With the airwaves switching to digital in Feb, I was hoping to get the local TV stations in HD (mainly for sports and a couple of network series). I've tried a number of (indoor) amplified antennas from Radio Shack, etc. without luck. Has anyone else been able to get OTA (over the air) TV signals around the downtown area? By the way, I recall the closest towers are in Miami and Boca. Thanks!

I'm not in downtown, but are you having issues with all the channels or just some? Reason I mention is that I have noticed 7 & 10 are the hardest ones to get, and thats with an external antenna on a dish. If your having issues with all, you have to get the antenna closer to a window or outside if possible.
