Agreed, the last minute date change is a bad misstep. Those who aren't ready in Feb, but will be ready in June are likely very few in number. Chances are if you are not going to be ready next week, you also won't be ready in June.
I recommend the Dish Network DTV PAL DVR as a good standalone HD tuner with DVR built in.
There are a lot of Coupon Eligible DTV tuners out there, but they can't output in HD (or else they lose their coupon eligibility). Look over in the HDTV hardware and recorders forums.
That is one thing that impresses me about the Disney Channel. They actually air their A-List movies frequently. Cars, Monsters, Incredibles, etc.. I even get to record their classics. Just in the past few weeks, I got Aristiocats and The Rescuers. I just have to remember to scan through the guide every week or so.
Even though Hagerstown is in the DC DMA, its really too far out for anyone in the DC area to receive. I've never been able to receive a signal from there and I'm on Mont county which is NW of DC, so I'm closer than most.
I'll correct the WNVT data.
PS. I'll give $100 imaginary dollars to whoever can figure out how I can insert a Carriage Return inside of a cell in these vBulletin tables.
I'm going to put together a table for the first post that will cover the analog cut off. I figured I'd put it here for critical comments before I paste it over to there. Plus I think that these tables are cool and I intend to update the grids on the first post with these tables eventually.
