Jeez, Frank, you managed to put a negative spin on this.

Certinly, "clever" applies. But whether the DSP is any more
complex than 2nd generation receivers is questionable. From
what Lynx described, it seems not. I'm assuming these two
designs are somewhat similar. The Lynx receiver was not
priced any higher than previous receivers, nor did it need
any more equalizer taps.

A receiver that manages to achieve performance better than
NTSC, with the full 3.3 b/s/Hz, just can't be described
with an "at least."

And I don't rule out more improvements. Although I don't know
even in general terms what the LG design is.
