How Can I Improve Reception On My LCD TV?

Last Update date : 2012.01.10

 Pixelating, ghosting, and snow on LCD TVs are often caused by a weak signal. There are two functions your can use that might strengthen a weak signal and improve your reception:

•  The LNA function  

•  The Fine Tuning function.

Both are described below.
