Default Reception wise.. the OTA portion of VOOM receivers fairly decent.

Just got a hold of a VOOM receiver..
OTA tuner portion still works without SAT connection.

Comparing VOOM (motorola DSR-550) to my Zenith HDV-420 (4th gen

Outputs both component and S-video at the same time..
(Which is handy for recording to DVD-R, not avail on zenith)..

It's a bit more sensitive.
Strong/reliable signal levels for a station 70 miles away.
Switching between channels is really fast.. (almost too fast)..
Channel selection allows skipping certain sub-channels.. (not
possible on HDV-420).
Switching between aspect modes is somewhat more kunky..
Favorites no longer function without Voom Sat service.
