TV tuner module in Aonya DVD recorder

Hi All,

I have this Aonya DVD/HDD recorder, great unit, but fitted with a CDT
5APL15 tuner module - ordinary terrestrial analog tuner, which gives
terrible TV quality. Problem is that the video signal from the tuner
saturates, giving all the video a 'whiteout' appearance. Seems to be a
common problem wth this, as the agents solution is to detune the channel
until it looks 'better'. IMHO it still looks terrible. I can get
perfect quality with an external video input, but that loses the
facility of being able to setup and record from several different
channels within the recorder itself.

Anyone know of any way of reducing the internal video levels so it
doesnt saturate, or a replacement tuner with the same interface ( I2C )
and better quality ?
