Despite-The-Obvious-Advantages-Of-Digital-TV-Its-M268

  1. 1. Despite the obvious advantages of digital TV its main disadvantage is its reception. Truly, analog TV reception was so much better. if the reception is bad the analog TV still made it possible to watch TV even if the images are grainy, but withthe digital TV, there is simply no way to watch and the regular home viewer would not even know how to get the signal back up again.
  2. 2. Because of the reception issues the CEA or the ConsumerElectronics Associated developed a standard which will allow theDVD tuner to control and position smart antennas This is referred toas the EIA/CEA-909A
  3. 3. A digital TV converter box which is EIA/CEA-909A compliant cancontrol around 16 positions of the antenna The control is madepossible by the special port of the smart antennas found in the digitalTV converter box
  4. 4. This is also made possible with the RF antenna connector But justlike digital TV technology, smart antennas are also a new technologyand there are not a lot of choices out there
  5. 5. It does not help that these are more expensive than the regularantennas There are outdoor smart antennas as well as indoor smartantennas
  6. 6. Because not much is really known about them, from the point ofview of the consumer that is, it is very important to read the productreviews and to know about the product specifications There areeven some antennas marketed as "smart" when all they are isregular antennas so be very careful
  7. 7. One tip to clue you in is the specification for smart antennas wherethe 3000A is not part of the antenna interface The 3000A is for smalloutdoor multidirectional antennas
  8. 8. Truth is, there are some products out there where the "smart" is justpart of the product name Be aware also of the term'omnidirectional' which is useful for areas where there areoff-air digital TV signals coming in from different directions
  9. 9. But this is not good to use in areas where there are ghostingproblems
