Stronger signal strength on USB freeview stick?


Established Member
Hi, i am interested in buying one of these but due to previous experience the signal you get is pretty rubbish because of the crappy little aerial you get.

Was wondering if there was anyway to boost the signal of the usb stick to get a stutter free picture? I live in a digital tv area the signal on my tv is 100% fine, but cant get it quite perfect on my pc

something like this maybe? http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?ModuleNo=221728&doy=31m12&C=SO&U=strat15


(also, are all the freeview sticks in the same, or are some better then others? any recomendations? thanks)

I wouldn't waste your money...run a lead from your main aerial to the USB stick...that's as good as you'll get.
They are all similar in performance.
