Thanks for the offer.

Curious, with what are you replacing the venerable MyHd with, or have you given up on HTPC all together?

Most likely the answer is yes, you will need an antenna that will receive VHF and UHF signals to get all the stations.

Congratulations!

Best to talk to your neighbors, to see what they are using.
