    Totally funky DTV signals on KBEH-2 and KBEH-3

    I'll upload the recordings - Just to let you know,I can't check the audio portion of it, my TV set has no sound, but the DVD-recorder can record the sound. My computer can do sound but I disabled the output to allow enough memory on my 466Mhz computer to handle XP SP3 and IE8, even with all the...

    eBay Antenna Reviews, Ratings, and Discussion

    Well, I went shopping for DTV antennas, and was looking for an antenna with plenty of elements. This one caught my eye: I ordered it. However, what I got was this one: That's the Walito 2602. Very similar to the QuantumFX ANT-108 I actually received: Manual was riddled with Engrish...

    strangest online game you've played?

    I've played this one, it's pretty fun to play. NANACA￾õCRASH!! (don't really need Japanese language pack to play) You start off by choosing the angle and power, where a bicyclist crashes into a character, sending him off tumbling to a far distance. Characters he'll encounter boost or slow...

    This entire topic should close 90 days after the coupon program ends on July 31, 2009, right? Just a passing thought.

    DTV Helpers: Get a free DTVAnswers hat or water bottle from the NAB!

    I was channel surfing and I saw a show on KOCE about setting up a DTV converter box, as well as other digital options. They say if you write them a letter, in about 200 words, how you helped someone with the DTV transition, they'll send you a free light orange DTVAnswers water bottle or sun...

    Motorola DSR-550 VOOM box (not a CECB)

    Added for completeness in my reviews. Here's one that hasn't been reviewed here. It is NOT a CECB as it has DVI and HDTV video outputs, as well as the SPDIF audio output. It also has the standard RFout, video, left and right audio outputs. The RFin module is interesting, it can be removed, for...
