Wow. This was even more impressive. Previously, with the antenna in the 
fireplace, the Accurian could only receive solid maybe half of the stations 
that the LG and Philips could receive. Instead now, all of the local stations 
come in solid, as does one of the Balt stations (WJZ-DT, which is at 1 MW UHF). 
Two more Baltimore stations come in, but not solidly.
I had not expected a big improvement from a 3rd gen box, since I expected the 
two antennas to increase ghost energy too. But instead, dramatic improvement.
The local stations are between 12 and 20 miles distant, as the crow flies, and 
Baltimore is 46.6 miles away.
It’s the same Hotmail®. If by “same” you mean up to 70% faster.
