I am using an external UHF antenna ostensibly pointed towards Kaukau. gbpvr scan gets about 70 strength on most channels. But using a HVR900H when I view the recordings I take, every now and then I get severe pixellation across the entire image and sometimes (albeit rare) a burst of audio static in the audio stream.  I do plan to try a Nova 500 T HD instead but am wondering how are others are faring reception wise

Thanks

Laurence

We don't watch TV much these days but we had a few hours this week due to the weather. I am using just the small antenna that was bundled with my USB receiver and have had no problems with reception...

Has anyone around Hataitai (Wellington) managed to get a descent signal?  My analog VHF reception is not that great at the moment. I am not sure if the cause is the aerial, cable or just location. Which UHF antenna would be best?

I would like to know before I splash out on a new UHF antenna and HD box.

Cheers
