I have a Fusion HDTV Lite card, an HDHomeRun and a Hauppauge HD-PVR in
my setup. The Fusion card pulls in the signals just as well as the
HDHomeRun, so I don't know if you've got a defect or what. I did lower
the threshold for digital signals in MythTV to 40% and everything still
comes in crystal clear. I live in a hilly area about 35 miles away from
the antenna sources and am using a Winegard SS with amplifier, then
multiple splitters to deliver signal all over my house.
