Specs: Android
I want to put 2 indoor antennas to my tv. In separate areas so I can switch when channels are bad without having to move it around. I of course have 1 in the coax port but want to put one in an hdm1 cable box port. My tv let's me switch to antenna, cable,vcr ect.
Can what I want be done?

✔ Best Answer
You can have two normal antennas using a switchable coax box on the wall but I'm not sure that's quite what you mean.

Indoor antennas are not good but the best results if used is to put them high in the loft (not next to each other).

Actually I guess that would solve my problem. Just different than what I was wishing for.. Don't always get what you wish for huh. But that would work . Thanks

You can connect two TVs to a single antenna via a splitter, but you will need to use a signal booster as well because you are splitting the signal so it will be too weak without a booster.

An antenna combiner will do the trick like this one >

The splitter will lose a few dB what matters is the signal strengths of the two sources. I did it fine without any problem but our signal strengths were quite good enough. In other words you get the booster if you find you need it, and those at the masthead are the most effective.

I get great signal on most of my channels. If a few of them aren't great I have to move it a foot or so and watch that, then move it back. I just figured if I could hook a second one then I could switch using the options on my Roku tv you know hdm1 ,hdm2 cable , or antenna. But the rf conector seems to be my best option.

Come to think of it a switched splitter (as per my #2) shouldn't lose anything much because it just moves from one to the other. It's the one without the switch that will have some loss.
