Sorry, I don't know the answer to your question, but I was wondering where
you are located physically and how you can tell that there are digital OTA
broadcasts in your area? I live in the Phoenix metro area (Chandler) and
can't seem to find any information on whether or not any of the local TV
stations are broadcasting digital (other than the local PBS affiliate KAET).
In addition, you mention a rooftop antenna for your digital ATSC setup--it
seems from reading I have done on the web that digital TV still broadcasts
in the VHF bands, so a "standard" VHF antenna should work fine?
Related to your original question, it sounds like you can't pinpoint when
this problem started. Has it always been the case that you get static with
Not being a "real" Myth user as of yet, it "feels" to me that your cards are
not getting enough PCI bus bandwidth. You might try swapping the cards in
the slots (as sometimes preference is given to a card based on its slot), or
flashing the BIOS on your motherboard in case a recent BIOS update might
tinker with PCI timing. Those are just guesses on my part.
