I was looking forward to buy this freeview reciever but can someone recommend me a high gain internal antenna.As i dont have a facility to connect this to the one outside an internal antenna is the only option.

Also wondering if this comes with a high gain antenna or should it be purchased them seperate..If i go for the intenal antenna how much will that effect the picture quality.

Quick Installation Guide
* The WinTV-NOVA-T does not support DAB radio.
* For Digital Terrestrial reception, a high gain aerial is recommended.

The WinTV-NOVA uses a rooftop aerial in the same way that most people currently receive their analogue television programmes. Some viewers will need to replace their aerials to receive digital transmissions if the installation is old or in poor condition. Digital Terrestrial coverage is improving all the time as digital terrestrial television transmitters are continuously being brought on line. However it may take some time for coverage to reach particular areas of the country.
