[mythtv-users] Best card to use - especially signal sensitivity

I am looking for user knowledge / experience.

I have been trying an old Hauppauge DVB-T card, and while it works fine, it 
doesn't seem to have the best signal sensitivity with respect to the set-top 
boxes that I have, they all perform well, with no dropouts either video or 
audio, but when I am watching the same program on the PC card I get dropouts, 
I am assuming that this is due to the hardware and not the software that is 
driving it ???

If this is so, can someone suggest a replacement for use in the UK, either PCI 
card or USB-2.

I have been looking at hauppauge's newest offering, but I have been unable to 
find out if it's a better performer, signal wise, when compared to others. 
Hopefully the newer offerings are better at lower signal strengths.

Does any user have any info that I can make some comparisons with ??

Any help or URL's
