Really, now that I seem to be getting along better with the icefilms.info listing site that links to 2Shared and Megauploads and running the results in Linux rather than WMP9 and 2000. The same goes for things like Torchwood that landed from the CBC to pay TV up here. I can't stream without stuttervision, so waiting for a download is worth it...someone else does the work so no commercials.
I only have the one evening now where there is a three-way conflict so now I just download "The Big Bang Theory". There was a two night conflict but CBS cancelled Ghost Whisperer and Numbers and I refuse to watch their new Friday line-up [though the last I heard Flashpoint remains the mid-season second bench player]. So at this point buying a Fusion doesn't make economic sense to me. It did at one point when our dollar soared above the US but now its slightly below. It might still be worth it if DC is still selling MDP-130s at the current price point to get one or two as spares, which I might do in the middle of 2011.
I still say it depends a lot on the antenna, the results you get and a mix of Tropo/humidity.
What's the big deal with DVI anyhow? both my nVidia based cards have it and I hadn't noticed any difference in the desktop and could you really tell [be honest] on a TV show at full screen?
I don't have the room yet to try one monitor with DVI from the 9600 or 8600 GTS cards and the VGA out from the 130s to another or even try to the same one. I'm mainly concentrating on keeping the roof over my head right now.
