I've been through something similar but using the Pinnacle Dazzle. Manufacturers mention all 
the bells and whistles available on a card but fail to mention the basic 
requirement of input sensitivity. 

I've ended up by adding the Nova-S-Plus satellite receiver to give me the 
channels not available on freeview. The Hauppauge seems to be more 
sensitive than the Pinnacle PCTV Pro PCI board I tried. I don't know if 
that is matched in dvb-t. The Hauppauge windows software though is 
absolutely dire and crashes randomly. Linux is rock solid.
