bdb and Lee, Thanks for your inputs. I guess you are right about the cards not having good reception.... are there any satellite HD channels that can be received by using some equipment in conjunction with this card. I don't want to buy a satellite receiver, since I already have this card. Once one of the providers like AT&T come up with HD channels thru regular cable, I won't have a problem. How far are we from this ? Lee, I already tried the silver sensor antenna.
