    Just started using the integral freeview facility on my Pioneer 435xde, but I obviously don't have a suitable aerial. Is there a particular brand or type of aerial which is superior, or do I just need a standard broadband digital aerial?

    As far as I know a plain wideband aerial that is rated for digital reception is all you need, various sizes (numner of elements) are on offer which I assume would be an issue based on location and local reception difficulties.

    A word with a local installer would clarify things:)

    Thanks guys. Do you know the best place to buy these aerials. Are they available everywhere? I may have a go at installing one by myself.

    The aerials that i listed do link to an online shop. I don't think you'll find them in your local diy store as the aerials listed are used by installers, you usually find the aerials in diy stores are the cheap ones.
