    hey, im about to buy eyetv and have seen that the ariels are bad bla bla bla. basically, i CANNOT use the roof-top ariel as that is plugged into the family TV and i doubt my family would thank me for unplugging that. so can anyone recommend a good ariel that is compatible with either eyetv diversity or hybrid (if youre not sure if it is or not please write anyway and i will look it up), btw i live in the UK

    Er, I'm sort of guessing (I'm not familiar with the term aerial). I mean I wouldn't see why you couldn't split a signal and plug more than one device into whatever you're getting the signal from. It's just electrons.

    i live in england and don't know what term they use in the US but the aerial is the thing on your roof that you plug into your TV and what you plug into the eyetv usb stick to pick up signal if that helps

    EDIT: might be called antenna?

    It sounds like you may need a coaxial "A-B" switch. This requires you to manually switch from Antenna or cable.

    I have one of these and it works good. My only problem is finding a better internal antenna to receive the OTA HD.

    I use Philips MANT510 High Performance Amplified Indoor Uhf/Vhf/Fm/HDTV Antenna. It's a table top model, and it works great! It's $33.47 on Amazon.com right now.
