    Samsung has announced a new HDTV tuner with a MSRP of $399, supposedly available this June. It will replace their current SIR-T150 OTA-only box. Hopefully other manufacturers will follow with new products at similarly reduced prices.

    Looks like the SIR-T150's replacement has one less HD component video outs, compared to the SIR-T150.

    Does firmware ever need to be updated, with HD-only stb's like the SIR-T150?
