I can watch through my windows media player on my pc. Unfortunately bbc1,itv & channel not clear picture, bb2 and channel 5 no picture or sound.

How can I watch tv with a clear picture for all channels through the pc.

Is this streaming? Or through a TV tuner, you dont make it at all clear.

It is a TV tuner

Windows Media Player is not a TV tuner.
What Astec 123 asks applies how are you watching TV?

I am using PAL/SECAM/DVB - T Desk top TV Turner (Windows Media Centre)from dell.

I think you will need a digital aerial input. If you only have a normal (analogue) aerial on your house, you may need a new aerial fitted.

Dear Graham - thank you I will looking to this and let you know how I get on.

A normal analogue TV aerial is exactly what is used to bring in Freeview digital transmissions.

However, you do normally need a wideband rather than narrowband aerial to receive all the stations; a wideband aerial is sometimes mistakenly (or deliberately by some aerial erectors) called a digital aerial.

It could be that the TV tuner is not getting a strong enough signal at present (digital transmissions are not very powerful at present) and an aerial booster and a retune may help, especially with some ITV channels.

You are absolutely right. I was using common usage of the word 'digital' to avoid confusion :-)

I do not have a free view box, would it be better to purchase this instead of an aerial booster?
