Don't know what to tell you. They added a bunch of stuff to it last night including SeaBiscuit in HD and some IMAX stuff.

For all Mitsubishi owners, Craig Miller will be travelling through town soon doing calibrations. To schedule a session, contact him via MG Home Theater Calibrations.

I don't have exact dates since I declined a calibration this time. I'm saving for a projector for the theater room. I'll try my hand at some advanced tweaks from the Spot.

However, you have to join ($25 / year) to get to the Tweaks section.

Hope this helps.

Craig and Sue Miller will be coming through Memphis around the last week of May / first of June. He calibrated my set last year and you wouldn't believe the difference!

I moved recently and they took my set apart to get it upstairs. Craig is coming by to get everything back to wonderful.

Send them an email if you are interested in their services.

mghometheater@earthlink.net

You can also see his website at:

Has anyone seen the shorts on ESPN about the scout during Sportscenter? They were playing part 4 this morning and in the background when the 2 guys were talking and I thought to myself that the seating sign was really familiar. They showed a full view at the end and it turns out its AutoZone Park.

Kinda cool

Anyone in the Memphis area with Voom? I seem to be having some issues getting OTA. According to antennaweb.org, I'm only 8.6 miles from the furthest antenna. Trying to find a OTA antenna that works. Already tried the Winegard Square Shooter.

Zenith Silver Sensor whoops arse for me. With my Hughes unit, I get 3, 5, 13, 24, 30 and 50 pretty clear. (East Memphis). I will say not all those came in when my STB was the Samsung 360. The Hughes is much more sensitive, at least with the Silver Sensor.

I'm not sure you can still find them, but I get everything except 13 with the Radio Shack Double Bow Tie in the attic. The best $9 I ever spent!!!

Anyone having audio trouble with 3-2? I am getting video but no audio. 3-1 is fine, just the AnyTime News Channel on 3-2 that has the problem.

tscallions,

Keep us all informed on VOOM. I have DirecTV but they are getting way behind in adding new HD.

I am getting very low signal strength on 3-1, and as usual 5-1.

24-1, 30-1 are full strength and 50-1 is well above what I get from 5-1.

This is all par for the course execpt for 3-1 which is usually much higher.

Any info on this??

I've seen things you wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate.

Anyone else having trouble with 24-1? I was watching the NBA finals last night and got a lot of audio and video problems. The picture was skipping and the audio was coming in and out. The picture never broke up, just kept skipping. My signal the whole time was around 95 and I wasn't having trouble on any of the other digital stations.

I wasn't. The problem I get with 24 is every now and then there will be some static sound, I think its called digital noise? Not sure. But I never lost audio or video last night. I hate it when they break from the HD feed to show a preview of a story they will be showing on the news.

I'm having audio problems with 24-1 as well. I thought it was just me but I have changed receivers and am still having the same problem. Last night watching the Lakers/Pistons game, the audio seems to be broadcast at an extremely loud and distorted level. I have to turn my receiver basically to minimum and then there is still distortion. Are there any fixes?

BTW - I have a Zenith 520 and a HDTivo receiver.

ps. I just turned to "According to Jim" and both the audio and video was freezing. The audio seemed to be at normal levels. Does anybody know what's going on?

You're seem to be having the same exact problem I am. I also have an HDTiVo. Is it only happening to you on 24-1? I'm watching the pre-game NBA show right now and it is happening again. Very IRRITATING!!!!

My signal strength is around 90. The picture doesn't actually break up. It's more like a stutter with the audio and video. I'm located around Walnut Grove & White Station. It's only happening on 24-1.
