A new tuner dramatically helped

I got a Digital to analog converter years ago when the switch was first made. I couldn't get the local CBS affiliate at all even though its transmitter was close to the NBC, ABC, and PBS transmitters and their power output was roughly the same. I figured I just needed a better antenna. But then I bought a Channel Master DVR for its ability to record OTA programs and was amazed that not only could I now get the CBS affiliate but a bunch of other stations that I couldn't before! I didn't change a thing other than the tuner.
I sure am glad I didn't install a better antenna.

I would gladly spring for one, if I could be certain that it would perform better than the tuner in my Sony.
Unfortunately, they don't publish specs like they do w/ AM-FM tuners.
