      What about other stations in the area?  Do you receive KRON, KQED, KDTV, KICU, etc.?  The two stations you mention that you do get crystal clear are both on the VHF band... and they're the only ones on VHF.  All of the other stations are on UHF.   Maybe your TV tuner is not receiving UHF.  Go to the menu to see what you have selected for the input to the TV.  It has to say "Antenna".  If "Cable" is shown, your tuner is looking for the cable frequencies, not the Over The Air frequencies.  Only the VHF band, channels 2 to 13 are the same on both.

      KTVU 2 transmits on channel 44, KPIX 5 on 29, so you have to be able to receive UHF to get them.  Most of the digital signals are not transmitted on the channels the stations use for IDing themselves.  KGO 7, KFTL 28 and KICU 36 are the only ones in the SF-Oakland-San Jose area that transmit on the channel they ID with.

      Good luck!

      Hi all,

      I'm still trying to find out how I can get crystal clear reception for ABC and NBC, but not get anything for FOX or CBS when they're on the same tower? I'm here in Oakland and the stats say I should be able to get all four. I keep moving the antenna and rescanning, but no luck.  Any other suggestions?
      Thanks.
