Please click here and enter the information requested. This will tell you what antenna you are going to need to get the channels in your area. I suspect that the problem you are having now is not providing a sufficient signal. After reviewing the information in the link, you have additional questions, please ask.

From the information you have provided I expect the antenna is not providing a sufficient signal to the converter to allow it to work correctly. The signal needs to be stronger for the digital channels to work correctly. I suspect you will need to use an outdoor antenna to get satisfactory results. Please review the information in the links I provided and let me know if you have additional questions.
