The Sony Tuner Tu-1041 is a safe bet but it is very expensive and big. There is always Ebay where sometimes you can find one for about 200$ if you are lucky. Lentequip had them stocked for a while and sold them along the canatrans when the first units shipped.

I have bought the HPVDO portable tuner and have had great results with it. It is a diversity tuner with two antennas for about 700$. simple design and easy to use.

I always use a shark fin antenna to achieve best results. A canatrans will get you great results as long as you have a good receiver at the other end.

I have no clue. Ad says "PRESET U.S CHANNELS" It is for sure NTSC as I use it with my NTSC canatrans, I wonder if they offer a PAL version. Worth an email to them.

Hey Mark,

Just a quick note here to let you know that Lentequip will be launching its new receiver for the CanaTrans in a few weeks. It is currently in production with the first units to come on-line soon. The receiver will be called Tandem and has been in development for over 2 1/2 years. We opted not to use commonly available receiver "modules" due to their lack of performance, instead we designed our own receiver circuitry for unparalleled sensitivity and features (details will be on the webpage). We are in the process of ramping up production as fast as we can. The list of CanaTrans customers awaiting the receiver is quite long and most of our first run units are already spoken for. If you are interested in being notified, send us a quick e-mail or visit our website for details - the Tandem page will be posted as soon as the first units become available. I will have the unit at CineGear in Los Angeles for those who would like a hands-on demonstration. All CanaTrans power cables will of course be compatible with the Tandem.

Best regards to all,

Emery
