Hello,

I've bought this dvb tuner :

http://www.pctvsystems.com/Products/ProductsEuropeAsia/Digitalproducts/PCTVnanoStickT2/tabid/248/language/en-GB/Default.aspx

it works perfectly,but the default antenna is not powerful at all. I ask your help to find a booster / amplifier to make the antenna more powerful or another kind of antenna (compatible with the nanostick). I can't accept bulky items. Thanks.

Yeah I am pretty sure that all the antenna's that come with tv tuners are pretty much horrible.  They are meant to be used out on the road to be honest.  Where you can get a more free signal rather than a congested rural area bouncing off houses, etc.  I don't think they have any boosters for something like that.  Good luck!

The type of antenna that you'll need depends on how far away the transmitting antenna is located. Indoor antennas are usually hit and miss unless you live fairly close to the transmitting antennas.

Do you happen to have a general idea of how far away you are from the transmitting antennas (in miles)?

No. I thought that was easy to find an antenna with a medium power that could work almost anywhere,but I'm understanding that is wrong

Your best bet is to try to purchase an antenna that you can return if it doesn't work.
