I see a UHF on top (Yagi) and a VHF below.
They should work, but I don't know how to combine the two signals or if it would be worth the effort.

Thanks for the offer.

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

Congratulations!
You have successfully deciphered the mystic that is OTA antenna selection and installation!

I have been using TitanTv for OTA guide info for 15 years; works for me.

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