Thanks Jochen,
The PNA4612 is available from Digikey here, and the Vishay parts are not.
It is also interesting that the TSOP1838 is a discontinued part. We used to use them where I work and have replaced them with TSOP2838 and/or TSOP4838. I might be able to get one of each to compare, if I ask nicely. The data sheet for the TSOP4838 gaves a range of 22m, vs 11m for the PNA4612. They may however be using different test methods.
