EyeTV Diversity comes with two antennas/aerials.
Small “portable” aerials are suitable for receiving DTT (DVB-T, TNT, Freeview) signals in many European countries.
EyeTV Diversity has two tuners, that can be used separately (to receive two separate channels), or in Diversity mode, to both receive the same channel, but with extra amplification of the signal.
Thus, two small aerials are included in the package for use with both modes.
Even if you live in an area with strong DTT reception, EyeTV Diversity is an attractive choice. In Dual-Tuner mode, EyeTV Diversity becomes two conventional DTT receivers in one. It’s the only EyeTV product that enables you to watch two live TV channels Picture-in-Picture, or watch one show while you record another.
In Diversity mode, the two integrated tuners are set to the same frequency. EyeTV Diversity contains a Digital Signal Processor (DSP), which uses information from both tuners to generate the best signal possible.
The result of this Antenna Diversity (AD) and multi-tuner technology is superb reception deep indoors, in weak DTT coverage areas, and at high speeds. In tests, the technology provided good reception in 95% of locations within the home (compared with 67% for conventional receivers), and a 50% improvement in the quality of the television signal.
EyeTV Diversity is ideal for travelers. The ultra-compact device and portable antennas pack easily with a MacBook, and mobile reception is possible at speeds up to 160 km/h provided there is uninterrupted DTT coverage en route.
Single Antenna Mode
There also is a Single Antenna mode, which only uses one tuner.
EyeTV Diversity might not work with DTT in some locations. Coverage will always be unique to the type and strength of DTT signals in each area.
You may need to use a larger aerial, either table-top or roof-top, to properly receive some signals – this depends on your particular situation.
