My gut is still telling me you're working with lousy TV tuners. Before doing anything drastic buy or borrow a real tv or d2a converter box, point exactly at 18 PBS, and adjust your Kitz amp back to the max.
Your Kitz amp noise level is 0.5 when at max. As you lower the gain, you are raising the noise level. If you talk to Mr. Kitz on the phone he advises to avoid using the gain control if possible.
I know you mentioned overload before. But try it again with a different tuner.
Don't give up.
By the way, your TV Fool report says it is for your postal code - not your exact address. I wonder if it might be helpful to re-do your TV Fool report using your exact address. Don't worry, your exact address is not shown on the report that we all view.
