I'm not sure we ever saw test results for this new Zoran demod, but 110
total us of equalizer range would put it on the par with LG 5th gen and
Samsung Gemini. It's not in the CRC list of tested ATSC demods, though.
Doesn't say which tuner it uses, although there are a few good
candidates out there (e.g. Microtune, Xceive).

Once again, it looks like these good new-generation demods are finding
their way in integrated TV sets only, not yet in STBs or in recording
devices. I like the emphasis placed on indoor reception.
