Thanks goman, that sounds pretty good! Hopefully Cox will get the other networks eventually. Sounds like KEYT is in the works for the ABC shows. Does anyone know if KKFX is broadcasting HD OTA up in Santa Maria?
I got a box for my computer (EyeTV 500 for Mac) that picks up OTA digital signals but of course the only one it can get is KEYT-DT which is not yet HD, and the quality is nothing special. I saw on another thread that only 3% of households in the country are unable to get any broadcast HD and we in SB are in that unlucky 3% so far. Hopefully KEYT will get on the HD bandwagon later this year and then we will join the civilized world.
The EyeTV also has a cable input and is supposed to be able to get "clear QAM" digital cable signals which are unencrypted, but I am not getting any. Users in other areas report that they can get the free HD channels (i.e. the ones carried by cable which are also broadcast OTA, like KSBY-DT and KCOY-DT) off their cable systems this way but it is not working for me. Well, I don't actually have digital cable, I have analog, but I thought that they broadcast the same thing to everyone and the difference with digital was the cable box. But maybe I'm wrong about that.
