       I'm also starting to think that some numbers are also
meaningless when using the same card, because I've found no
relationship among signal strenght reported by femon or tzap and the
quality of visualization (i.e.  I can watch perfectly some channels
with low signal, and can't watch some other with higher signal values)

       Anyway, as you said, the interesting point is that the TVE mux
seems to be a problematic one doesn't matter wich location/card (only
being important using the native windows driver or the linux one in my
case). I don't know if this can give us any clue to start doing some
research (once some days ago I was convinced that Higher frequencies
where causing reception problems but, again, today I've found that it
doesn't matter: I can watch channels transmitted at higher

       Just to inform you: in my case, SPURCHECK doesn't make any
differnce also.
