Product Description

Colour Name: White

The DTA225 aerial from August, the portable Freeview specialists, is an amplified aerial designed specifically for digital reception. With a standard coaxial connection, it can be easily used with almost any portable or living room television set.

With a USB powered amplifier, it is ideal for USB Freeview Tuners, like the August DVB-T202, as you can simply plug it into a spare USB port to benefit from amplified reception without having to find a plug socket. This also makes it great for portable TVs and multimedia players with USB ports giving you optimal reception when you are on the go.

Designed with the August DTV700B portable TV in mind, it also benefits from coaxial power capability; the latest TVs with powered aerial sockets can activate the integrated signal booster using just the standard antenna cable.

For bedroom, kitchen and living room sets, the August UMC500 (sold separately) USB plug adaptor can be used when a USB port is not available.

Capable of receiving frequencies of UHF 470-860MHz it is ideal for both DVB-T and DAB broadcasting.

Whether you are looking for an aerial for your bedroom, kitchen, caravan, boat or car, the DTA225B will greatly improve your reception in almost any circumstance.

Please Note: Freeview reception is dependent upon environmental factors, we cannot guarantee reception in all conditions. We do offer a 30 day money back guarantee on all new items in order for you to test the suitability in your area.

New product supplied retail packaged with 12 month warranty.

Like others, I bought the freeview dongle for my net book but the aerial wasn't strong enough despite living in Cornwall which was one of the first switchover areas a few years ago. So I upgraded and ordered this little gem with the security of knowing I could return it if I still couldn't get adequate signal. It arrived within a few days and after loading the channels initially through a roof top aerial, plugged in the booster - ta dah! perfect reception and over 75 freeview channels to choose from. I spend a lot of the summer roaming in my campervan and didn't want a huge aerial sticking out of my roof so this is absolutely perfect - discreet and space efficient as it's tiny. Depending on where I park, signal can still be an issue but no worse than mobile phone coverage in Cornwall and generally after a little giggery pokery I can get at least some of the channels even in the remotest areas. For anyone looking for a space saving solution - I absolutely recommend this gadget.

I was looking for a Freeview aerial that I could use to get a better reception on my USB tuner stick. As I'd bought an August tuner, i thought that going for one of their aerials would make sense. Looking through their selection, I found this one without any reviews, it seems like its the newest one they've released and as its small in size, amplified and has a monitor clip, I decided to take my chances and place an order.

My package arrived swiftly, as ever through Amazon, and on opening the box I found an instruction manual (still unread), and 4 nicely wrapped parts, the aerial, suction mount (haven't used it), the amplifier and the clip mount. Unwrapping the clip mount, aerial and amplifier, I pieced it all together (seconds work) and plugged it into my Laptop, after a rescan for channels I found I could now view 70+ and the ones that were a bit juddery before now played smoothly without that annoying Freeview stutter. The clip works well to secure it to my laptops monitor but my favourite part to this aerial is the fact that the amplifier is a separate unit. This means that it can be used with other aerials, I tried it with my Bravia and found that the USB port on the back would power it allowing me to amplify my rooftop aerial. Genius!

I can thoroughly recommend this aerial, it does its job and receives signal nicely...

not too bad, must say the size is absolutely shockingly small and therefore - now i know- dont expect much. TV loaded all the channels but strength is poor (we do live fairly on the hill, and not in any tower block crammed area) therefore no channels would play properly.
Shame.

Bought after I bought the August USB TV tuner stick. This is an improvement as couldn't get hardly anything with the aerial that came with the USB tuner and for this price makes it a working package. It's only a very small aerial so suprising that it does work really but also as someone else pointed out you actually get a USB powered aerial amp separate to the mini aerial so if you are even just after a USB TV amp then it's good value. As with any digital TV signal though unless you have decent reception then you will have problems - if in a weak area then you can still expect to have reception problems even with this. You'll find that DAB radio works better with this, TV as above will depend on the area

Those many reviews suggesting 'all portable TV aerial are similar (and inferior to fixed high gain aerials)' - are simply not true. Having returned a non-boosted 'high gain' aerial which did not work in my area, this aerial immediately gave a signal as good as my fixed household aerial.

It's so tiny, too. Ideal for my hand-held mini LCD TV.

For portability, just make sure your mini TV has a USB power source for the DTA225W. Makes for slightly complicated wiring/plug-ins, but it works superbly.

Use this on a very old laptop when touring in my caravan and it works well when plugged into the caravan aerial. I tour a lot in Scotland where reception can be patchy but I can generally receive the main channels and lots of radio stations. Have also used it in Yorkshire where it picked up 107 stations which is more than I get from my high gain aerial at home! Couldn't recommend the aerial supplied as it doesn't seem to be very effective but otherwise brilliant./

I expect it would work for some in a different area. Didn't work very well for me. But that doesn't mean its no good.
