I've been getting local channels on an older tv using a converter box and an inexpensive antenna that I actually have setting on top of a 6-foot aluminum ladder on my back porch. (Hey! It works and has for 2 years!) I just bought a 29" Vizio HDTV. When I attached the antenna on the ladder to the new set, I got no signal. Added to this, I'm moving from my house into an apartment this weekend and very much want to avoid cable if possible.
Anybody out there really good at this type of thing who can recommend an inside antenna that really truly works and/or has suggestions for me to get the new set going for local stations?
