I will take this in consideration.

I don't have a broadcast antenna on sight so I guess it is better to
exclude this product.

That is another thing to keep in mind.

Thank you both for the suggestions.

As I said on my original post, my priority is to get at least the
analog signal so I'll start to search around based on those
suggestions. If by any chance someone has any suggestion for cards that
support the digital signal, I'll be glad to hear them. :-)

Thank you again for the suggestion.
