Thanks ADTech. I can fix that. I wonder how much it will matter, though. I did a bunch of height scenarios on TVFool, it looks like optimum height for LOS of all channels it's 45-50 feet. But even...

Thanks for your reply. It's #28 (http://www.avsforum.com/forum/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=28) in the Yagi list. It should be for channels 7-13.

Disk Integrity Checking Software?

It looks like this section is mostly about movie titles as software, instead of computer software, but I wasn't sure where else to post this. I buy a fair amount of pre-owned movies and music and on...

I bought an HP Envy 360 and all the specs are good, but I don't know if I can get over the display. I don't like that the top is brighter than the bottom. For example, if there is a solid color on...

I think the plastic case is probably fine, but it just needs more care in not dropping it. The biggest flaw with my Gateway NV54 is the power button is on the end of the hinge. A power button needs...

Thank you for taking the time to respond. I didn't realize the 840M was on par with the HD5500. But it does make sense that unless I needed to use every MB of RAM for the system, would I ever need...

As long as your TV is on the same network shouldn't it be found? As far as a LAN adapter, can't you just connect an Ethernet cable from the TV to the router?

Didn't customers go through a similar purchase with Oz and the 3D disc when that released? How can Disney be so blind to customer demand?

You can always try a cleaning disc, too. I have a Maxell disc that's BDP compatible. You won't have to try to access the laser to clean it, either.

I spent the afternoon transferring the reflector and element to a PVC mast and boom. I don't have a base for it yet, but at least I'll have an outdoor ready antenna.

If I used a Y10-7-13 antenna, would I still need a UHF antenna for channels above 13? I can probably replace the wood parts to something for outdoor durability.
