Hi all, Ive just bought a tunner and I was wondering what would be a good areal to purchase? I have checked my post code and according to many sites that I've been on I have a good reception and I've had no problems getting all the freeview channels. It has to be an indoor areal due to the builing I'm living in (listed builing, first floor). I pressumed that the AM/FM/DAB was the same areal but after doing a little bit of research I'm not too sure anymore. everytime I think I've found a good areal I do a little bit of research on it only to find that it's getting very mixed reviews.
I've been given the impression that if I get a splitter then I can run the DAB and the AM/FM off of my TV areal, is this true?
I just wanted an areal that was around £40 or under that would give me DAB/AM/FM, if not both then at least one or the other.
Some of the problems I've encoutered in searching for an areal is poor reception according to some, cheaply made, cable not long enough, ugly as sin or they have a magnetic base which I'm not sure about, I don't want it to effect any other components of my system (amp, power amp and CD player). I've looked at flat panel areals with a signal booster that look so good that I'd be happy for them to be on the top shelf of my hifi unit but then just as I'm about to buy I read reviews that contradict one another, I don't know if this is because you have got someone writing the review who is 100 miles away from a tower and hopes to still get a signal because they have spent £30 more on an areal.
Any help would be greatly appreciated and please don't worry about coming across as being patronising as I know nothing about tunners or areals.
