be very impressive inside first floor of a two level house, but no signal at all make my wander maybe something is wrong!

Looks like I am in a very bad FreeView coverage area, St Johns, Auckland.

I tried plug outdoor antenna (normal one, not UHF) on the roof on my HVR900H and only get about 60% signal strength and 10% signal quality.
Looks like a no go. The strange thing is I can not receive analog signal as well, makes my TV tuner card useless.

Any one know could I improve the signal quality by install a UHF outdoor antenna and how much is going to cost, I think
that may be working as freeview website coverage map indicate I am in a "likely" area?
