And remember, Antenna TV as all the others have dubbed programs and movies in to a file playback system so once it is in the system, if there are glitches and hiccups, they are there for the life of the file.

Piece of useless trivia - The automation playback system used for Antenna TV and This TV is the same exact system we use here.

All opinions expressed (unless otherwise noted) are the posters and NOT the posters employers. The poster in NO WAY is/will speak for his employers.

Among those programs that do not look really good today are the Norman Lear shows, including All in the Family and associated shows. They have, at least, survived. The British show on which All in the Family was inspired had less luck. The entire first production of "Til Death do us Part" seems completely lost.. Like All in the Family, it was produced on videotape, but, as nobody saw future interest in the program, being somewhat topical, the tape was recycled for other uses. That was a BBC decision. When the show went to commercial TV, it was archived. The temptation on both sides of the Atlantic to reuse videotape was pretty strong in the first 10-15 years of the technology.

The incentive auction is designed to be a market-based means for TV stations to sell their spectrum indirectly to wireless companies. So if you're a station losing money or not making a lot of money, you can opt to sell your spectrum to the FCC who, in turn, will sell it to the wireless companies. If not enough stations opt to sell, then nothing happens. If lots of stations sell, then the TV band shrinks. (Only full-power and Class A stations are eligible.)

To get 84 MHz (channels above 37) would require about 200-300 stations to sell, but of course, it has to be the right 200-300 stations.

Comments are my own and not that of the FCC (my employer) or anyone else.

That's "Till Death Us Do Part". The wording was taken straight from the Book of Common Prayer, 1662 revision.

That sounds like something Archie would say.
On the topic of "All in the Family", I was thinking about what Archie and Edith's wedding ceremony would have been like if Archie had written the vows. The words "love, honor, and stifle" came to mind.

Hi all,
First post after some lurking.
Built house in 2006 and TV house cabling done by TW and Dishnetwork.
Just had a run put in to the attic to get to a Winegard HD-4400 antenna costing about $100
Playing with permanent mounting for antenna and wondering what experiences have been encountered by group that you would advise to do or avoid if in my place.
Thanks

It woould be helpful to go to TVFool.com and determine what your likely reception prospects are. Posting the results here will help with advice. As I understand things, one may not post an attachment until after the fifth posting here. So, if you know any TV jokes, you might post them one at a time until you get past five.

Avoid drilling into the roof if possible. The easiest and best mountings are on the side of the house... chimneys seem like a good idea for ease of installation, but some chimenys have sustained damage from having to big of an antenna mounted on it and the wind catching it...
