Is the new Dish dual OTA tuner as sensitive as the TiVo Bolt?

Nope. I know the difference. Samsung still has their OLED research going, and I believe may have announced a future return to the product category. In the long run, getting rid of the filters LG uses for their “white” OLED will result in more efficiency and probably quicker, easier fabrication (fewer components).

Samsung leads in OLED displays for phones.

Rumors of Samsung getting back into the OLED TV business have been around since they stopped making them, I'll believe it when they actually release a new Samsung manufactured OLED TV They haven't been able to get around the LG OLED patents for making large screens and the Non-Organic screens don't seem to scale to larger sizes.

Actually I would love to see Samsung manufacture OLED TVs as it would give LG some competition and maybe bring the prices down. As I'm sure you know Sony and Panasonic OLEDs use LG panels.

The latest rumor is Samsung exploring a combined quantum dot and OLED panel.

2020? 2021? Twelfth of Never?

Hadn't heard that one. 2021 would be about when I need to replace my 900e so crossing my fingers.

Samesung? The folks who recently brought us phones that caught fire, refrigerators that could not keep making ice, and washing machines that exploded, yes they are still working on Oleds but for the forseable future nothing larger than a big phone screen is on the horizon from them.

I think their drop in market share of top tier tvs shows how well they are now doing.
and their QLED designation does look suspiciously like an attempt to look like OLED on the box.

Heh, I have one of those exploding washers. They fixed it with a warning label.

Well, and a few bits of hardware.

Was it a DISH technician who came out and put the label on?

I believe so.

Actually, he did the fiddly bits and we slapped on the labels.

Seems I've read people posting that after the fix the washer leaves things so wet it takes twice as long to dry them. Have you noticed this?

Nope. I wonder if they have another problem.

In the three days that I have used it I gotten excellent results. Of course time will tell if it’s better than the old single usb tuner but so far so good. I’m pretty fringe and get dropouts on occasion but I need to test this over a longer period.
does it get hot

Yes, there is two newer generation dual tuners. Make sure you get the newest. The AirTV Dual-Tuner Adapter and the other is the Newest Model Dish Dual OTA Adapter Tuner. The AirTV Dual is a much better price. When you get a chance you need to read this complete thread about the newer dual tuners.

IMHO, the dish USB dual OTA tuner performs better than the TiVo Roamio or Bolt (I do not own a Bolt, but it has been confirmed by the techies at the TCF that the Bolt uses the very same OTA tuner as the Romio). Implementation and software can produce a difference in performance of the very same OTA tuner.

FWIW, the older generation Dish ViP built-in OTA and the later two tuner module for ViP performed the same as the TiVo Series 3, which was very good (I believe those tuners for TiVo and Dish were from the same manufacturer, which may explain why they performed identical) and better than the current dish USB dual tuner in my estimation.

As a rule, OTA tuners in televisions seem to perform the best.

The OTA tuner in my vip211k is pretty sensitive. I have only one other tuner that has a slight edge. Of the 6 OTA tuners, TVs etc. The 211k is good and we have lp translators.

I have one weak channel on RF16 that my Roamio and Bolts both are able to display that my H3 with the AirTV dual tuner dongle can't seem to receive. It shows up in scans as weak but can't display the channel.
