This is my first foray in to HD on this box other than playing DVD's or
DivX/MPEG-4 HD video.

The FE's have AMD64 3000+'s, 512MB RAM, local IDE drive, nVidia GeForce
6200.  The machines have always been rather bored.  Even when I was
pushing HD during my tests last night, the machines were still bored...

I guess I'll hit up RadioShack or something for a decent powered antenna
vs the tiny thing I picked up at HomeDepot and give it another shot this
