I want to get a digital TV signal finder. Winegard has the SensarPro and there is the King Controls SureLock.
With the SensarPro, you take out the original amplifier on the ceiling and replace it with the SensarPro. It has a nice digital readout for the signal strength plus some other nice features. The problem is that the antenna is in another room and not within line of sight. As well, the signal indication would be on the ceiling and hard to read. Seems like it would need two people unless you want to keep walking back and forth. Technically, I like this one better.
With the SureLock, it gets wired in between the TV and amplifier on the ceiling. This one is surface mounted. It could be mounted at the 2nd TV in the bedroom so you can rotate the antenna and see the display. It's rather basic and just has 4 LEDs for signal strength indication. Operationally, this one would work better.
What have others used and how are they working? Does the SureLock work good enough?
As a side note, why one earth do RV manufacturers mount the TV amplifier on the ceiling behind the TV where you can barely reach it?? And when the TV is pulled out on the articulating mount, it gets even harder to reach.
In our TT, if they had mounted it 18" farther to one side, it would be very easy to access. If we put the SensarPro in there, you wouldn't be able to see the readout...
