I am about to buy a new Receiver off ebay and I am trying to figure out which one is the best. Anyone an expert on this stuff?

I know a couple of years ago when I first got mine the Sony had double processors so the menuing was about double the speed.

Anyone have any suggestions or good websites to use?

I've got the Samsung SIR-T160 and it's great. It does DTV and OTA (Over the Air) broadcast. If you don't have DTV And don't plan to, get the T165.

If you wait just a little while longer, you can get an HDTV Tivo. Four tuners (2 for Off-the-air, 2 for Satellite - any two in any combination can be recording concurrently).

Should be cool.

All this for only US$1000.00 !

Otherwise www.abtelectronic.com usually have a couple on special (red tag / return / recon) and they are factory warranty.

----->IMHO<----, stay away from the RCA DTC100 - original technology, old, slow, crummy codec, RGB out only (need an "converter" for component), runs hot ... a decent box in its day, but you can do much better these days for just a little more money.

Good Luck
