Question on Samsung TVs

Hi All,

New to the forum. Thanks in advance for all help. I have two Samsung TVs. One is a model UN46F7100 and the other is a UN50NU6900. I also have an HD antenna mounted up in my attic. The 46" seems to be able to capture more OTA signals from the HD antenna vs the 50". Anyone know why? Does the 46" have "better" electronics where it is able to pick up weaker OTA signals? Thanks again.

More likely that the signal is weaker to the 50".

I'm going to assume that the cable going to the 50" is a longer run than the one going to the 46"?

Does the antenna feed into a splitter? Is the splitter an amplifier, or just a splitter?

There is no such thing as an HD Antenna.

When so many of them are marketed as such though, we can't blame the lay-person for not understanding it is just marketing jargon.

Which is a good reason for posting the reality!

Actually, i dont have the 50 hung up. I went back to my 46. Its mounted on the wall above my mantle.
