    Review: New Channels or Shows of interest

    We seem to not have a clear place to announce the finding of a New Channel, or bring notice to some Show that others may be interested in. So, this Thread may be of help to our Viewers. :applause:

    Recreational Vehicle Antennas

    I have adequately collected appropriate Cables/adaptors to power a small DTV for mobile use, but, have had trouble selecting an Antenna. Viewed several "crank up" units, but they are too bulky and require a lot of drilling through the chassis. Thought about maybe using a C1C in Table Top...

    What does it take....

    I think saying that having a fast connection to the Internet, would certainly be advantageous in watching TV and mainly Movies. But, what's fast enough ? Below is a capture of a speed test on my connection. Is it good or bad ?

    Question: Where did this come from ?

    Fellas, I've got a little 10" Coby DTV on the Breakfast Room table, for News, Weather and some Sports while we're eating. It's being fed by an Antennas Direct C-1, which is temporary, given I'm running new Cable to the Attic. Anyway, did a auto-scan, and came up with 102 channels, which means...

    Last Resort, another Lost ?

    ABC has a new Series... Last Resort. It's listed as a... Drama, War, Action, Military, Nautical, Adventure ! That certainly got my attention, and has IMHO great promise to be a very interesting series. As long as they don't try to make it another "Lost". Did you watch it ?

    Comcast givith...then take it away.

    I have the Digital Preferred teer, with a HDD, since I can not watch many of my preferred programs at the time they are aired. Understand, that one has to pay extra for a recorder. Last week I had (on Sundays) set up my weekly recording schedules, and sat down on Tuesday afternoon, to watch the...

    Comcast is screwing us AGAIN !

    Some months ago, Comcast dropped/changed several Channels, where one could no longer see them on older Analog TV's. Typical. Then (probably out of shame) were forced to furnish us with a Box, which was their version of a D/A Converter, where we could see those channels again. Yea, it's free...

    DTVPal DVR Display Problem

    My software Ver is F208 if that's relevant. Went to do an entry on a Timer Event, and noticed that there was no picture. Usually, when I turn it on, it goes to the most recently recorded channel, and you can see the ongoing video and sound. This time, nothing ! Did a Channel up and down...

    Blu-Ray... Door 1. 2, or 3 ?

    WOW, there's a LOT of choices out there now, Disc's are on the shelves by the dozens. I've viewed several "consumer" reports, pricing mainly the issue on those. Actually, I'm not too worried about price, wouldn't mind doing $300 or so, for the right unit. Therein is the problem, which is...

    Question: Blue Ray Door 1, 2 or 3 ?

    Blu Ray - Door 1, 2 or 3 ? As in the change to Digital, I rate myself as one of the most avid "Kickers and Screamers", but technology moves on, regardless of my stick in the mud attitude. So, here comes Blue Ray, and as in many other devices, they ARE varied ! I've taken a short look at...
