So, I assume you are suggesting not order amp/booster with the antenna, i probably don't need it right with 50-60ft of cable length, right?

Yes, try it without an amp first. OTAFAN is correct, you shouldn't need a preamp because your signals are strong enough to cause overload if you add the antenna gain and preamp gain to the Noise Margin figures in your TVFool report.

I got curious about the Hauppauge tuner so I ordered a 955Q. The previous Hauppauge USB stick didn't work very well for me in 2013, but this time the installation was OK.

If you can not measure it, you can not improve it.
