First up sorry about the double post; it wasn't showing up in my

I saw from your previous posts that the bt878 chipsets should be
avoided, and never considered Avermedia as an option. Thanks for the
advice, looks like I'm going for the KWorld card :)

The analog reception here isn't perfect but we do get occasional lines
of static on the screen. Upgrading the cable helped that a bit so if
I find a nicely shielded cable Digital shouldn't be a problem.

Sweet! You've been a great help. Thanks!
