Default shielding for TV card

Mornin' all!

I get quite a lot of interference on my TV card, nd I was wondering if you lot had any bright ideas about how I could make some sort of shielding for it... any ideas?

I don't think you'd be getting interference from your computer at all on the tuner card, it's more than likely your antenna that is picking it up. Hopefully you have a good distance away from any other electrical device, ie your computer, and I have noticed that my wireless card effects another tv in my house. So if you're using a wireless card, might want to try and disable it, see if signal improves.

I only get the interference on the TV card. I can plug the same aerial cable into my TV and it'll get much better reception (it's never that great, as I'm in North Cornwall). A friend is going to give me some of those magnetic doodahs that you put around cables, so hopefully that'll help!
