Glad to see WBIN bite the dust. Hope someone picks up AntennaTV in Boston. Grit too. I guess Channel 7 will be a CW station with This and a half-a$$ed local news station. Still OK with me.

Thanks for posting this. Performance as in app not crashing, buffering, etc. For instance, Newsmax buffers on my DVR+ but not on my other devices.

so far, so good up here in Danville New Hampshire. TiVo still lists To Be Announced in the guide despite the fact that the WHDH listings are current. I can live with that.

Get a DB8 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/122036766918?lpid=82&chn=ps&ul_noapp=true). Do not install the reflectors. Put it in the attic. Point it north or south. You will be happy.
