I'd try a bigger antenna. This is the one I use.

Thank you for that suggestion. The thing is (I really do not understand all this) but we got pbs on the vizio in the same spot with the existing antennae. This is a samsung. A little better quality. Would that matter. The remote skips right over ch.11 which is pbs. Is there something I am missing with some setting?

I apologize for the inconvenience. We can only recommend changing the position of the antenna and performing an auto program again. To find out which direction the signal is coming in from you can check out the following site:
