Right now Tracy and I have 2 TVs and one set of rabbit ears to watch Tv off of. The current rabbit ears are some cheap ones from K mart. Nothing fancy about them. In the bedroom TV with the rabbit ears hooked up I can CBS and barely get NBC. That is it. When we move the rabbit ears out to the living room we can barely get Fox, get NBC ok, ABC ok, CBS limited, and a local KUSI channel. Both of the TV's are old school enough that I will be needing the converter box if we stay with rabbit ears. My question is will the digital box help boost the signal so I can pickup channels better then then I do now? Also would a better set of rabbit ears help get the signals better as well? I just do not want to go drop a few hundred bucks on this stuff and not get any better TV. I figure in a year or year and a half we will probably get cable or directv anyway so it is only a short term solution. Cable will run $40-50 a month so it will be cheaper to stay with broadcast but if I am stuck with only 2 channels then I will start forking over for cable even though we are only home for 8-9 days a month.
