Although the R-S Accurian HTS-6000 reportedly uses the Thomson DTF8600 tuner 
module, I have yet to see anyone report what ATSC Decoder chip is used.
It might be the RECTANGULAR chip in the far left of this picture, which would 
mean it is apparently not one of the SQUARE chips found on other manufacturer's 
Click on the Datasheet for a better picture.
So is anyone brave enough to open it up and take a look???
Maybe you'll get lucky and be able to see the chip through a hole in the tin

Thanks, Tom.

I rather obsessed over whether my ghosts tended to
be leading or lagging, before hoping for good ATSC
reception, specifically because I am not at all convinced
that the Accurian is anything more than a decent 3rd

hate anyone to assume it was a 4th or 5th gen product
that somehow went unnoticed.
