Can I connect the antenna to multiple amplifiers?2019-05-23T10:15:12+00:00

The TV signal amplifier will boost the TV signal to each of your TVs, but will also increase the noise on your line if the signal is amplified too much. Increased electrical noise on your line may cause static distortion, duplicate or “ghost” images and audio problems. A cable amplifier should only be used once per-split to avoid these errors.

How does the picture compare to cable or satellite TV?2017-10-26T17:10:39+00:00

Broadcast TV picture quality is as good as or better than cable or satellite. Cable and satellite operators often compress local broadcast channels before re-broadcasting. The compression reduces picture quality compared to over-the-air broadcast. Compressing signals opens up more bandwidth and allows providers to squeeze in more channels nobody watches.

Q:  I want the best antenna you have in receiving as many TV channels as possible and I want to hook to 4 TV’s plus can each TV watch different shows while all on same antenna? I’m in Michigan, I have 2 story house can mount on top peak of house.

Answer: The LAVA HD 2605 is our best selling and top rated model which can recieve TV signals up to 150 miles range. However, the number of TV stations you can recieve depends on your location and geography. The signal strength depends on how far away you are from TV transmitters. If hills, trees, buildings, or other geographic features are in between the broadcast towers and the antenna, the signals might not be able to reach your antenna.

For example, shown in the following picture, if you live in Lansing, MI, you may probably recieve at least 24 channels because 24 transmitters are set within 60 miles of Lansing. (Remember our antenna can pick up signals up to 150 miles).

LAVA HD 2605 has dual outputs which means you could connect two TV without TV splitter. If you want to hook up to 4 TVs, you do need a TV splitter which allows you to hook up up to 8 TVs.

Each TV can play different shows while all on same antenna.

Q:  How long is the cable we can use on the lava 150 mile antennas? Seem to have reception issues with long runs.

Yes. We highly recommend that the cable is within 50 feet. When cable lengths reach over 100 feet, as much as 1/3 of the signal can be lost.  If you are using a splitter, this could also weaken signal strength.

What channels will I get?2017-10-26T17:14:18+00:00

Depending on your location and media market, the number of channels will vary. Almost all of our RURAL customers report they could receive about 20 channels. The most common channels are: NBC, FOX, CBS, ABC, PBS, THE CW, QUBO, TELEMUNDO, UNIVISION, RTV, THIS TV, ION, ME TV & WEATHER CHANNELS.

Remember, every channel you pick up has up to 3 subchannels. For example, if your NBC is on channel 5, you will also pick up NBC 5.2 and NBC 5.3 subchannels. Usually the 5.2 is an all day movie channel and the 5.3 is a 24 hour local weather channel. Each channel is unique, expect many different programming options.
