Converter Box

I recently purchased a Apex DT250A converter. Right now I'm only getting one channel with the antenna -(RCA Ant1308). I want to know if it would be better for me to get a smart antenna or to just get a better converter. The signal, sound and image quality on this one channel is very good. What should I do?

unless you are in a very strong signal area, that maybe the best you can now until all the station in your area are switch over. You could try using an outdoor antenna and see if that will get you more stations.
