I hadn't heard of Argus TV. Nice to know that there's another option out there. I'm assuming it only works on copy freely stations if using cablecard. Does it even support cablecard?

Here in Los Alamos, the signal strength went down about 10 points compared to what was on 51 but the signal quality went up a little bit on average. It seems fine for viewing at the moment.
