So I have a really old ATI ATSC/Analog tuner card in my computer.
It came with a Zenith Silver Sensor clone which I ducttaped to the roof of my apartment (I ducttaped a plastic tub down over top of it to keep the rain off since it's not an out door antenna).
I have it pointed exactly at Mount Seymour which is where 3 DTV broadcasters for Vancouver are. Unfortunately there's a building right smack in the way, so I wasn't surprised when I could only get one channel (CBC) with dropouts once every few seconds.
But I borrowed an LCD TV from work with a built in ATSC tuner and hey presto three channels as clear as a bell.
So it looks like I need a better TV card and here comes my question.
Stampeders' FAQ says "ATSC tuners now use Generation VI chipsets. Avoid buying anything older than Generation IV."
So which are the good ones with the good chipsets?
Thanks Golf that's exactly what I wanted to know. I'll get one tomorrow.
Sorry to repeat what's already in the sticky conversation. I was looking for this info in the OTA forum and I couldn't find it so I posted this there and it was moved here.
