Thanks, but I already have an op amp in the mix.   Even with the increased 
signal I can't get it to work properly.  I can only give it one more bump in 
signal and I'll try it, but I'll effectively remove all other outlets in the 
home making it pointless.

The worst part is even with significantly less signal the card behaves 
exactly the same.

I'll see if I can't find a windows system to test the card.

Thanks again,
