Hi Bob,

I think I'm going to go for that Nov-T 500 card and see where I get to.
Probably go for satellite grade cable too replacing the already in place

It's good to know that it might be the card after all.

Kind regards,

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
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.
