I think a guide for the less wealthy, is still needed - maybe, how to make a 'bedroom-cinema'...

I want to know is where is there a guide or menu available of the programming for broadcasts in the St. Louis area?

These resources will help. They will tell you what's available in your area.

Antennaweb

I really wanted to give him the bennefit of the doubt....but then I read this:

At the upper end of Home Theater systems is the Bose Lifestyle V-Class system, which is easy to install using the Bose onscreen easy to follow messages.

LMAO...what a joke

David, no point in answering robospam. Whenever there are 10 posts by a new user in the same 5 minutes of the first day, with 3-4 embedded images that do not appear, it's not real. Just click the report button and they disappear in under 24 hours.

Case in point: these disappeared while I was writing this reply!

thank you Roger, I didn't know that he's a robospam. I was answering everything from my BlackBerry (most of the time) and didn't even check who replied to my post

Those posts are sometimes hard to tell from real ones, as they contain phrases that seem relevant. But they are never in direct response to anyone's posts, they never quote anyone, nor even mention people by name. Not sure what they hope to gain. Maybe the idea is to plant nefarious code via the attached "jpg" files.
