Funny coming from someone with the handle ChannelMaster!

Would the 91XG be the best choice for all the American feeds, with the obvious exception of ABC. It would perform better then the 4228?

Where to buy Channel master 7778

Does anyone know where I can purchase a CM 7778 or 7777 in the Montreal area. Raybel and Montcalm carry on Wineguard.

Or would I be ok with a Wineguard AP 2870 pr AP 8700?
