    Canadian Users Help!

    I get such a bad signal on my tv tuner even with an antenna plugged in its not even worth having it. The reason I am asking Canadian users is because I know signal strength is different here rather than the US, Europe and Austrailia. When I try my home TV with no cable and an antenna I get 5 channels that are fairly clear, in my car I get CBC only and it is garbled. Any ideas?

    what is the antenna?

    you must have some interference.

    have you tried a TV around your car?

    diff TV/Antenna on diff. place gives diff results... I would not be surprised its not abnormal.

    It is a TV antenna, not powered but I have tried it outside my car in my garage no better. I might try an antenna with a boost but I want to know if anyone has got it to work.

    I thought FM antenna was different from coax antenna. Was I incorrect?
