I bought a CM7000 for a backup to my DTVPal. It has a 30 day return warranty, so I temporarily replaced my DTVPal with the 7000 for a month to make sure it works consistently. It was a one-to-one replacement, same cables, antenna, location, everything. I have discovered a very strange thing: All of my stations are tuning in much, much better with the CM than they did with the DTVPal. I mean, stations that previously were in the low 60's reception are now coming in at 75 or 80 or above. Is it possible that the CM has better tuners? I was wondering if anybody else who has bought a backup had run into this. I'm going to keep the CM as my primary now and put the Pal in the box, after I watch the few last shows on it. I was actually shocked, because I thought they were the exact same unit with a different name.
