Hi

I bought wintv 1700 last week in addition to wintv 150 (analogue) + regular analogue tv . But when i try tune in analogue on tv. It doesn's seem to pick up many channels and many are in poor quality. I have 2x 2 ways splitter to split signal
to sum up I have
1 signal from the wall ----> 2 analogues + 1 digital

How do i improve signal quality?

1) How good is your raw signal?, plug each item into the wall socket and see if there is any improvement in signal, if there is then you splitting the feed is causing the degradation.(see 2)

2) get a better splitter ( 2 2-ways are likely to cause a fairly unbalanced load on the connection, you may be best to get a single 3 way splitter)

2) Also are you the only feed from the aerial ( not in a apartment block/multiple dwelling?),
