The original feed from the roof aerial is split and amplified in the
roofspace and supplied to about 6 or 7 wall points. From the wall, it
is a direct feed to the PC tuner card. These aren't the fancy type F
connectors that I have read about though, just standard wall jacks.
This is a brand new house though, with a digital specific aerial.

This is in New Beith, which is out Greenbank way. I am about 10kms as
the crow flies from his house and have OK reception with a much older
aerial (18years?) and my three Avermedia DVB-T tuner cards. I haven't
tried his server at my house though, perhaps I should???
Thanks for your help Lindsay. Any more hints welcome, I am at a loss
of where to go, without trying another tuner and that might just be a
waste of money!
