I am "Over the Air Only" and I own a Sanyo HDTV and a Phillips 160 GB HDD DVD recorder.
The Phillips picks up all local digital signals no problem. The Sanyo TV has reception problems with some channels and I end up not watching in HD. So I have come to the conclusion that all tuners are not created equal.
I have done a lot of research online and looked at sets in stores.
All things being equal in the OTA reception category, I would pick the Panasonic 50" px80u. The price range, size, etc seems to fit my needs, but I read in the px80u thread that the reception capabilities are suspect.
OTA reception is important enough of a feature that I would even sacrifice some PQ for excellent reception.
My request is that if any of you notice that your set is particularly good or bad at OTA reception, could you comment.
