If it will work for you - it's a bit more than just one month of cable payments. I can watch around 30 channels in my house and it's enough (news, cartoons...) combined with i-net on demand stuff

Antenna advertising is like tents, cut the usable number in half. A 4 person tent is good for 2 people. A 60 mile antenna is good for 30 miles. I'm 65 miles from the tower, my best bet is walking my neighborhood and asking if I can come in and watch TV to see the channels they get and how many splitters they have. Tired of hoping these new little antennas work, putting them together, laying it on the roof just to be dissatisfied. Maybe I just buy a 10' old fashioned one and be done.

Last year, I believe it was, some SDer sad something to the effect that for most practical purposes that an old "rabbit ear" antenna is about as good as any. Bought one for $7.00+ at Walmart & seems to work fine (and I live in a small town, 75-100+ miles from a fairly large city)

For people looking to buy an antenna, start at www.antennaweb.org you would be surprised at how different reception can be even a few blocks away

For what you get this seems a little pricey.

I got one in the $30 price range and it worked great for me. These are always on sale.

i had a disk like this on my roof for a few years.

it's only purpose is to get strong signal from omnidirectional sources and without having to keep reacquiring each tower location. so you typically use these on mobile homes and when you live between two urban areas (each with their own major broadcast towers).

i got mine because i was trying to get programming from NY, NJ and CN at the same time. it worked for NY 8m and NJ 10m, but since CN is >20m away, all I got was 1 redundant pbs station from them, so for 1 station i decided i was better off with a stronger more conventional unidirectional (yagi+dipole) antenna.

keep in mind whenever you buy a cheap chinese antenna gimmick that includes an amp, it's usually the amp - not the antenna giving you most of the gains - which basically means the antenna itself was crap to begin with - as no antenna needs an amp unless it's to compensate for a very long cable run.

I also see mrhockeypuck's point. And although this thread's one sounds promising, I found this one (Clearstream 4) lived up to its distance promise in my attic.

For those of you who've cut the cord, how are you recording shows now? Any links to DVRs that are great and/or links to how people set up these systems?

I have tried a few different options. The roof antenna surprisingly didn't work the best. The Mohu Leaf worked good. Winegard flat antenna was by far the best in my experience.

look at the 8-bay bowtie antennas like the 4228HD by channel master. I've had great luck with it and the Titan 7777 pre-amp. I didn't want the huge 10 footer, and this is the closest you can get without going full out with it.

IMO none of them are very good. I have one that I can set manually that was part of a converter box, but most of the time I just pull it from their website when it gets posted there. OTA for live tv, and stream it if you want to watch after the fact.

I made single and dual loop using thick coat hangers. Get more channels than listed for my area. I'll never buy cheap or expensive, indoor outdoor, flat or any kind antennas again.
