You are clearly entitled to your opinion about being one thread, and limited posting does sort of tie in with that. How about eliminating a few thousand old posts, however?
Thats odd. As a D* subscriber, I have no interest in Charter, and don't imagine Charter subscribers have much interest in D* or E* either. A whole lot of places have broken their subscriptions into multiple parts. Just because somebody says lets not do it doesn't make it a bad idea.
Secondarily, why not eliminate the first couple thousand posts in this thread? It is getting unwieldy, and the answers that appllied a few years ago don't have much to do with today.
Within this DMA, we're a cornucopia of different HD-types: OTA, Cable, D* and E*. We're not in an area for which OTA is the main source of HD due to Mountains, Trees, etc. I don't recall the intent of this thread being strictly OTA. BTW, I looked through the thousands of posts in this "unwieldy" thread to come to that particular conclusion. You might disagree with the postings here or the direction of this thread, but, to the credit of all of the posters here in relation to HD reception, I believe all of the information and opinions that are provided here has made each one of us better HDTV Consumers.
When I looked through the old posts a few weeks ago for the history of Cable adding HD within this DMA, it was very valuable information as it had dates for which new channels were added and demonstrated how slow the additions were taking place (as reported by the thread's readers like myself). I wouldn't be an advocate of purging that history as it contains valuable info from the thousands of previous posts. Besides, isn't your signature "Anything worth doing, is worth doing to excess."?
Just because somebody says lets do something doesn't mean we all have to jump on the bandwagon. Please feel free to use the D* Thread if you feel the need to keep up with just D* issues: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=914047
(highly recommended reading) . The rest of us will continue educating each other about our experiences with HD via OTA, Cable and Satellite.
