OK, I bit the bullet and backed up my partitions, loaded back vista
ultimate that my laptop came with, only to get the same results... So
I went into the attic... It seems the professionally installed
antenna (or rather tech) used a directv splitter that was already up
there. I replaced it with a 5-2300 splitter, and it all works now.
I am just wondering how the same cable connected to a TV produced
different results when connected to the hdhomerun.. I can only assume
the TV has pretty good gain or something???
