My HTPC is running Win 7 Pro. Verizon specifies port 465 for SMTP with SSL but 587 might work. I'll try it when I have time. Some references say 465 should be used for SSL/TLS and 587 for...

The new version does work for sending email, but only if I do not check "Require TLS." I first tried it with:

SMTP Mail Host: smtp.verizon.net

Cable companies are allowed to encrypt locals now after meeting some requirements and I've read that Cox is well on its way to doing that. So don't count on clear QAM locals whether you're paying for...

On the OTA feed LWN is black, no audio. The subchannel is still there (makes sense if they're planning to put something else on it) using about 2 Mbps. There's about a day's worth of PSIP guide,...

Yes they do. I watched WCWN in TSReader Lite for a few minutes and the bit rates of the 3 subchannels varied with the content. With "Pay It Forward" on WCWN, "Firefox" on Grit and bullriding on WRGB,...

I have to admit I'm impressed by what they can do with a low bit rate. Comparing WRGB on 6.1 with 45.3 on a 1280x720 monitor, I really don't see any difference. I might on a higher res monitor. Of...

The EIT listings are back, for what it's worth. Co-owned WRGB and WCWN are best at 3 days of guides. The rest have from a few hours to a day. Pitiful.

Since several stations' listings disappeared...

That seems to be true of all of them except WXXA and WMHT. I don't get WYPX or the 3ABN station well enough to tell.

I'd have a higher opinion of the channel if they called it "Laugh." Advertising a comedy as being a "laff riot" pretty much guarantees that it will not be funny at all. I expect the channel will be...

I'm impressed that you get 14 at all. Most people in the area can't. It's not LOS on your TV Fool radar plot.
