Had enough of the ViewTV AT-163

This STB has been the bane of my existence for years and I'm done with it. Before I explain my problem, here's my setup:


The AirTV gets much better performance than the AT-163. For one, most of the channels get anywhere from little bits on the screen, to complete messes on the AT-163. On the AirTV, every single channel I get is completely flawless except for when there's *really* bad weather (I'm talking 35 mph winds; yeah its tuners are that good). I can only assume that the AirTV has top-of-the-line tuners, and that says a lot about the AT-163. From what I've heard, the AT-163 is (supposed to be) a very good STB. I would like to get the AT-163 replaced with something that has tuners comparable to the AirTV's amazing tuners. Can anyone recommend one?

Try the AT by itself without the splitter and the AirTv connected and see if the AT performs better. Splitters don't always work that great with OTA.

I've had a Tablo unit for a couple of years now, and it works perfectly. It is connected to a splitter with no ill effects.
Thanks for the suggestion. I've heard good things about Tablo, but I need a STB that can go out to HDMI and/or Component for my slingbox.
