I said that they were obsolete, not that they were unused. People use obsolete technology all the time. I continue to use ffdshow-tryout, for instance, as LAV doesn't have every feature I want.

What's really sad is that they didn't even stop there. After they discovered the iPod, they then had to plug some current AC hit that the victim was playing on it.

Yes, it isn't recommended, which is why MediaSonic removed it. You can't set the clock or see channel names on most cable systems, as they don't provide PSIP. This makes it impossible to perform...

This is wrong: the Homeworx and iView have the same hardware, and both of them can tune QAM. The difference is that the latest Homeworx firmware disables QAM support. If you want to be able to tune...

Do we even know for sure that the first episode in October will be the pilot, or could it be an altered premiere episode?

Buy on eBay from a seller with pictures of the actual item you will receive (not stock photos), so you can check the back to see if it has the switch. This is always my strategy when I want to get a...

They abandoned the book stuff before season 1 ended. We're in completely different territory now, although a book-style ending would be a mercy for this show right about now.

I'm pretty sure that's not how people look at conducting a census. You take a census to determine how large a given population is, and if people don't "stand up" to get counted, then you simply don't...

You can still get them, if you want one, just as you can get the DTVPal (although the latter is rarer, due to being older).
