difference! Even WITHOUT a HDTV, you will notice a better picture quality with the digital tuner.
