I don't have HD, but have found my Belkin N card greatly extends the 
range. I don't normally watch TV via wireless, but I recently needed to 
set up a wireless link for a webcam in a separate building. I used Myth 
Frontend as a "test" for ability to stream video. I was able to watch 
recordings in SD at a distance of about 60 metres through two brick walls.
