Whats a good tv tuner antenna I can buy? I bought a used nav tv unit but the diversity antenna sucks, almost none of the channels show up.

I may just buy the one on avelectronic's website. I dont know if its the placement of the antennas but I get none of the channels except maybe 1 or 2, and even those go in and out and are blurry and has a ton of static. Why bother even selling kits with those antennas? I dont even live in a rural area, I live right in between 2 major cities (dc and baltimore).

I was actually thinking about doing the same thing, it seems to be the only good option.

Someone on these forums recomended these guys, I just purchased an amplified antenna myself, someone said the avelectronics antenna isn' t that strong http://owdonald.com/
how is your tv reception? I'm going to play around with the place of the diversity antennas before i get amplified ones.

I just ordered the clear apollo diversity antenna. I'll let you guys know how that performs.

*edit*
I just talked to a rep at owdonald.com and he said the clear ones ahve no where near the reception quality as the metal rod antennas. So i just changed my order.

There are some people that have reported pretty good tv quality even while moving with a quality antenna. The one I just bought has 4 26db gain amplifiers for each of the 4 antennas.

From experience IMO, in most cases TV Tuners are a waste. The reception regardless of the antenna (i.e. amplified, passive, diversity, etc) is poor at best. Placement of the antenna will help some, so before completing you install you may want to temporarily mount the antenna and see how it works out. When your car is in motion dont expect too much as far as a clean pic, but while stationary it can be tolerable. Good Luck
