Best QAM Tuner?

I have a budget of $100. I need to be able to pick up QAM and ATSC TV. Also NTSC, as there is 1 repeater here that still broadcast in NTSC, and the local cable system (basic service), is analog still. What is the best tuner that I can get for under $100? I have money now, so I want a decent tuner for under $100. Antenna isn't really an option here, according to my TV Fool report: www dot tvfool dot com /?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=29&q=id%3df1f0978977115 e]. I want ATSC capabilities because I might some day move to an area where I can pick up OTA signals, and an NTSC tuner because we still have an analog cable system here for Extended basic service.

Are you sure there is clear QAM available in your area? In many (most?) areas clear QAM seems to have disappeared, thanks to recent FCC rulings.

I believe it's time to Overthrow VerticalScope..
and Bring Back Huddler!


It's a shame that in the end TCU's playoff chances all came down to this . . .

Yes, I can receive it perfectly fine on my livingroom TV, and my desktop with a Hauppage WinTV 2250 card. We actually still have analog service here, and the upstairs TV picks it up fine, (as does my computer and the living room TV).
