And most of these Charlotte and surrounding counties will soon become Charter Cable if the Time Warner merger goes through. Except Rock Hill which may remain Comporium.

I think I heard WRAL and then WBTV were the first stations nationwide to begin broadcasting a digital signal. Back around 97 or 98 I think maybe.

The ePVision boxes are fine as an external tuner. Better than most. But their DVR function is indeed problematic. For DVR capability, I would definitely go with the DVR+ or TiVo Roamio. The current...

And I agree with the previous post that those 720p plasmas look better than today's overpriced LEDs. Especially for OTA antenna TV. I am so glad I got a Samsung 51 inch F4500 last year before they...

Those cheap iView type boxes have a few problematic issues. Mainly the channel numbers are strange and do not correspond. And apparently you often have to reboot. I would suggest the PHD-208 tuner...

That 4-bay antenna should be a good improvement. And I have found the Winegard LNA-100 inline amp to perform better than the others, as it has a low noise figure. I would try that one.

The iView and Homeworx boxes, and their various clones are about the cheapest, from about $34-$39. Even though you don't need the PVR capability.

As long as the junction box does not block the power injector, it should be fine. Or in some cases you may also use a distribution amp at the junction box.

I use an FM trap from Radioshack before the preamp to prevent interference with RF13. Otherwise the signal breaks up.
