There are audio decoding and rendering issues on a handful of channels that use a specific version of AAC on the broadcast.
Generally though the F15 outperforms every other box I'm aware of in one important aspect ..
Gain on fringe channels.
This is the reason I rave about the F15..
It is not perfect ..but if you are a fta DXer its the box of choice ..
For other apps such as CS and addons other boxes are better.
So ..as part of a rounded system ..imo ..its a must have ...but for other users who just want to watch TV ...maybe an unnessasary purchase.

Hi Tanka ..
Output is configurable to NTSC ..So presumably it will accomodate the different aspect ratios as well.

Ive heard that the Technomate 5402 is good for fringe reception. Stil undecided between FD15 and the Technomate.

If you look in the Dr.HD section of the forum there are some discussions in there about the TM vs Dr.HD boxes. Just waiting for someone to do some comparisons or for me to find some more money and do it myself...
