Not only that, shortly after takeoff the gear is raised in order to eliminate drag. Plus, he managed to cut the correct white wire in the bundle. Yep, lots of things wrong in the show, but that is...

My U.K. friend bought a Freeview USB tuner stick and records stuff on his Linux box (one of them anyway). Great for getting Doctor Who. :D

True. If the content is either 16:9, or 4:3, that would indeed be the way to go.

When I checked at 11 am this morning, 15-4 was 4:3, it was not 16:9. It was an old McHale's Navy episode.

Doesn't help those that do not have H.265 capable sets.

I didn't know that Germany was still SD via OTA. Ouch.

Why not call WISC engineering and ask them.

I seriously doubt that CBS is sourcing the game in 720p. Only Fox and ABC/ESPN do that. CBS and NBC source 1080i.

It is your TV setting. 15-4 is...

I've been told, on good authority, that tonight's episode is only ~18:39 in length. Ouch! CBS just plain out-and-out sucks. And that is being polite about it.

FYI, I love meat.

Who is going to be able to watch it? Current TVs/STBs can't deal with H.265. A new STB will be required.

They are working on ATSC 2.0, which is supposed to have H.265 and backward compatibility...

True

I forgot all about that.

We had the dumb FM stereo on our TV signals. It was either that, or nothing.

On my last trip to London, we didn't have time to tour thru Westminster Abbey....

While it is true that people are not buying the product because it isn't 5.1, but those who have 5.1 systems would certainly prefer that it be 5.1. I certainly do. While a show may not suffer, it...

Now I know why shows like Downton Abbey are only 2.0. IMHO, not mixing for 5.1 is just plain stupid.

The 2.0/5.1 switching actually sucks. Many a time the point of switching is at the wrong time,...

That would be another TV trick, since it takes longer than a year to build a ship of that size and complexity. Also, where would the employees come from to build such a ship. Yep, TV reality.
