WBTV big reveal could come tomorrow or most likely by Monday. No advance publicity so far but hopefully a nice upgrade. I believe the February ratings period begins tomorrow.

^^WSOC is still top rated in all time periods except noon. And the noon news is high rated on WBTV because it is sandwiched between the Price is Right and Young and the Restless. Although WBTV seems...

In a few months, the SEK-3000 Evo Kit for 2015 should be released. So I would wait and see what upgrades that may offer. As the SEK-2000 from 2014 doesn't seem to offer any significant changes or...

I would get a F4500 or F5300 Samsung plasma if they are still available. Both are very nice and were reasonably priced.

I wonder if the DB8e and the add-on VHF dipole would work, especially with each side pointed the different directions? Perhaps a sweet spot in between, or possibly the Clearstream 4V. And perhaps a...

Justice Network is now live on 36.2. With a 16x9 aspect from WCNC but looks like picture may be transmitted as 4x3 as it looks zoomed in.

Before the change, WBTV apparently received Grit transmitted in 16x9 from Katz. Then broadcast it on 3.3 with a 4x3 aspect ratio. Now, Katz has changed Grit to 4x3 and is still transmitted by WBTV in...

Just noticed there is no normal Component video input with the red, blue, green connectors. Looks like some sort of adapter is required. Where can you order this adapter?

You may be correct, as my November 2014 F8500 interface appears identical to the SEK-1000 interface from 2013. So I guess the question is, at this point, should I wait for the SEK-3000 Evo Kit before...
