Interesting. perhaps I'll try the 1250 though I am looking for an external one to use with our laptop for testing in different locations. Thx for the input.I have/had 4 HVR-1600 and the ATSC tuners in them are all crap. I mean the worst ATSC tuner cards among my half dozen other ones.
HVR-1250 is king. It is actually better than my 950Qs (at my location anyways)
1600 is just ridiculously bad at my place for some reasons. I don't think 4/4 bad is a fluke.
