Yeah, I discovered that. I don't know why anybody would want to pay for stereo in 480i.

Wonder why they don't offer the service since they're broadcasting it anyway.

Apparently they're part of KUPX, channel 16. They come up as Showtime - 16.90; Starz! - 16.95; & Airbox - 16.96. All of them are scrambled channels.

30 years is plenty of time for oxidization and other forms of corrosion to build up. It would not be a bad idea to replace it.

Agreed 100%

Marketing. Plus, many people have the idea that if it costs more it's better.

Just like with videotapes -- Betamax was superior, but VHS was, by far, the most popular.

All you have to do is find out the resistance of the particular wire in use. You double that to get the loop resistance (you know, down and back). Using a regular DMM (Digital Multimeter), measure...

Drop amps such as the CM 3414 and most others can be powered remotely, thus allowing them to be placed outdoors (preferably in an enclosure of some sort) and powered from within the house.

If the source were HD, then ZeeVee definitely would be the way to go. For an SD camera, however, it is a bit of overkill.

Just a modulator and taps (or splitter system) are all that is needed. I don't know if the channel 3/4 ones have sufficient output to feed more than 1 TV set, especially at a distance. Other...

Are the 2 HDMI outputs on the 838 created by a splitter, or does it have an internal matrix switcher?
