Could I have a bad tuner card?
Yes

Is there anything obviously silly with my configuration?
Not that I can tell

I did have some success with a smaller antenna on a mast, so I was hoping that a larger one would be sufficient in the attic. We have shingles on plywood construction, single storey.
Can you try a temporary setup outside with the 7697? If it does well outside, it means that your tuner isn't very sensitive or the attic attenuation of signals is more than average.

Have you tried different locations in the attic?

Do you have any aluminum foil radiant heat barrier, like TechShield, in the attic?

I'm trying to get an in-attic installation working, and so far it's not great.
What channels are you getting, by real channel number, and which ones do you want?
