    hdtv tuner card with rca antenna

    i was just wondering what you guys thought about this combination. this antenna, which, by the looks of it, can mount anywhere(trunk, rear deck, etc) without being powered by a 120v or 12v source.

    they have this at walmart, and the pics on the box have the antenna mounted inside the house, which means that you could possibly mount it inside the car. but i had the thought of pairing it with this card

    it's kinda iffy if it's powered by a coax cable. i don't know if a pci card can power this. any more specs?

    I agree, anything that is in a triangle box is tops.
    and if the product is ****, well you still have your triangle box
