WinTV-HVR-1800 antenna connection

I have the OTA antenna, and on the HDTV,I can receive 20 analog and 8 digital channel,
I just get WinTV-HVR-1800 card, it have one input for analog and one input for digital.
how do I connect my antenna output to the card for both analog and digital signal??
do I need to use a splitter to divide the input line into two to connect to the card inputs
thanks.

That's one way to do it. The other way is to have two antennas, one for analog, and one for digital. This could be handy in an area where all of the analog are VHF channels (2..13), and the digitals are mostly all UHF channels (14..70).

Two antennas lets you aim them independently, for stronger signals.

But most people just install the 1:2 splitter, with a single antenna.

Cheers

thanks,
and I am setup the GBPVR, and use the Schedules Direct (Canada and US) trial for EPG, but so far I have no luck to watch the TV from GBPVR, it keep say that I have no channels, but WinTV7 is nice and easy to setup, what might be the problem.
thanks.
