Mobile TV reception sucks. I've been in a limo before, and the reception isn't great. My advice: don't bother.
it's been about 6 months now that i've been looking for the right TV antenna... Anyone knows where to get a diversity antenna that will go in a tv card or tv? It seems so hard to find one of these!
Will any channels in UHF or VHF get picked up half way decent at all?
I am doing driveway service part time at a Mobil petrol station, and there's this guy who works at mercedes and comes to fill up about 11 cars everyday. Most of them have Tv tuners and the quality are surprisingly good in any directions. He told me that all these cars have stock built in antennas around the windows n doors even if no tv tuners have been installed. Does anyone know how we could build our own diversity antenna around the car in a similar way? even if we had to buy some exsiting antennas and rip them apart to modify or something...
Most antennas that car audio shops are selling have 2 or more outputs that go into expensive tv tuners. We would even buy these as we only have 1 input for our pc tvs. Wouldn't it be just that device that does the antenna switching (diversity) and send the best signal to our pc tuner that we need to find?
Exactly what i was wondering. What has to be done to make a tuner except diversity antennas. I dont know exactly what diversity antennas do but is one for UHF and the other for VHF or does it just pick up the best signal from the antenna that is providing it, hence having two?Originally Posted by M^ck^y
Come on guys, bring up some ideas!!! I'm so keen on getting TV in the car specially after seeing those mercedes
I have a similar antenna question i figured i would post here since you guys are into this.
I was looking to get a tv fm card but I was wondering.
Many of them say they can use external source or CATV but what if i'm in a car? I have no CATV nor am i using an external. Is there a way to connect a antenna or do i not need one? Can I just go to a store and buy an antenna that plugs into the cable input?
If you dont want to use an external source than dont. Same with catv. If you look at pictures of most tv cards, they will have 2 coaxial outputs. One is for your external/catv input and one is usually for the fm antenna.Originally Posted by Heckle0
So there's no answer for tv in car, except if you buy a mercedes
