Hi George,

I don't own a TV, but my wife got one from a house clearance recently, 
so I tried things out with that today.

On the first auto tune, it found most channels.

For the second auto tuned I plugged it into the stronger output of my 
signal booster and it seemed to find all of that channels that I'd want.

So, the antenna and signal booster seems to be fine.
