Better TV without a satellite?

We have a king antenna on top of our Thor RV but it is just not working for us right now and I cannot afford to install a satellite dish right now. Does anyone use a indoor HD antenna or a booster? Does it help and what is a good one to buy?

King is boosted. Weak signal, no fix with indoor antenna.

I had trouble with the King also and am still not really happy. With that said first off is your boost button pushed in? You do not need an additional boost as long as the one provided is on. Behind the wall plate where the cable connects I would make sure everything is more than finger tight. I found my connections were very loose. I would also buy a "gold" spliter and change out the one that came with your unit. The splitter should be somewhere close to the wall plate.

Ask any cable TV technician; the "Gold" splitters are crap, the silver splitters are the better ones.

I didn't have a signal problem but I did check all my connections. All were finger loose, not tight. Some I got more than a full turn, others just needed a snug up. It's worth your time to check them particularly if you are having reception problems.
