No, I meant which part? Anaheim? Long Beach? Glendale?

There might be a repeater being worked on near you which may explain why your getting bad reception.

No problem. Since there aren't any repeaters in your area, I'm going to assume that the satellite reception isn't any good. Just two more questions:

1. Where is your antenna?
2. In MENU -> ANTENNA AIMING, what does it say?

If anything, I think it's the position of the antenna. Try aiming it out an east-facing window or try putting it outside. (For best results, try to put the antenna on the roof)
