    I just hooked up my Zenith DTV1080 a couple days ago. All signals come in with a signal strength ranging from just above Normal to medium good. Yet I see pixelation often. Sometimes just part of a screen for a second, sometimes the whole screen breaks up for > 10 seconds. Other than the pixelation (and some lip sync issues), the picture is great, particularly the PBS HD channel.

    I'm currently using a Radio Shack double bow-tie antenna sitting on top of the TV. Can I expect the pixelation to decrease if I get a bigger/better antenna? Or move it onto the roof?

    If you're getting the channels with a bow tie but have some breakup you can expect much better results with an attic or roof antenna. I made the switch to an attic antenna and it's GREAT.
