The CONNECT is the previous generation model that has been discontinued. The CONNECT Duo is its direct replacement. It features newer tuners with improved reception and lower power usage. They otherwise have the same features and functions. The Quatro is like the Duo except it has 2 additional tuners.

I ordered a Connect before seeing this post, is the "improved reception" of the Duo worth returning the Connect and getting the Connect Duo? I just got the Connect but haven't installed it yet.

It might depend upon your particular situation. Some users reported worse reception with the new Duo/Quatro tuners over the previous Connect tuners. YMMV.

I guess I just need to connect the Connect and see how the reception is.

Thanks for your response.
