Default Headphone Antenna & Sports Ticker,,

My first weekend listening to NFL on Stiletto. I have 2 problems. First, does anyone get more than 1 to 2 bars of signal with the headphones? When i check on the antenna aiming, the sat signal never goes beyond the first segement of the bar, even with a clear view to the sky. I get dropouts when there are trees on the distant horizon, say like 50 feet away. I'd like to know if this poor reception is typical with the headphones. Also, the sports ticker seems to be unstable. I pick all the NFL teams on the setup, but even with 10 games being played, the ticker spoadically shows a score and then disappears and may not come back for several miutes. My S50 seems to continually roll the scores, but not the Stiletto. Somewhat disappointed in the reception and the sports ticker. Any thoughts?

1 to 2 bars of signal with the headphones seems normal.... It is what I get but unless I go under tress I don't get drop-outs.

The sports ticker is different and I don't care for the new setup. It only shows scores when they change. So if your team scores any points it will show up, but only for about 10 seconds. It is a really crappy setup compared to the S50.
