I assume Schedules Direct license with Tribune Media Services gives them access to all their TV guide content. While it's not exactly useful to us, it's not overly surprising that TMS would have...

My problem is really with the VHF channels- WJLA and and WUSA. Do those come in OK? I was looking at the ClearStream antennas, but they don't have a lot of gain in the VHF range.

That appears to be the same antenna as the RCA ANT751R. As far as I can tell, the ANT751 was the original version for analog/digital, and the 751R was tuned for digital channel frequencies. Amazon...

I don't think the two main VHF channels are moving back to UHF, although I don't know how to find that definitively. After the Google searches, I see this is a relatively common problem. These...

No metal roof, but I do have a very large and tall tree directly in front of my house, right in the path of the broadcast antennas.

Thanks. Those ChannelMaster antennas seem to have slightly better VHF gain.

Yeah, it's a two-story townhouse. The attic isn't exactly small, but the rafter supports would make a big directional antenna a bit awkward. It could probably be done, but I've been looking at the...

Suburbs of DC- Montgomery County.

You're only going to get CC if you use an over-the-air ATSC tuner or use CableCard. Though, if your cable provider was previously TWC, then I'd worry that the channels would be DRMed and thus unable...

Any idea why a show would be marked copy-never in from within OpenDCT, but the channel works fine through VLC? It happened on AMC with Walking Dead last night.
