Image quality isn't related in any way to the TV card. All the card does is send the MPEG transport stream to the PC for decoding.

I thought this cards decode the compressed HD signal and save up some of my CPU raw power???
If that is the case Im just gonna go for USB HDTV terrestrial as they can be heavy cpu users.

cheers,

No, digital cards have never done any decoding. This is all done by your PC and GFX card.
