Some other questions include suitability of ribbon cable, components required to be compatible with the antenna and why some antennas work fine on some TVs but present a blurred image on others.

Antenna

Some questions regarding antenna is whether 10 year old antennas can receive digital signals, why are they installed so high, what will happen if they break, which end of it should be pointing towards the transmitter and so on.

Masthead

Warranty and coverage for losses

You might have a few more questions regarding your digital antenna. But some people do ask about the warranty that the professional is ready to provide, in case something goes wrong.
