Using The ClearStream Micron
Hooking up the CSM1 was easy and took only a few minutes. For HDTVs which DO NOT have a built-in HD tuner and have one in a separate tuner box (like myself who own a Samsung DTB-H260F), you simply screw the coaxial cable from the CSM1 into the external tuner.
Once the connection was made, I managed to receive 17 channels with the Samsung DTB-H260F. I was quite surprised. Previous antennas didn't get more than 4 or 5 channels. The CSM also wasn't placed in a proper area to receive channels, either. All I did was set the CSM1 on my Samsung HDTV Tuner and the DTB-H260F scanned more channels than I have ever seen. Very cool.
