Can anyone recommend a good set top antenna for Fresno? My signal is usually around 50%.
From Merced, using a Silver Sensor, I was able to pull in solid digital signals from NBC / CBS / FOX / WB (sorry I forget all the affiliate call signs atm) - all w/my trusty Silver Sensor. If you search the forums you'll find tons of threads on the SS.
On an entirely different topic, now that my 6412 is in, I called up the engineering department at KMPH and asked if they had any idea when Comcast would carry the digital signal. The engineer I spoke with, a very amicable and helpful fellow (didn't get his name, had an English accent I think), said the KMPH and Comcast engineers have already done all the testing and everything is a go
- *PENDING* Comcast and Pappas coming to an agreement on the terms.
He said literally it would take about 1 second from the moment they're told the agreement is reached to when they can go live with the signal on Comcast's network - all the testing, config, and integration is done.
It certainly won't hurt, then, for everyone to start phoning & calling both Comcast and Pappas to get this done. Might not even hurt if anyone knows someone at the Bee - there were several areas where the Superbowl was "saved" last year (often just days before the event), due to local media pointing some light at the fact that thousands of folks were not going to be able to see the Superbowl in HD due to bureaucratic squabbling.
