From what I understand, DVI really shows an improved image with fixed pixel displays such as DLP, LCD, and plasma. A tube based standard RPTV usually will not show much, if any, improvement, which likely explains why you are not seeing much improvement in PQ. If you do decide to keep using the DVI, order a $20 cable online and return the $100 Monster Cable. There won't be any PQ difference since it is all digital.
I have Sony TV KV32HS500 -- and I am sure the picture will not improve to much but I was interested in the ability to switch the 4:3 to 16:9 without having to cycle thru different inputs on the TV -- rather let the cable box do it for me ..
Besides its something new and I am still learning about all this stuff -- and getting ready for that 49 in Sony I have my eye on
Any one having problems with the audio on channel 9-1? It has been out all week. Figured it was a problem at the station, now I'm starting to wonder. 9-2 audio works great (as do all other O-T-A channels). I am using a Samsung HDTV DirectTV receiver w/ additional antenna. Never had this problem.
Just a follow up to my BHN signal-level problem....seems like that was, in fact, the problem. Unfortunately, I wasn't home when he got to the house, but he told my wife he "boosted the signal". Not sure how he would do that, but it seemed to have done the trick. BTW....he was shocked that I got the Pace 550 to work with my Samsung HLN over DVI....he didn't think that was possible.....Anyway, thanks for the advice, Greg.
Can anyone recommend a decent OTA receiver for a low price? I only want an OTA tuner w/an antenna in my attic, not a DirectTV solution. I am thinking about getting a samsung t351 (I think i got that number right) on ebay but I read several reviews that said the failure rate of this model is abnormally high. Any suggestions would be great. I'm looking to spend $200 or less on the receiver (hence the decision to get a used one!)
Anyone getting CSI digital? My off the air receiver is getting a full strength signal, but no video or sound. The non digital on channel six is ok. The dang thing quit about 15 minutes into the program. Also they lost their second channel with the weather data.
Suspect a PSIP problem. No KMG picture from my DST-3000, but my MDP-100 PC card that is connected to same OTA antenna was receiving picture just fine. DST-3000 is really picky about PSIP whereas MDP-100 is fairly tolerant. Problem had not been fixed when I went to bed last night. Haven't checked this morning.

Anyone have insight?
I am using a Samsung TS-160 receiver and have had no audio on channel 9.1 and channel 27.1 for the past week. Looks like a PSIP problem that is effecting TS-160 receivers.
For the audio issue you might check to make sure you are not stuck on some SAP channel. I had this happen a couple of time on my Zenith. I would go select the other audio channel and all would be well again. Probably the PSIP, but it's something to look into while you wait...
Anyone have a solution for OTA in the Heathrow/Lake Mary Area. Trying to decide what to use with the DirectV reciever. Whether indoor antenna or something in the attic. any sugestions from anybody would be apprciated.
As I read posts by TW customers who have HD DVR's up and running and as I count down the days to the arrival of my HD TiVo, I'm wondering if Greg (or anybody else for that matter) can provide an update on the status of these HD DVR boxes for Bright House customers in Central Florida. Any info, definitive or speculative will be most appreciated.
Is anyone having problems with the PSIP data on WRBW (UPN 65) today? I just activated my HR10-250 (HDTV Tivo) and get the "searching for signal on antenna in" when I tune to 65-1. Program data is in the guide for 65-1. I get a picture on 41-1, but there is no guide data there.
ebockelman - This is the way is has been for as long as I can remember. Apparently WRBW can't (or won't) change their PSIP data stream to end back up on 65, and DTV can't (or won't) change the guide. Just the way it is I'm afraid. Maybe someday when more folks have Digital they will be bothered to fix it
INHD blackout on BHN.
Greg - can you explain the blackout rules? Is it established by BHN or by FSN?
I am not that surprised that the inhd game tonight was blacked out, but considering that you don't carry FSN that carried the game I am wondering why it was blacked out - or is it because of proximity to arena and not because of other tv carriers??
Just thought I would share an anecdote. I was at a customer's house that has Adelphia digital cable. As I was flipping though the digital channels I notice a logo from the past on one of the channels, TechTV. The channel was right, but it still has the ZDTV logo, for those of you who don't know, was the name of the channel over three years ago!!! How sad is it that- Adelphia can't even keep the channel logos up to date!
