I'm sure Mark Schubin would have a meaningful response
to this. What bothers me is that the dealer in Scarsdale,
or so it says in his port, could receive 21 channels on
the real genuwyne LG 5th gen receiver with the special
sauce. I would have expected that you should manage
something similar, no? That's why Mark might be a more
exact comparison, in Manhattan, with the LG receiver.

I have the sneaky suspicion these third party vendors
are trying to get by with single conversion tuners.
