I live in the San Fernando Valley, and use an indoor TV antenna, for my bedroom, and sometimes some of the channels, get all staticy and fuzzy. Moving the antenna's do cause the channel to work sometimes. But where is a good place to put a antenna to get perfect connection with no fuzzy-ness whatsoever? Are the outdoor TV antenna's better than the indoor TV antenna's?

Well, with digital, you shouldn't have static and fuzz. You might get pixelation, that's when the picture starts to break down into squares.

Regardless, yes, if you have the ability to mount a large antenna on the roof and point it toward Los Angeles, that would be best. Check out this link to figure out what channels you should be able to get at your place:

TV Fool

btw...with the new broadcast HDTV signals, many stations are actually transmitting four different signals. So there are a LOT more channels available now over the air for free. Check out this web site, it shows you what's on including all the subchannels!

TitanTV

Hope that stuff helped.

I have a large outside antenna high up on a pole attached to the gabel of my roof and I get 2 to 13 except 4. I get the other channels but I only watch 28, 50 and 58. 13.3 and 5.3 are movie channels.

I'm also in the SFV and we have an outdoor antenna mounted in the attic. It gets quite a few channels (can't get 9 or 11 sometimes), but sometimes it does cut out, especially in the rain. If we mounted it on the roof we'd probably get the remaining channels.

I use to torrent but I got email messages, reporting me, giving me a warning to stop torrenting so that scared me and I stopped torrenting altogether.
