Years ago when HDTV STBs were available for HDTV-Ready tvs (no internal ATSC tuners), LG probably made the best ATSC tuners. I used one on my Sony CRT and it worked perfectly. So when we bought our first flat panel, we went with LG and it too has been flawless for OTA tv. That being said, I think most newer tv's today, if you purchase a major mfr (LG, Sony, Panasonic, Samsung, Toshiba), all have good ATSC tuners so the tv will not be the issue, it's the antenna. The best reception possible is outside, rooftop, at least 30' from ground level, possibly with a rotor. The antenna type will be determined on what your local towers are broadcasting, what you want to pick up, and their geographic coordinates to you. TVFool will give that information and from that you can determine the best type of antenna for you. Terrain is also an issue; hills, buildings, trees (with or without leaves), etc. There are indoor solutions as well but they are more problematic than an outdoor, rooftop, antenna.
