Muse:
I used to use MPEG2REPAIR to concatenate segmented .ts files. I haven't used it in a long time so I don't know if it's compatible with current OSs or even available. The files I generally used...

Have you tried for their repeater on RF 18 from their old analog location east of the Hudson? If your UHF antenna is very directional you might have to repoint it. WNYT also has repeaters elsewhere...

At a command prompt, REN <dir>\*.TP *.TS where <dir> is the directory containing .TP files, should do it.

QAM isn't kaput. That's the modulation used by all U.S. cable companies, not counting IPTV. But clear (unencrypted) QAM might be. That's up to TWC's new owner, Charter, which is changing its name to...

What make/model and what channels could/couldn't you get? I'm generally not a fan of amplifiers on indoor antennas. They have their uses such as overcoming cable and splitter losses but you're...

As rdvegas noted, the signals you're trying to receive are plenty strong enough for an outdoor antenna. Maybe even for an indoor one, although if you have stucco walls they're pretty good...

That should work if you don't care about getting WRGB (CBS) on 6. And you might not if you're happy with the 720p version of it on 45.3 (RF 43). You'll only lose this TV (6.2) and Comet (6.3) which...

Small panel antennas aren't well suited to receiving VHF channels and WXXA (Fox) on channel 7 could be a challlenge. WRGB on 6 would be even more difficult but it's also available on WCWN's carrier...

Are you sure it's wrong? If the female PATA connector is the size that fits a 5.25" PATA drive then it will also fit the male connector on the motherboard. Both PATA and SATA cables are normally...

If TWC doesn't transmit virtual channel numbers I don't think you can. Even if they do you'd have to punch 2 or 3 digits and a decimal, the same as you would for OTA channels. If the TV lets you...

6-1, 6-2 and 6-3 are all part of one transmission so you should get all of them equally well. However, on most TVs you'll need to rescan to pick up any changes.
