Best TV aerials for Loft in UK (Crystal Palace)

Added by Steve G over 1 year ago

Hi,

I've been playing around with tvheadend the last few days. Great bit of software.

I think my TV aerial in the loft is not great. Can anybody recommend a good aerial. I was going to feed several Pis in the loft and then have a booster next to my TV downstairs. I'm not sure if its best to place the booster next to the TV or keep this up in the loft also?

Can anybody explain the SNR and Signal values in the status page. I'm not sure if a high number is better etc...
Whats the best tool on Linux to monitor real time signal stats why I position my aerial?

Many thanks!

Put an active log aperiodic in the loft this will set the noise margin and then you can split and boost where you want.
Don't put too much up in the loft, summer temps can be high.
Bonne chance....S
