Attic Mounted HDTV Digital Antennas

If you have opted for an attic placed HDTV digital antenna, here are a few simple steps needed to set it up.

  1. Place the antenna in an area of the attic that will receive the best reception.  Use the digital reception tool to help you determine which direction to point/face the antenna in even if you have purchased a omni-directional antenna.
  2. Attach the antenna to the highest inside point in your attic to maximize signal strength.
  3. Run the antenna cable into your cable or communication junction box.  Be careful not to kink or crimp the cable - this will interrupt the signal.
  4. Turn on the televisions that will be receiving the broadcasts and let them search for digital signals and stations. If this does not happen automatically, go into the settings to have it scan for digital signals.
