Why are digital signals so inconsistent?
We live out in the country and have a roof antenna. We have the digital converter boxes on all our TVs. We have gone from receiving about 8 channels to 18-10. This morning, I couldn't get some of the stations, so I re-scanned. Then I got 39! Some of them were repeats. Some were stations more north of here.
This afternoon, alot of them were gone ("no signal").
I'm back to about 20. There are times when I have taped a show on my VCR and half of it is great reception, then all of a sudden it goes black with "no signal". What gives?
Does it have to do with the atmospheric conditions?
So far, I find the digital change pretty much a PITA.
