I was very curious (and I'm sure that others are as well) how the picture quality is (as compared to the mediocre at best PQ on the original models)? ......
and is there a real difference in sensitivity (the original models did very well in this area to begin with!)?

(BTW - The original thread seems to have no comparisons or tests of this new unit)

Also - Have there been any retail (in store) sightings of this new unit?

Came today.
F/W - F106

No better or worse than any other CECB I've had on reception ability at my location.

Haven't tested timers yet, but TVGOS is working in my area (confirmed from stations Engineer), so I don't expect any issues on that score.

Any idea what chipset it uses, or what they are basing their claim of better fringe reception on?
