    Question Which TV Tuner should I go for?

    I have a Pioneer HU with LCD screen and I want to install a TV tuner... My local shop basically has 2 choices for me to choose from:

    1) Cheap brand $200 installed.
    2) Pioneer brand $385 installed.

    The advantage that the Pioneer has is that its an add-on to my HU, so I can use the same remote control (the other brand has a separate remote), plus the reception is suppose to be better (less static)... however, it is $185 more expensive so I don't know which one I should do.

    Does anyone have the Pioneer TV tuner or any other brand they could comment on? Thanks!

    i say if you are going to put anything in your car do it once so you wont have to do it again unless you want too. i say pionneer because you run into problems later with the cheap brand. pioneer is designed to work with other pioneer's the cheap brand says it works but it might not work that great
