The only program was on was PBS in HDTV at 10:30am this morning.
The program that was on was hard to compare so will wait for some live sport or show on hdtv.
Both receivers was feed the signal from the same two way splitter.
Using component outut in 1080i the tuners was setup for.
I cant really tell about the LG being more sensitive as all the channels are in strong and WB was on last night but I did not have time to hook it up, I did have time at 1am to hook up the dish 811.
The dish 811 pulled in the WB49 last night.
The signal strength would read max on the Samsung and on the Dish would read between 84 to 89% maybe its the scaling used.
The LG read in the middle of the scale ?
I will wait till there is a low signal on the Samsung to compare how sensitive the tuner is.
If there is a difference the LG does seem a tiny bit sharper and maybe a tiny bit brighter in contrast.
I have found a place that sells factory refurb on the web and bought another Sammy and gotone for my brother. For the price they sell the Samsung is the best value in hdtv tuner at $155.00us.
Comes packaged just like you bought a new one, all the cables manual and remote etc.
Comparing the Dish 811 vs the Lg the dish 811 picture is not as detailed and has slightly less contrast and brightness. But still a good picture quality, one would not be able to tell unless they were side by side to compare.
Opps I had the dish rec hooked up via dvi to hdmi compared to compionent for the LG.
