The smallest, simplest. cutiest you can get is the Cinergy Hybrid, for both DTT and normal TV. Wonderful matching software by ElGato for the Mac, too.

The antenna is too small, i might not have a good signal.

Forget the included antenna altogether: no one of those devices is capable of working without a good antenna system. A makeshift antenna not sufficient for a TV set does not provide a signal sufficient to feed a digital card.

Of course unless you are located a few meters from the TV transmitter
