Final, quick question, if my cable length from antenna to the desktop more than say 50 or 60 ft, do I need an amp or a preamp of any type?

Thanks much.
Use the Hauppauge signal monitor app to tell you the SNR of a signal to see if any changes made reception better. The SNR should be at least 16 dB; the higher, the better.

The Uncorrectable Errors should be zero.
