    That's the beauty of a DVR/Tivo like I use at times. Miss the ID, you just rewind. My Tivo does a pretty good job with tropo, especially with digital I notice very little difference in it and the Insignia. But where the Insignia really shines is analog. Although the Tivo does a good job with ATV tropo, it just isnt as sensitive as the Insignia. Also the Tivo is incapable of doing Es. What a shame.

          Mike, I've been thinking about adding a Tivo for DX for a few years. What brand, etc do you use?

          We have one from Dish Network, but I've never tried it for DX.

            OK Danny just to clarify, Tivo is the brand name. It's a DVR just like Dish or Directv would have, but is made for cable only...no satellite tuners. Tivo is generally accepted as the cadillac of DVRs. As I stated back when I first came here, the Tivo I had was purchased because I had cable TV...before I even knew about DXing. As I later came to find out, it was pretty good for tropo too. The model I have is the TivoHD which was replaced last year with the Tivo Premier. From all I've read, the Premier's OTA tuner isnt as sensitive as that of the TivoHD. Now enough about Tivo. I hear Dish Network DVRs had good OTA tuners. If yours is active, I would definately give it a try. It can be a wonderful tool.

              Mike, I suppose with the limited use of OTA analog TV in the US, *good* analog tuners are no longer needed by TV viewers. I sure wish they hadn't replaced your model. Thank you for the information.

                Christopher, if you look closely, you can see that the XEW 60th anniversary logo is being covered by the XEPM ID.

                  This won't be an easy trick, but if you can get ahold of an old Teknika TVC-22 tuner, Radio Shack tuner, or a similar tuner (that looks like a cable/converter box) that has a "manual fine tuning" feature, it'll make an old analog TV much better. I wish I knew the model # of the R Shack model---I think I threw mine away!

                  If you only care about lowband, then an old cable box might do the trick as well, as long as you don't tune above ch 13.

                  Sorry, I need *my* Teknika.....I don't even see them on eBay anymore.

                  I wish I could have the D100 tuner now, but my funds are for more serious matters.

                    Is there any standalone DVR that will simply take NTSC A/V feeds from another device and not freak into "blue screen" mode if the video isn't "perfect" ? Blank VHS tapes are becoming scarcer these days. I wished I'd gotten one of those Teknikas back when they were the rage.

                      Christopher and Pat, my goal is to use fewer VHS tapes.
