The truck looks great Scott. In fact a little too good. I can see your address in the reflection. Your truck will be at the chop shop by midnight.

As for his poor current analog reception, what sort of antenna is he using? What sort of cabling is in place? I'm not saying that analog reception isn't a worthwhile indicator of what digital reception will be, but it's not fail-proof as there are many other variables involved.

Your friend should determine how far away he is from the towers and then buy an antenna with an appropriate rating for that distance. UHF-only is better than UHF/VHF combo, and rooftop is better than attic, though I'd think an attic installation should be doable from that range.

The wild card in any given antenna installation is what might stand between the antenna and the tower(s), either man-made or topological. That's why there are no guarantees, but I think it's worth making the effort to find out what sort of digital reception he can manage, because I think the prospects are more than reasonable.

I guess the Cards-Cubs game is not in HD today? The advertisement FOX just aired said HD beside the 2nd tier Yankee-Red Sox rivalry, and no HD by our game.

Guess we now know that this excerpt is defined as:
"...most of which are presented in High Definition..."
taken from FOX's press release regarding their GOTW coverage.

I'm guessing Joe will be at Fenway, as well.

Doug,
I don't know if this will help but I use a program called Adobe Reader Speedup to make Adobe 8.0 load faster, and work less sluggishly.

http://www.softpedia.com/get/Office-...-SpeedUp.shtml

The only other thing i want to about it, is that I have the basic reader, and not Adobe Reader 8.0 Pro. I am not sure if adobe reader speedup is compatible with pro or not.

I notice last night that ESPN2 HD was added to charter's lineup. How long ago did this happen?

I'm really hoping the Houston ChampCar race on ESPN tomorrow is in HD, but not giving it high expectations.

But anything is better than having it on CBS or NBC.

I bought my parents a DVD player w/ speakers about 6 years ago. I want to just replace the DVD player and be able to connect the 5 speakers directly to the DVD player (like I currently do). I haven't been able to find any DVD players that have the internal 5.1 speaker outputs.

I'm not opposed to puchasing another DVD player / speaker combo, but I it would be nice to just replace the DVD player.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for the tip on Speedup. Seems bizarre that this sort of application needs a "speed up" add-in, but at least this confirms that I'm not the only one seeing pitiful performance. Although I'd really like to own an authoring version of Acrobat, based on my experiences so far, I'll be going back to the free Reader-only app when the trial expires. But it sounds like I'll probably still need Speedup then.

One other point about this Adobe application that annoys me no end: By default, Adobe adds its own toolbar and a single button to my eMail editor screens (Word in Outlook 2003). Even when I click to turn that toolbar off, it randomly comes back as I prepare my messages.

To me, this is unacceptable behavior from a "guest" on my computer. And it's made worse by the fact that the Adobe button is residing in its own toolbar, taking up a whole row in the menu area and reducing the amount of text I can see when I'm writing.

It's official: Adobe is the newest occupant on my permanent shitlist.

Note: I figured out how to delete the Adobe menus (actually three of them, each with no more than two buttons) by going into the Customize menu in Word. Still, this sort of action shouldn't be required...

Not sure when it actually took place, but the first siting here was noted on Thursday...

Great! Thanks!

Might there be a similar outline of which DTV channels are on which satellites and transponders, for trouble-shooting assistance?

Dan,

Glad to hear you found the Guide useful.

But I don't compile anything like the satellite slottings. I suspect that it could be found at The Satellite Guys site, or maybe someone here has it or can point you to it.

I found a site http://www.lyngsat.com/packages/america.html that helps. It looks like the StL locals, and most of the SD channels, are on 101°; and most of the HD on 110° with a few on 119°.

With my odd-number 101° transponders in the mid-30's for signal strength and the even-numbered at 0, I'm not seeing much DTV right now!

Funny. Glad I'm insured.

Well, I watched up to chapter 20 of Superman Returns on HD-DVD. That is when my P.O.S. Xbox add-on decided to freeze. I hate that thing with a passion. Anyone want one cheap?

There is also an article in this weeks webster kirkwood times

http://www.websterkirkwoodtimes.com/...-token.subpub=

"Typically, only about 6 percent of dissatisfied customers will actually take the time to make a complaint to BBB," said Corey. "So this gives you some idea of the volume of unhappy customers that are out there when it comes to Charter Communications."

also from the story..

