Thanks. The next time I make a similar mistake, I will use your advice. For most of my CECB's, I am not deleting anything remotely of interest. I do not want to go through the hell of the scanning I did after the transition. Only two of my tv's got all of the stations scanned in with no problem (their antenna position and location in my residence facilitated the easy scanning). The other tv's and antennas were another story. Let's just say I went through alot of choreography and body movement to get most of the stations.
Even though my antenna for the Zinwell was not ideally situated, I was amazed at its ability to recognize most of the stations that were available. It acted as though any signal that had any amount of strength would be acceptable to it. The Channel Master further into my residence was another story (did NOT perform miracles). I was very satisfied with the Zinwell 950-A's ability in this respect. It missed two major channels, but I expected that due to those channel's problems.
Are you saying that the tuner in the 950-A is better than that of the 970-A? I think I read that it is made of a different material (silicon) and made by a different company.
Its manual is much more complete than that of the Channel Master. The print size is very small, but I'd rather have the text size in the manual be small while the text size on the screen being of acceptable size than the reverse, which is the case with the Channel Master - the text size in its manual is large while the text size on the screen is very small!!
