Radio Shack

I hope this topic is deemed too far off topic. Radio Shack seems to have a rather bleak outlook. I stopped by the one in the Maul Of America today and they had signs posted 25% off everything. So, if there would happen to be any sort of TV related accessory that you need, this might be a good time to see if your local Radio Shack in closing. I bought an inline variable attenuator from them years ago and even though I am not using it currently, it can be helpful when MPDI (Multi Path Distortion Interference) wreaks havoc on ATSC tubenrs,

Not that I bought a ton from RS but they were kind of the go to store for various electronics parts. Wonder if Acme Electronics or even Axe Man are still around? Been years and years since I've been to either. I guess Shop Jimmie(I35W&hwy13) sells electronic parts but I've never made it there.

Correct
I assume it will be on RF9 as RF29 already has 2 HD stations (My29 & Fox 9-1) and Movies!
So they will probably put it on RF9 with Fox 9-9 and Bounce

My guess is that when Fox drops Bounce later this year, it will replace Bounce.

Awesome! I've thought in the past that MeTV and/or Antenna TV having a block of classic game shows during the broadcast day might be kind of cool (especially since GSN is mostly new, or newish, programming these days), but this is even better, not to mention OTA as well.

Couple thoughts on Justice Network
-shows are in a 6 hour loop with new shows starting at 5 PM Central
-they seem to run over the time by 30 to 45 seconds. Tivo is real good at the time but I recorded a couple episodes of Bait Car and missed the last few seconds on the 1st one and 30 seconds on the 2nd (had AK Troopers recorded too)

Oh thats right, Acme changed it's name to AEI a long time ago, but last I knew they were downtown Minneapolis on Washington Ave sandwiched between a couple of bars just North of Henepin Ave. Looks like my nearest Ax Man in Bloomington has closed although the first one on University Ave looks to be still open

Does anyone have a website (and home page) for H&I? I have been trying to find one with television listings and more info about H&I but when I Google it, I only get links about it from other sources.


There does not seem to be a home page website for Heroes & Icons, or if there is, I can not find it.

^^^ I couldn't find any either
The closest I could find was Weigel Broadcasting, it's parent company. Even Weigel's site was very poor in regards to H&I with no schedule I could find.

Hello
I don't know if you are aware of it but the picture and audio on WUMN-LD 13 PSIP 17-1 (RF17) in Minneapolis is atrocious. The video looks washed out, has wavy lines on it, and looks like an analog picture that someone is trying to receive. The audio is so loud and distorted that if you tune to the station you have to turn the volume down to almost nothing. Otherwise you are blown out of your seat. This has been going on for at least 3 or 4 months (the audio distortion just started). I know the "master feed" that is on C-Band is fine so its the local affiliate. I hope they can fix this soon.

Thank you
Looks like it did some good - 17-1 is in 1080i HD now ! I still can't understand spanish but picture looks great now.....
