I would definitely use the Silicon Dust Extend tuner, given that it has hardware transcoding to H264 on board. If you need to buy a tuner anyway that is. Its just one less step in the chain to...

I had no clue the ATI Digital Cable Tuner (the original Cablecard tuner) also had an ATSC tuner in it. I got that bad boy set up yesterday to give me two ways to pull in OTA.

I set my Windows HTPC to display 0-255 normally, but set FFDshow to play video in the 16-235 space.

On my LibreELEC box I just choose 16-235 since I never do any web browsing or whatever on it.
