Need help choosing a TV Tuner card - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Any VHF/UHF antenna will work. Even old rabbit ears antennas can pick up a HD ATSC signal. The kind of antenna you need is mainly determined by how far you are from the transmitter and local geography. If you are far from the transmitter you may need a directional outdoor antenna to pick up the signal.

Here is a link to a cheap flexible antenna that works great. I get all the local stations with it and it cost nothing to make except maybe a can of adhesive spray.

I have a Mohu leaf, what's the cheapest tuner for it? (I don't have subscription to any other services)

The Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1250 is an inexpensive internal ATSC single tuner. If you want an external USB tuner look into the Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-950Q

Mohu Leaf is just an antenna... the internal 1250 works perfectly with the Leaf. I own both

I echo the sentiments about the Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2250. In addition to what everyone else has said, it has a low profile plate included for both the main board and the auxiliary plate, making it ideal for inclusion in several SFF HTPC cases.
