Be sure you have a powerful PC in which to install one, and a video card that will support the HDTV tuner card.

Read the hardware requirements as minimums and try to double them.

I have found the MyHD card to be fussy with the DTV signal. Sometimes it pixelates when no other receiver is affected.

I have really had good luck with my Fusion HDTV 5 Lite PCI card.

I've seen the same thing with low signal strength stations, but I like the fact that MyHD does it's own mpeg-2 decoding. This greatly reduces the hardware requirements for the PC. It can also do QAM which is a real plus.

I highly recommend the MyHD-130 card. Very little CPU usage while recording and playing back video. Two RF inputs for a combination of Cable QAM tuning and OTA tuning.

I love mine and would definately purchase it again.
