Sorry about ur new TV experience. Unfortunately I only have experienced. Emerson;toshiba ; old jvc ; and generic analog digital receiver. Best performance is old jvc (not hd). Then new (hd) toshiba. The Emerson was fairly equal to generic converter box. With one great exemption converter has a great guide.i believe up to 6 hrs into future programming.we have vizio smart Tvs at work I put antenna on one. And it has no guide for ota TV.not sure about the tuner sensitivity I got nothing to comare it to at that location.

Unfortunately, TV mfrs, don't publish specs on their tuners, like audio mfrs, used to.

I'm not sure how my Bravia would stack up against any of the others out there, but I do receive dozens of channels from 40 and 47 miles out and more. It is pretty close to 5yrs old and has never been used for anything but OTA.

Samsung Had more intergraded recevers. Or somthing like that. I got a samsung and it is a little better than the generic one I replaced.<<

I recently bought a Samsung Smart TV, and I'm not happy with the built-in OTA tuner. Does anyone have any recommendations either for technology to supplement the Samsung or a new TV?

Thank you!
Bought a new 32 inch LG a few months ago. Tuner is pretty good for OTA reception. Probably on par with my five year old Sony 32 inch in terms of sensitivity and ability to handle multipath.