"The consumer complaints come at a bad time for Charter. Its franchise agreements are up for renewal in the coming months with area cities from Shrewsbury to Fenton. Area cities have logged resident complaints about service, as well as cable rate hikes, which have gone up almost 95 percent since 1995."

I'm waiting for Uverse to roll out in Webster. Of course there is controversy here due to the "not in my back yard" where ATT is installing new equipment boxes here in Webster.....

And....there's the weak, they just wear down....like me.
A very smart person, recently told me, he thinks, a certain percentage of call-ins are purposely routed into never-never-land....playing the percentages of those who will just go-away, and not call back again.

In March 2006, some Charter installer ran a 750 foot orange cable to connect two boxes together....across the rear of 2 private properties. After 4 months of trying, having tech's come out, and actually charging me a $32. service call once...I just gave up. 14 months later, it's still there, but I can no longer be bothered.

I'm sure no one else noticed, because I doubt anyone was watching. We had friends in town for the weekend and I happened to be flipping around today. The National Heads Up Poker Tournament is on NBC. It wasn't in HD and I didn't expect an event like that to be. Apparently someone at our HD Leader made the same assumption as me, because about 15 minutes into the show, voila, the switch was flipped and it WAS HD. What kind of education does it take to flip a switch, geesh.

Edit: For anyone interested this is airing in parts over the next 3-5 weeks on the HD leader on Sundays at 11, I believe.

I can't think of a signature that wouldn't offend at least someone.

I've noticed on my Olevia with QAM tuner, I'm now picking up some new channels with charter:

1-6
CW-11-D2
Tube TV

1-5
KETC9
No picture, no sound

1-4
KETCKid

1-2
KETC HD
No picture, no sound

1-1
CW11-DT
No picture, no sound

When I first noticed this the other night, there also was a KDNL - HD channel with no picture and no sound. Now that one is gone. It would be nice if this means charter will have unencrypted locals in HD sometime in the near future.

A third party mows both mine, and the neighbor's yards. He has the cable strung thru the trees, and over the fences and bushes. Obviously, it was put there to provide service (cable or pipeline) to one of the neighbors. Charter cannot confirm, or deny that, but, of course, they have no record of the cable existing. They are such a cluster----.

One tech, who was here, told me, they (Charter) is within their easement zone. Moron! Which, they are...but still, no utility can leave a live cable just laying across the ground. I'd estimate the distance between the boxes to be 750', but the cable run is about 900'. The installers always leave extra, so the burial crew has enough to "work" with. So, it is "S'd" along the ground and through the trees, etc.

Done the BBB thing....dead end, and I've contacted Nixon's office. Short of retaining counsel and filing a formal property infringement action, there's no legal options available.

I am going to check out the Post columnist...thanks for that, Dan.

I agree with the rest: mower, weed eater, ax, shovel. I even watched a rabbit chew about 60% through my drop before they buried it. I was told 3-4 weeks. It took over 2 months and weekly calls to corporate. Try this name and #314-288-3387, Jenny Brenan.

2 years ago I had a black cable running through my yard and 2 others (the cable box is in my yard and doesn't fasten down) I accidentally cut it with my lawn mower. That night around 2 am someone showed up in my yard to repair it. The next day I cut at the box and my fence and threw the 30 ft of cable in the trash.

No one ever came to run a new cable.

Hello, all,

I have been away for a period of a few months, but now its good to be back. Hope everyone is well and I'm looking forward to more STL-area HDTV discussion.

I noticed this thread title seems to have changed from St. Louis , MO - HDTV to St. Louis, MO - OTA. Has the STL thread been split into OTA and other varieties? I certainly hope not.

My Specs:

Sony KDF55WF655 HDTV | Pioneer VSX1015TX Receiver | JBL SCS180SC 6.1 Surround Speakers | DirecTV HR20 | HTPC | PlayStation3

I wouldn't really call it a split. While a STL Charter thread now exists, there's probably still the same level of discussion about Charter here in the OTA thread (witness this very page) as there ever was.

I never really understood the logic of starting a Charter thread but in the end, the net effect here is pretty close to zero and the guys who wanted their own Charter discussion seem satisfied.

Good to have you back, Winston.
