I have a Samsung TV and the tuner in it is definitely better at picking 
up weak signals than the HDHR. I've swapped cables to prove this. I 
can't quantify how much better but it is noticeable. (Don't get me 
wrong, I still like my HDHR.)

Here in southeastern Virginia we have both UHF and VHF OTA signals.
