I installed a new Mohu Curve 50 inside antenna to my 47LG50

Customer Question

I installed a new Mohu Curve 50 inside antenna to my 47LG50 TV following instructions provided by the antenna provider and the connection instructions in the LG manual. When I ran the auto channel setup, I only get 10 channels, 4 of which are APT broadcasts and Christian programming. I do not receive any of the local network stations in Montgomery, AL. But all of these towers are well within the 50 mile radius supported by the antenna. What do I need to do to get the networks? I desperately want to dump cable service.
Thanks,
Melva

Hello,

Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I will be glad to assist you with your concern today.

This does happen time to time with certain antenna's, in fact this model while has some good reviews it also has some bad which explain the same problem. You can view them here: http://www.amazon.com/Mohu-Curve-Designer-HDTV-Antenna/product-reviews/B00F3ZO6HU/ref=cm_cr_dp_qt_hist_one?ie=UTF8&filterBy=addOneStar&showViewpoints=0

As a test try holding the antenna and or placing it on something outside of a window/home and see if it is better then which could happen due to construction of home and interference.

Make sure the power is supplied to the unit so that it is amplified.

Note users reviews that state other antenna's provided more channels for them than what this model did, this has to do with many factors which change per user depending on their home, things in the home and location as well as some other things that can effect the signal.

Thank you!

Thank you. I will return the antenna & find one that works! I'm tired of the Cable TV ripoff.
