Default Any way for me to improve my signal strength?

I bought my stiletto so I could use it around the house while I'm re-writing school notes but my weak signal strength won't allow me too. Is there anyway I could improve my signal strength inside my house? The signal in front of my house is horrible too. I've been a subscriber since September 05 but I've never used my radio anywhere but in my car so I've never tested the signal strength inside my house until now.

You could get a home kit or try using WI-FI if you have it.

Uh...not sure what you're expecting, but receiving satellite signal inside a house (without terrestrial repeaters) is usually poor at best.

Your only options are:

1. Get a home dock and install an outdoor antenna. However, you won't be able to walk around the house with this.

2. Do #1 above, and then record the channels you want to listen to. Then you can walk around the house with it.

3. Use wi-fi. The downside is that you won't get all the channels. By the way, you can't activate your Stiletto via wifi.

Where do I get a list of the channels that are available via wi-fi?
