    For HD, I use a Samsung SIR-T151 OTA receiver.

    If there is a loud sharp noise in the room, I seem to "lose" the signal for a moment. After a second, everything is ok.

    I use an outdoor antenna.

    Any ideas why this is happening?

    Wow, I've never heard of anything like that with my 151.

    I'd try a slight reloactin or turning of the outside antenna. If for no other reason, I just can't see much else have impact on it.


    I mean, I get stuff like this from time to time, low power transimitions still here in denver, using an indoor powered antenna. Even an automobile going down the street can cause it at times.


    Best of luck with it.

    For automobile maybe some of the signals you are recieving are reflected from the street/other houses. So when a car goes by something gets in the path of the signal.

    I have a rotator, which I have to use to get my locals.

    It happens on any channel (or antenna position).

    I can understand signal path disruption as has been described, but I can duplicate the problem at any time by simply yelling or slaming a book on a table.

    Sounds like it could be a loose connection at the antenna terminal at either the wall or the unit, perhaps even inside the unit at or near the antenna terminal. Have you checked the tightness of all the connectors?
