Hello Twin Cities members. I am in the market for an HDMI switch. Are all of them created equally? Should I buy locally or online? If I buy locally, where are some of the better retailers these days...

Interesting. I tried on my Tivo OTA Mini a bit ago and I was getting QVC. A couple of minutes after that and it wouldn't display anything on 43-7. In its defense, the wife is watching something on...

That is a great point. Thank you for pointing that out. If I recall correctly, VHF High is preferred over VHF Low or it least it was in the past. Also, I seem to recall that adjacent channels were...

That is good to know. The reason I ask is because I am considering another Slingbox. It looks like both the Slingbox 500 and the Slingbox M2 are available. For the life of me, I can't really tell...

Slingbox

I tried this at work today and I Still get the same message. I tried it at my public library tonight and it connected just fine. I suspect that my work might be doing port blocking.

Monsoon Vulkano As A Replacement For My Slingbox PRO-HD

So, I re-scanned this afternoon. After it finished, it said that three new channels were found. They were:

2-2

2-5

43-6

43-6 comes in fine. I am not sure why it listed it as new, but...

That is interesting. I would think that since I am getting 2-3, I should get 2-2, as well. I will have to check the TiVo website and see if I can somehow add it. The other interesting thing is...
