    Hi
    Yes I have pushed the button "Scan" (lower left corner) in the Settings --> Scan menu that pops up when the program starts. I push the button, it's scans and then after a while (aprox. 1 min) shows me nothing :-( There are no TV or DAB channels after the scan... :-( It just shows me a blank white screen and then i choose the setting menu again and I have no channels/stations to add.
    I think it's a bad device. I know I have reception, because my old Nova-T works. But I want this because it has both dab and dvb-t.
    I think I will call the support line and ask for help. It's wired, because I know alot about hardware and software as Im educated IT-engineer, but this little device just don't work...argh

    i bought one in the end, the reception with the included antenna is a bit suspect. reception with an external aerial is fine though.

    Is this inside a house or in a car or what you're referring too?

    Do think it would be possible to modify a car antenna cable, and change the connector to a type that fits in the piranhas connector for external antenna? If so, it would be possible to have a permanent connection to an external antenna, trough the carradio-antenna.

    the reception with an external car antenna is fine. no problems at all. I'd say it was as good as a headunit although the sound doesn't sound as good as FM, sounds a bit harsher but there is no static even on the move.

    I bought a blaupunkt window aerial for the car and its really good, just plugs in using RF connectors (I they are sma but can't remember off the top of my head)

    RR Skin integration

    Hi folks, this sounds very promising. Has anyone integrated the Terratec Cinergy Piranha in a RR Skin yet?
