Have a look on the DRAKE ESR800xt which offers audio and video 
thresholdextension. Just reducing the IF bandwidth is the chaepest way to 
work on weak signals, but this method does not lower a demodulator 
thresholdlevel. It simply reduces picture resolution. A better way is to 
extend the threshold by using a PLL-circuit. It retains the a the required 
IF bandwidth and so the picture resolution.
