HELP :whistling:
I am using a DVB/USB reciever on a laptop through a Status caravan ariel, but it reports "Low signal" unless you are parked within 100 metres of a TV transmitter (Slight exageration, but you get the picture even if I dont). Is there any software or hardware available that will enhance what signal there is, so the DVB can use it? Any input would be much appreciated.
Cheers Robred100
