Looks like my neighbor just got B/CS locals. I thought it was kind of strange they put the multiswitch outside, but it is supposed to be waterproof.

I thought I saw on CBS that the Texans vs. Broncos game later this afternoon was going to be in HD. According to the ST schedule on D*, it looks like it is!! TitanTV does not have it shown as HD on KBTX, but they have been wrong before. Also, looks like next week the Texans/Colts game will be HD, too.

They were going to put my new multiswitch outside until adding an extra room made it easier to put it inside.

The locals come up in my guide now, but I still do not have a picture for them yet. The installer said they should come on generally within 48 hours. Does that make sense to any of you? What is inside the receiver that would just make them "click on"?

That sounds kind of strange. I think my neighbor's were on right when the guy did the install.

Be on standby to call 'em to flip the switch.

That does not bode well. It was 7 p.m. when he finished. Perhaps he just didn't want to wait around for a connection...

Usually if you make a program change it shows up on your TV in a matter of seconds of notifying D*. Are you sure you have good signal on the new sat, and your receiver is capable of seeing it?

Looks like KTRK-ABC13 is having channel mapping problems again. I have to tune to 32-1 to get it. Also, LOTR on WB39 looks and sounds great tonight, although it is dropping out some. They have 5.1 audio set up now.

FOTR was pretty cool tonight except for the annoying WB bug framed for 4:3.

Blastid... oh well, I would have hoped for HD coverage, but I guess that's being too hopeful.

I'd hate to say it, but I'm a Tech graduate

No wonder I never liked any of Ishman's posts. Damn Cox sucker too! (not that there is anything wrong with that).

Just as an update... my previous installer for locals had no idea what the hell he was doing and a new guy is coming out this afternoon.

Hope he figures it out! How did you determine the first guy used to work for Cox?

dsl or cable? I hear verizon might be bringing their fios (fibre optic) here fairly soon and if that that would completly kickass.... As for cable with cox theres no telling if ever (but probably when verizon updates their speeds cox will follow, just to stay competative)

On another OT... I purposely let my domain expire because I want to come up with a new one and register it at godaddy (much cheaper)... but now Im having tourble coming up with a new name.... anybody got some ideas? I want to keep it theater related since it will house my home theater webpage. and the only thing so far that might be doable is "www.arcinema.com"... I want something fairly easy to remember.

From me? I thought I was one of the kinder ones around here. Wait 'til mwesson and labmansid get a hold of this.

I guess www.jagouar.com is too simple (and hard to spell).
