Hi there, enjoyed my trip to Vegas & CES; couldn't beat the weather, either - wish I had stayed a couple more days! I'm actually thinking about getting a "winter place" out there now, while the real estate is depressed - so I am ready when I retire in a few years...
(sorry I couldn't post this while out there, but I could NOT get on the internet AT ALL in my hotel; it was TOTALLY down in all the rooms, & most people could NOT get a connection in the lobby
As usual, I brought in my suitcase my DTV Pal+, a simple, (back-of-set) bowtie antenna & a coax extension. Was staying on the 6th floor@Royal Resort on the south side of the building - I was SO glad I brought the Pal+, because not only does that hotel NOT have $hit to watch on their 25 channels, but it was on an (OLD!) 25" Mits TV, with a sucky remote!
So I set it up, & ran a scan. I was able to pull all of these (digital) stations in:
3, 5, 8, 10, 13, 15, 17, 18, 19, 21, 23, 25, 27, 30, 31, 33, 39, 41, 43, 47 & 50
Interestingly, the ONLY station that was VERY touchy to pull in, was 3. (I assume since it's on RF2, my setup was NOT exactly optimal for such a signal
) But other than that one, every other one stayed locked in consistently! One little complaint; many of the stations don't put ANY kind of "intelligent" labels on their PSIP info &/or ANY prog guide info. However, it's VERY easy to add your own PSIP tags on the DP+!
I gotta say, you guys DO have quite a varied assortment of OTA programming, considering the size of your market. It was SO great to get things like Antenna TV (which we do NOT have back in my market), METV & others, I didn't connect the TV back to the hotel cable until I left!
(note to self: throw a coax A-B switch in the suitcase next year, in case I get another antique TV w/out A/V inputs in my hotel
)Now, a question I have for you Vegas guys
...it's my understanding that Univision 15 is in HD. However, when I tried to adjust the (picture) formatting on my DP+ on 15, it stayed locked on CROP, & would NOT let me change it to FULL (letterbox) - what might be, or is the reason for this happening? I had no problems changing it on the other HD stations.
