I'm planning on getting a pcHDTV-5500 to use with Mythtv. The problem is that in my building I don't get any cell phone reception, but just outside the door I get full service. Since the building blocks cell phone signal, will it also block OTA HDTV signals? I looked on antennaweb and I should be able to get the signals, provided the building allows. Also, I guess this card will allow me to view any unencrypted OTA signal, but not encrypted, right? Does antenna web tell whether channels are encrypted or not?

OTA ATSC channels aren't encrypted in any way. I think you have them confused with encrypted QAM channels from the cable company.
