Anybody else having audio dropouts on the Sugar bowl? Maybe it is my dishwasher causing it?
post #212 of 4506
my Audio is fine over Comcast. I just wish the locals would get 5.1. I am surprized that WJXX-DT got it working tonight after the trouble last night.

We just lost the feed on HD in the LSU game. Anyone else having problems?
post #214 of 4506
Its gone for me as well.
post #215 of 4506
I wonder if WJXX-DT will ever get it right. This is really sad they can't do it right. Thank goodness they are not doing the Super Bowl.

It was just switched back on at the start of the 4th quarter.

Anybody see a drop in signal strength on abc and nbc?
I am reduced to a 18 on NBC which is not even close to watchable, normally I have in the high 50s/low 60s.
thanks jamie

I switched from Directv (160) to Comcast today. The pix on INHD is terrific. I don't think HBO HD is quite as good, but the main reason was to stop having to deal with the antenna. Putting the 160 and antenna on ebay. I'll get $25 off each month for the next 18 mos for "trading in" satellite for comcast.

Update. Pixs look very watchable on non-hd digital channels. The analog channels looks as expected, terrible. Overall, the switch from Directv to Comcast is a positive. Their are pros and cons, but the ease of transition for the local channels to be in hd is the kicker.

how terrible is terrible on non-hd? is it than non-hd on direc-tv?
post #222 of 4506
Here's my take...I've adjusted the colors on my DLP & feel that Directv and Comcast HD's are comparable. The Comcast digital (non-hd) channels are better than Directv's, but the digital Directv channels are better than the analog Comcast channels. There are a lot of analog channels on Comcast (represented 2 - 76) that I unfortunately enjoy. Important channels within these that aren't also offered within the HD or Digital channels (120 - 883) are WJXT - local channel 4; WB; WAWS - FOX; Disney; FX; news channels; espn 2 and I could go on and on.

But, it all came down to wanting local channels in HD without the hassle of an antenna.

Anyone have some idea as to when we might get PBS-HD?Thanks for any info.
post #224 of 4506
i thought 7.1 was the hd channel, but just not broadcasting in 1080i/720p
post #225 of 4506
7-1 is one of four digital channels; I seem to remember they either don't have the HD equipment yet or it was going to take a while to get it working.

Is there any problem getting Jacksonville HD in St. Augustine?
post #227 of 4506
I live in ST.Augustine and can get all the Jacksonville digital stations with a large antenna on a 30ft mast with booster.
post #228 of 4506
I live off of CR 210 (a little north of St. Augustine) and pick up all digital stations with a medium size antenna in my attic. Go to antennaweb.org and type in the information on your location and it will give you the recommended type of antenna and where to aim it.
post #229 of 4506
Great.
Are cable companies coming out with HD also in the area?
post #230 of 4506
Time Warner has it in ST.Augustine.

Hey, I am moving to JAX and will probably have to go from Direct tv to Comcast, since I will be renting. How did you get the discount- turning in the Direct tv to cable?
Is HDTV and digital available in all of JAX with Comcast?
Is there anyway to get FOx sports world soccer broadcasts? English Premier League pay per view?
Sorry for all the questions! Help!

Rob,

Hd and digital are available from Comcast all over Jax. I have Directv and antenna, but from what I understand it is available all over. As far as the soccer stuff goes, I am not sure about what Comcast offers. You may want to check their website. May a soccer fan with Comcast can answer that for you.
post #233 of 4506
Does Comcast also do DSL?
post #234 of 4506
Comcast does two way broadband cable. Very impressive speed. Only problem is the rate hike to $59/month unless you have at least basic cable TV service. With TV service it is $43/month.
post #235 of 4506
Why do we get HD signal (like today's AFC Championship game) but no DD sound ? I can 5.1 from HBO but have yet to get any 5.1 sound from any HD network games/sports. Recall others mentioning 5.1 sound on games but I have yet to experience such with Comcast ?
post #236 of 4506
None of our Networks (Locally) have committed the funds for DD5.1 and have not announced any plans for the future.

Sorry but that is the answer - ECONOMICS
post #237 of 4506
raytracer, I saw that you posted in the AFC championship thread and indicated that you had received 5.1 from CBS before. I am not sure what you were watching but I and others here (ask Jerry) that we here in Jax do not have any affiliates with 5.1 DD -- really sucks, but it is what it is.
post #238 of 4506
Thanks for whomever posted antennaweb.org. I am considering making the jump to HDTV locally here in Jacksonville. As a DirecTV user (primarily for NFL Sunday Ticket), I'll have to go the antenna route to pick up the local stations.

Other than the numerous complaints I see on here for ABC, how are the other local NBC, CBS, FOX, and WB stations in regards to HDTV broadcasts?

The website antennaweb.org stated I was 8 miles away from each of the stations. Is that pretty good?

Can anyone recommend a business in good, reputable business in town that would install and calibrate, etc, a required antenna once I have an HDTV and the necessary hardware?

Thanks for all your help.
post #239 of 4506
Phod,
I live in Arlington, 8 miles from the stations as well. I have been using Radioshack indoor antennas and picking up strong signals for all stations except WB.
Have you considered Directv's $399 HDTV offer which includes professional installation ?
post #240 of 4506
Don't know why anyone would pay to watch soccer, but yes Comcast has it. Regarding discount, I saw it on a billboard and called 800-comcast. They took one receiver and the dish after installation of the cable. The installer asked if he should take the Samsung TS160, I said, "uh no!". Sold it on ebay for $450. The $400 discount is for the next 16 mos w/$25 off per month.
