I set this up on an old TV with a freeview scart tuner plugged in. It was postioned on a bedroom wall but still facing through a couple of rooms towards the main transmission ariel. It seems to work fine with all the freeviw channels looking good. I guess the internal amplifier helps to generate a healthy signal for the tuner. I am based in west london so not sure what it would be like anywhere else in the country and further away from your local TV antenna.
