Just nice to see a team other than the Patriots in the Superbowl. They have won 3 of the last 5 bowls I think

Oh I see now.

Belo needs the money so KMOV can pre-empt prime time network programming to bring us programs such as ...

Since I have Charter I understand that I would need an antenna to pick up CBS HD and ABC HD. Does this antenna need to be in my attic or on my roof, or could I just place it next to a window? What do I attach the antenna to? The Moxibox or directly to the TV? How would I access these channels on my plasma? It does not have a tuner. Thank you.

From my understanding the Moxi box does not have an OTA input, so you would need to
hook it to an external ATSC tuner since you stated your plasma does not have a tuner.

As far as the type of antenna you need, check out www.antennaweb.org and see what
kind it recommends. Doug has more information in the post above.

There's Good TV, Better TV and DirecTV, but nothing beats a calibrated TV!!

You will have to buy a tuner and as far as the antenna goes you just need to try different locations to see what works the best for you.the tuner picks up hd over the air you would have to input the the cable from your tuner to your tv along with your sound.I just switch a hdmi cable from my charter box to my tuner when I need ota hd and just leave my digital sound on the seperate tuner.I am a novice at this so maybe the pros will chime in to.

Its true you need to get a tuner if your TV doesn't have one built in, the Moxi has no OTA input (I have one too.) My TV does have a tuner and I've lived in several places in the city and my indoor Silver Sensor has always picked up everything pretty well. Also keep in mind you cannot record OTA programs on the Moxi.

The programming director for KMOV has an immense hatred for "How I Met Your Mother". For the umpteenth time it is being broadcast at 2:05 am.

Let's see. Brady has 2 hands on the ball and fumbles. Ref invents the tuck rule so Al Davis and the Raiders get screwed. No one cares, its the Raiders and it would be REALLY COOL if a team named Patriots play in the Super Bowl after 911.

Pats change bump and run to grab and tackle. Beat rams in Super Bowl. With the help of stubborn Mike.

"Let em play Corollo" fails to call mugging of Indy tight end by McGinnest and Tom JacKson says "You're not going to get a call like that in a game like this." WHY NOT??? NFL films doesn't show series in highlights of the game.

League vows to enforce the 5 yard rule. Reporters call it the Patriot rule. Only teams that they call it on are Green Bay and Panthers.

If you don't enfoce the rules, then the cheaters win. All the crying about guys taking steroids in baseball and teams are allowed to cheat in big games with the blessing of the NFL.

I have just about had it with football. Going back to golf where the players call penalties on themselves. If they don't know the rule, someone watching will call it for them.

Rant off

There's also the ridiculous hype that comes from the various northeastern based media outlets (read ESPN) that treat people like Tom Brady and Derek Jeter as if they are examples of perfection on earth that must be universally adored by all the sports world.

Any other Dish customers having trouble tuning into KMOV-HD and KDNL-HD? SD is fine for those two channels. I haven't been able to get either of those channels for the past couple days on my ViP622.

Maybe the recent weather screwed something up? I can the switch test a few times because I kept getting an error. It finally completed successfully but I still can't tune to those 2 stations. I'm about to call Dish technical support but I'd thought I'd check here first for suggestions, etc.

Those 2 are good on my 622. My problem channel is 11-1

We watch them both, on both 622's, everyday...no new issues.

I did see an old stutter/jump-on-pause today, while watching a playback. Just once, but it was weird....a flashback to the early days.

KPLR still bites here too, on both the 622's and 211's. Something Dish needs to get fixed.

So why cant Charter and Mediacom? umm.

http://multichannel.com/article/CA64...=Breaking+News

Time Warner Cable's new retransmission-consent deal with Sinclair Broadcast Group covers all of its subscribers in markets that carry Sinclair TV-station signals, not just those where Time Warner acquired systems from now-bankrupt Adelphia Communications.

Time Warner said Monday that it will carry the analog and digital signals of 35 TV stations owned or operated by the broadcaster in 22 markets for the next three years.

The cable operator and Sinclair finalized a new retransmission-consent pact Friday just hours before an extension of their old agreement was set to expire.

The new retransmission-consent deal expires Dec. 31, 2009, according to Sinclair and to.....

Everyone....help a bro out...please pray (or whatever you choose to do) that the sun todays melts some more snow.

At 3:30 the D* installer is coming. He's going to have to bury a cable, less snow will make it easier, easier will make it faster, faster means the sooner I get rid of Charter.

I managed to get the D* DVR (H-20 or whatever) in less than two weeks, I'm hoping the bugs have mostly been worked out...or will be soon.

I don't know, but at least someone (JP Morgan analyst) thinks it improves the chances of a Charter/Sinclair deal

Quote:


Blackledge also said the Time Warner deal bolsters Sinclair's chances of making similar agreements with other cable-TV carriers, including Cox Communications Inc. and Charter Communications Inc.

It's the HR20 and for the most part they have been worked out.

When you hook up the DVR as soon as it turns on and you see the WELCOME screen
press 0 2 4 6 8 to download the newest firmware. You will see a screen that says
downloading firmware.

This way you should be able to set up your OTA if you have one and experience the joys of leasing.

There's Good TV, Better TV and DirecTV, but nothing beats a calibrated TV!!

There are only a few shows that I regularly watch on CBS (How I met your mother, being one of them) and they have to pre-empt it for a local show. If anybody knows if/when they will re-air "How I met your Mother" please let me know.

Edit: Oops, I posted too soon. I see it will re-air at 2:05 AM Thanks

Well at least the sun is out. Hope it goes well.

If anyone else is thinking of getting D*, let me know first as they are offering a referral deal that benefits us both.

Pray, heck, you don't need us to pray. Don't you know? As soon as you order Directv, you have a direct path to The Man Upstairs.

It's good to see another person speaking with their checkbook by not supporting a terrible company.
