I have to admit I'm impressed by what they can do with a low bit rate. Comparing WRGB on 6.1 with 45.3 on a 1280x720 monitor, I really don't see any difference. I might on a higher res monitor. Of...

Gracepoint was a remake of the first season of the British series Broadchurch with a different cast, except for David Tennant. Also, Broadchurch lacked Gracepoint's what-really-happened twist at the...

The EIT listings are back, for what it's worth. Co-owned WRGB and WCWN are best at 3 days of guides. The rest have from a few hours to a day. Pitiful.

Since several stations' listings disappeared...

That seems to be true of all of them except WXXA and WMHT. I don't get WYPX or the 3ABN station well enough to tell.

Pardon me for responding to a topic I know nothing about (doesn't seem related to CW_EPG) but if you're talking about the Hauppauge 1212 HD PVR you'll probably get more help in that thread. A quick...

I'd have a higher opinion of the channel if they called it "Laugh." Advertising a comedy as being a "laff riot" pretty much guarantees that it will not be funny at all. I expect the channel will be...

There is a cost to adding more subchannels and I don't mean the cost to acquire broadcast rights. In our ATSC/8VSB system, all of the subchannels, data streams,error correction, etc. share a total...

With an indoor antenna, presumably only a few feet from the TV, your only hope that a preamp will help is if its noise figure is lower than the TV tuner's. Since TV manufacturers never post that...

I'm impressed that you get 14 at all. Most people in the area can't. It's not LOS on your TV Fool radar plot.


Move to Windham. Or try aiming the antenna directly at 14 and hope the other...

You could mount the antenna without the J-mount at all, replacing it with a suitable length and diameter pipe or dowel mounted in a Christmas tree stand. Even PVC pipe could work although it might be...

For my attic system in NY I'm using the ch. 6 folded dipole for VHF (6,7, 12 and 13) and the bowtie for UHF (26, 34 and 43). They're coupled with a cheap UVSJ, the kind that used to be included with...

ION is on channel 50 (UHF). You said elsewhere that to get that you lose WNYA, which is on ch. 13 (high VHF). Can you still get WTEN (26), WMHT (34) and WCWN (43)? Those are actual channels; they'll...
