Orlando, FL - BHN - Page 4

post #91 of 18580
Thanks Greg...I'll do that. Strange that it just started happening, though, after a few months of good performance. Also....in the evening, say after 8 pm or so...I get near-perfect reception. It's almost like a distribution point or amplifier comes on-line in the evening. But I'll call. Thanks.

Does anyone know what Adelphia's HD package entails? How many local channels it comes with? I live over by UCF and have Adelphia for my home (homeowners association decision, not mine) and am just wondering if Adelphia's is okay or I should I just install an antenna and OTA receiver?

Thanks.

Sorry if this is the wrong forum, but I rather help a local get HDTV Cheaply, and help him with the set-up. It can be a pain the first time.

Since I moved to Orlando, I use and like BHN. So... I have no need for my OTA HD reciever (Toshiba/DTV w/Antenna) and tired of looking at it.
Willing to sell for 1/2 the cost I paid for it (less then 1 year old).

I am located near UCF. You can email me at Luke(at)mail.ucf.edu

Thanks

I am about to get that new Pace Box from BH ..


any place in Orlando to purchase a DVI cable at a reasonable price ???
post #96 of 18580
Just picked up a DVI cable last night...looked at best buy and radio shack...both only carried the same Moster Cable version for $99...way more than I wanted to spend, but had to try it.

I too recently received the Pace box and just got my new Toshiba Cinema Series 57 inch delivered yesterday so couldn't wait to hook up the DVI and see the HD channels get even better, but I was disappointed with the results...switching back and forth from the component video input and the DVI input on the same HD channel resulted in little to no improvements in quality...is this possible??? Is it possible there is a setting I need to turn on in the tv or pace box or something??? If this is as good as DVI gets on a new projection set, I think I'll have to return the cable, because can't see spending $100 for nothing?!?!?!

Any thoughts?

PS
For those considering the DVI upgrade being offered by Toshiba...that purchase I'm happy with, the new 'Cinema Series' did seem to have an improved picture from the old 57H82 and the cabinet is much more sleeker looking.

From what I understand, DVI really shows an improved image with fixed pixel displays such as DLP, LCD, and plasma. A tube based standard RPTV usually will not show much, if any, improvement, which likely explains why you are not seeing much improvement in PQ. If you do decide to keep using the DVI, order a $20 cable online and return the $100 Monster Cable. There won't be any PQ difference since it is all digital.

Any suggestions on a site to find a $20 DVI cable?

For the past few days I have no audio from my Samsung TS-160 OTA receiver on WFTVHD channel 9.1. There is audio on the sub channel 9-2. Tried a rescan with no success. Anyone notice this problem?
post #101 of 18580
Thanks for info on where to buy the cables ..

I have Sony TV KV32HS500 -- and I am sure the picture will not improve to much but I was interested in the ability to switch the 4:3 to 16:9 without having to cycle thru different inputs on the TV -- rather let the cable box do it for me ..

Besides its something new and I am still learning about all this stuff -- and getting ready for that 49 in Sony I have my eye on

I bought my DVI cable here. I have shopped here several times and always
had good luck. Note I am not guarantying the lowest cost.

Any one having problems with the audio on channel 9-1? It has been out all week. Figured it was a problem at the station, now I'm starting to wonder. 9-2 audio works great (as do all other O-T-A channels). I am using a Samsung HDTV DirectTV receiver w/ additional antenna. Never had this problem.

Anyone have insight?

Thanks...

Just a follow up to my BHN signal-level problem....seems like that was, in fact, the problem. Unfortunately, I wasn't home when he got to the house, but he told my wife he "boosted the signal". Not sure how he would do that, but it seemed to have done the trick. BTW....he was shocked that I got the Pace 550 to work with my Samsung HLN over DVI....he didn't think that was possible.....Anyway, thanks for the advice, Greg.
post #105 of 18580
Can anyone recommend a decent OTA receiver for a low price? I only want an OTA tuner w/an antenna in my attic, not a DirectTV solution. I am thinking about getting a samsung t351 (I think i got that number right) on ebay but I read several reviews that said the failure rate of this model is abnormally high. Any suggestions would be great. I'm looking to spend $200 or less on the receiver (hence the decision to get a used one!)

Anyone getting CSI digital? My off the air receiver is getting a full strength signal, but no video or sound. The non digital on channel six is ok. The dang thing quit about 15 minutes into the program. Also they lost their second channel with the weather data.
post #107 of 18580
Same thing happened here. I thought it was me and my antenna from the winds we have had the last few days. Guess it was something else.
post #108 of 18580
I lost CSI mid broadcast also.
post #109 of 18580
That is really strange, becuase I had no problem last night at all, not even one break up which is unsual for KMG
post #110 of 18580
RE CSI

Suspect a PSIP problem. No KMG picture from my DST-3000, but my MDP-100 PC card that is connected to same OTA antenna was receiving picture just fine. DST-3000 is really picky about PSIP whereas MDP-100 is fairly tolerant. Problem had not been fixed when I went to bed last night. Haven't checked this morning.

I am using a Samsung TS-160 receiver and have had no audio on channel 9.1 and channel 27.1 for the past week. Looks like a PSIP problem that is effecting TS-160 receivers.

Re: Channel 9-1 Audio MISSING?

No problem with audio on 9-1 or 9-2 with either DST-3000 or MDP-100 using OTA.
post #113 of 18580
Hello,

Are any of you successfully using the Terk Antenna that clips onto your Satellite Dish for pulling in OTA HDTV?

THank you,
Jeff in east Orlando
post #114 of 18580
No audio on my TS-160 on 9-1 or 27-1. The DTC-100 works fine.......
Maybe someone has a contact at WFTV. It seems to be a Samsung problem. I wonder if it affects other Samsung models?
post #115 of 18580
For the audio issue you might check to make sure you are not stuck on some SAP channel. I had this happen a couple of time on my Zenith. I would go select the other audio channel and all would be well again. Probably the PSIP, but it's something to look into while you wait...
post #116 of 18580
Anyone have a solution for OTA in the Heathrow/Lake Mary Area. Trying to decide what to use with the DirectV reciever. Whether indoor antenna or something in the attic. any sugestions from anybody would be apprciated.
post #117 of 18580
Yesterday the 9-1 audio returned in Dolby 5.1 on the Samsung TS-160 receiver. Today the channel 27-1 audio is back also. I had e-mailed the engineer at WFTV so maybe he did something...........
post #118 of 18580
I would like to congratulate WKMG and WFTV for being fine affiliates and not passing network programming.

Your service (monopoly) is greatly appreciated.

As I read posts by TW customers who have HD DVR's up and running and as I count down the days to the arrival of my HD TiVo, I'm wondering if Greg (or anybody else for that matter) can provide an update on the status of these HD DVR boxes for Bright House customers in Central Florida. Any info, definitive or speculative will be most appreciated.

Thanks.

To my knowledge, there are no cable operators who have the S/A 8000 deployed using Pioneer's Passport software. We've encounters some bugs in testings, but they're getting resolved.

We haven't scheduled an exact date yet, because software fixes are impossible to predict. Shouldn't be too much longer though.
