Yes, I get that...kind of an ironic catch-22 from the days we dealt with analog, eh?

Just to recap, I didn't have much luck with shifting the antenna side to side (within about a 3 ft range). If anything, the original location was evidently the sweet spot, altogether. By moving it...

I'll give your tips a try...thanks!

So the vhf elements part of the antenna can still have some function, as far as multipath effects? That's pretty clever!

I am in McKinney, and my antenna is just a simple indoor job (Terk) + amplifier. So I already know people are going to say I shouldn't rightly be expecting any legitimate reception that far out. I...

Yes, I have noted the time being off, as well. Throws off my OTA dvr by that amount when recording shows.

I guess I will have to deal with the multipath at my location. It's a shame that once I find a decent location and direction that gets a healthy signal, that configuration doesn't seem to stay that...

I don't know what it is, but seems like it is a whole lot more difficult to "receive" KDFW than KXAS. The latter is what I would describe as "solid as a rock"...comes in stronger than KDFW,...

Can anybody tell me if KDFW broadcast strength is oddly fickle, just by nature? Sometimes they are pegging the meter, sometimes they are just average, sometimes they are just barely getting over the...

Summer time weather...unless you explicitly keep your room at sub-70 deg temp, the fan is going to run hard once the cpu is hard at work. It's probably been like that in the initial model design for...

WOW!...this movie is quite an experience! I had read some things that made me think I wasn't going to enjoy it, but WOW did it deliver big. Nolan and Zimmer are such a great combo for movie making.

I don't recall ever once seeing a promo on tv about it. What happened, there?

Yes, it certainly did deliver on mind-bender twists, despite the time travel reveal! I guess that detail has to be part of the marketing theme to "sell it". On one level, you need to have this as a...

Will Deckard be getting into any fisticuffs with any replicants, or just using harsh language, at this point?

I don't need to be examined or vetted by you, just because I'm not into Besson. I simply gave my opinion that Besson isn't really my fave, and 5th Element is kinda silly.

Ah yes, I've seen it, then. That movie was ages ago, right? I thought it was alright. Honestly, I thought it was just a remake of "Gloria" (from the 80's)...at the least, a very similar story.

Never heard of "Leon".

I just felt Lucy devolved into campiness in the same way that 5th Element did. Didn't he make some sort of space-prison movie, too? Same deal...neat concept that...
