I am wanting to get an outdoor antenna for a new house in 77396 zip code.
On my previous home in the same neighborhood I had a GS-2200 which worked pretty good. I used the antenna selector and it suggested a FV-HD30 FreeVision Antenna. I was wondering which antenna would be most recommended for this area.
I am installing new satellite service planning to combine the signals from the roof and split them out at our wiring panel. I am assuming I would add the amplifier either in the attic or at the wiring panel. I will then split the DTV signal to 3 TV's in the house. If I use the GS antenna I am also wondering if I really need the amplifier that comes with the GS-2200 or if I could get away with the GS-1100 alone? Would I also need an amplifier I use the FV-HD30 FreeVision Antenna?
Finally I am curious about the best mounting options. On my last house I used a DS-1000 that is separated from the Dish antenna. I see there is a DS-1111 option to mount the antenna along with a Dish antenna. Is it better to keep these separated or does it matter much? I think you get a little extra height with the DS-1111 but it could subject the antenna to more wind vibrations.
Installer comes in a couple weeks so help would be appreciated so I can get all the right equipment in advance.
