I have the WinFast DTV 1000 T pci and I am running a pair of rabbit
ears antenna with ~7 meters of 75 Ohm coaxial cable into my desktop as
the rabbit ears are in another room on top my wardrobe, and using Me
TV program.  As to what my signal is I am not sure as a signal meter
was not been added till 0.6.X of Me TV.
