We've been getting lots of questions from viewers about their digital conversion issues. A viewer in Irmo wrote:
I have connected my digital converter box to my analog TV and my indoor antenna. Sometimes the WIS digital signal breaks up, or I get no signal at all.
Unfortunately, this is a common problem. Many viewers who were used to receiving a grainy or ghosty analog signal, may now find that they're losing their digital signal altogether. One of the drawbacks of digital TV is that you either have a beautiful picture, or nothing at all. This can be frustrating to say the least. You can try moving your antenna to a higher location. You can also try investing in an antenna with a signal booster this may help a marginal signal. If you are really having trouble receiving a usable signal with an indoor antenna, you may have to invest in an outdoor model that either fits on your roof or in your attic.
