Ok pardon the seemingly simple question but I need a little help here.
I got a simple FM antenna (cheap wire that splits into a Y) and has a coax-like connection with my ATI TV Tuner card, so I thought, hey I can connect this to my home stereo and finally get FM radio.
The problem is it sounds GREAT when I am holding it.. and crappy once I mount in on the wall permanently. My wall now has a few dozen holes as I have tried to move it around the room and it still sounds bad. Like the FM stereo light is flickering as it tries to tune into the station :(
I thought maybe the cable needed to be taunt, but that didn't help. One thing, if they touch eachother - nadda - just dead air.
Can anyone recommend a solution to help get crystal clear sound from these babies without me holding them?
