Which tuner to get and getting the most from it. Thank God, for the radio!

RE: "Or, shall I just go with an omni directional FM antenna"

I'm most concerned with the television channel reception from Buffalo. for FM, I really only listen to a couple and both are located in Toronto as I listen to classical and jazz.

From where I live the CN tower and Buffalo transmitters are alomost literally in-line with each other; about 5-10 degrees and most antennas that meet the distance and channel criteria I've come across seem to cover about 20-30 degress so I do not need an omni directional antenna.

One thread I've read has a writer who lives just north of me and on the same line of site as I am is using a CM4228HD and getting into Buffalo with no problem but, the 4228 only is designed for channel 7 to 69. He did mention it seems good on FM, better than a twin folded dipole he had been using but it picks nothing up when he tried 2-1 and 2-2 so, not a consideration for me.
