    Bought a philips 30pw9100d today and got an over the air antena with a 25 watt amplifier.

    This antena only has a 75 ohm coaxial cable coming out of it. This will supply the hd signal to this set?
    Im reading the manual, but it doesnt seem to explain much.

    I have it connected to the only coaxial connection for the tv. I have the input to digital and have selected a channel (13.1) which is scheduled to be airing a show in HD. All i gt on the ecsreen is "weak signal".

    Any help here would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Go to antennaweb.org to determine what type of antenna (strength) and direction it needs to be pointed. The indoor antenna may work out for you, but to get the best signal an outdoor roof antenna is the best bet. If you're lucky all your stations will be transmitting from the same tower, but more than likely you'll need to figure out a way to turn it for the best signal.
