OK thanks, I actually have a CM 3671 w/CM 7777 that is used for DXing. It's been so long since I actually had a closeup look at the 7777-is there a way to connect an additional coax to feed my non-DXing TV from the 7777?

Ahh if you mean is there a way to connect a second TV to the 3671/7777 setup, yes....merely install a coaxial splitter (rated at 50-900MHz) between the "DX" TV and the Power Supply that feeds the 7777...then use the splitter to feed a coax run to the other TV as well as the current coax to the "DX" TV...you will only lose 3db in signal levels....

Maybe KLFY was having issues...

KAOB 27.2's channel is screwed up (it always seems to be one thing or another)...they are running some John Wayne movies (Chisum is one) and the audio is HORRIBLE! When it has played before, it was ok...but the last two showings (including today) has hum and LOW audio level...the local spots have been better overall....but then the other subchannels have audio levels issues......

You would THINK someone would fix the issues (aspect ratio on 27.2 and the audio issues as well as leveling ALL the sub-channels audio)....its not that HARD....
