For my part, I want it good, then fast.
Marginal signals are all you'll ever get with an indoor antenna ;)

There's plenty of stuff we can do to make it fast.  We haven't even
begun to scratch the surface.  We only need to carry the 8 MS/s
through the first couple of blocks, then we'll be running at the 10.76
symbol rate.
