I'm considering WinTV-HVR-1950. Any comments?
"The new S5H1411 boasts a higher reception success rate than other devices
in multi-path environments where signal interference is high, such as
densely populated urban areas; dynamic environments with serious signal
distortion among many moving vehicles; environments with major signal phase
errors because of cable retransmission and remote areas where reception is
Well, at least they have their heart in the right place :) I have never
been able to find real lab test results for ATSC reception performance.
