Hey guys, ive finally had enough of my crappy tv reception.
At the moment i have a single "rabbit ears" type antenna mounted to the rear windscreen, and a powered amplifier (which actually has 2 inputs) connected to the screens internal tv tuner.

The reception i get, unless in a really high quality reception area, is shocking, and especially when moving.

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to what sort of antenna(s) to get to improve my reception ? I know its not really a huge deal most of the time, but its just something id like to have fixed.

Cheers, Dan

you really need a tuner with rolling reception. the JVC in car tv tuner does this and as far as i know gives very good reception.

Go to a Digital STB, much more suited to mobile reception.

Yeah you prob need the fancy antennaes which have 4 points in the car for reception and automatically switches between them but I think you need an exxy receiver/tuner for that as well.

Lol, i just use the radio antennae for mine and get reasonable reception most times.
