Thanks, I was just reading those remotecentral links. Well, we are moving in
about a month, and the new house facest the CN tower (faces east, we are in

I saw that page on the 1600. Seems okay for me as it's only going to be a
tuner card in my use, and the bonus was it's the only one of the HVRs that's

Also wanted to ask about this:
