    You fitting this into a CarPC based car?

    Would be better just to get the antenna, then buy a USB Freeview TV card.

    My old install used a 4way diversity wideband antenna and I have managed to get Freeview signals on the move in some areas.

    I am going to purchase a USB Freeview to integrate into my PC, will tell all how it goes.

    To be honest I would try whatever you have. I have had Freeview working off wire coat-hangers.

    I got my antenna a few years ago from a company on Ebay. I cant find the antenna tho.

    It is also worth looking in some indoor antennas e.g. Argos. I was browsing a catalogue the other day and found a Digital compatible indoor 12v antenna. This may work too and its only 20 quid.

    I am progressing loads with my install so will defo let u all know how it goes.
