I throwing a 125" scope format (via zoom) from 13' in a completely dark room and all white scenes can be very bright. I have 2000 on my lamp and still bright enough.

Thanks for the heads up. Windows Media Center 7 sees COZI (36.2) just fine (no guide listings yet), but it isn't seeing BUZZR (7.3). I could add it manually, but of course, no guide listings.

I scanned for additional channels in WMC7 and it found 14-1. If the guide doesn't show up soon, I'll use the other channel (51) guide in its place.

My street is purple even though I'm at one of the higher points in the neighborhood on the side of a hill (probably what is blocking the signal)
