[mythtv-users] Radio tuner cards?

My garage is under my computer room.  I'm usually listening to AM talk radio 
on the way home from work.  When I drive up the driveway and into the garage, 
the AM signal gets obliterated by a *LOT* of noise.  Hopefully my neighbors 
don't try to listen to AM radio at home. ;-)  I wonder if the noise is coming 
from the fans or the power supplies or what.   The computer room contains 8 
computers ranging from an AMD 5x86-133 to an Athlon XP 2100+ (my myth box).
