VIP622 handling of OTA-HD reflections?
How does the VIP622 (or any model) of OTA-HD receiver deal with signal reflections? Does it incorporate an error compensation circuit or a PLL?

I have a 622 and live about 3 miles from the TV towers. I bought the top line Wineguard HD antenna. I was losing the signal all the time (I was getting to strong of a signal). Then I connected a small bowtie antenna and got better reception. One of my problems I live in the woods so the signal bounces around. With analog I got a lot of double images. With digital it's a totally different. I tried the tuner on my Sony verses the 622 and they both do a great job, in my opinion. I didn't answer your question but thought I'd tell you my experience.

The 622 and the 211 do not handle multi-path very well at all.Hopper 2000, Hopper w/Sling, 5 Joeys, HIC, DPP44

I'm not sure why only one (CBS) VHF station would have refection issues when the others don't. I have a roof antenna that I haven't mounted yet due to severe cold and snow. Other than that we've been really pleased with the recent ($199) VIP622 receiver upgrade. We use it in our basement theater on a 106" 16:9 screen with a Panasonic AX100U pj.
I was disappointed to read here that the hdmi output only supports 2 channel audio, seems like too nice a receiver to scrimp on the hdmi decoder chip though.
