Yeah, I can vouch for the crappiness of the tuner. :)
I am returning it and will try to get my hand on one of those Sonys. I'm mail ordering a XDR-F1HD, but it looks like Sony has discontinued it. The first place I ordered from claimed to have it, then - surprise - discovered it wasn't in stock. Hopefully the 2nd place I ordered from actually has one.
It's not exactly a great sign for HD radio that Sony has apparently decided to get out of the HD radio business, especially since looking at the reviews, the XDR-F1HD was one of the best, if not the best, consumer-grade HD radio receiver out there.
: Must be a crappy tuner and why it was so cheap.
: I have a Sony tuner at my house on the southwest side of Madison. I can get all the stations in Madison with no problems with a simple dipole antenna.
