Hey Fred......I'm still ALIVE!!!!!
Thanks for checking in on me. I am getting fat on popcorn, but that is not the reason why I have been MIA. Just been very, very busy with work, lots of long hours and things going on professionally and also been very busy with other projects on the home front. All is well, just busy with not much time or energy left to do much of anything. There were many times that I sat in the recliner to start surfing AVS just to fall asleep with the computer in my lap. I even fell asleep while posting and when I woke up there was a bazillion "k's" in the posting window.
This past weekend the RTROSE household did have a milestone event. My oldest son graduated from high school, we had the ceremony on Saturday and his open house yesterday. Needless to say I'm a proud papa. He is now Purdue bound in the fall.
Congrats Caleb, and the Class of 2013! I'm very proud of you! Love you son!
Very little to report on the HT front. Mrs RTROSE used her window film skills to apply some tint to the lone window in the kitchenette to knock down the ambient light spilling into the theater. We have discovered that the popcorn machine light is distracting so we are on the hunt for some drapes for the doorway from the kitchenette to the theater.
After 8-9 years as a DISH customer, I am switching to ATT Uverse. I have been happy with DISH, but to save on my bill have been reducing my package the last couple of years to stay within a certain price point, plus the second TV supported by the DISH receivers are not HD. With Uverse all the TV's will be HD plus the whole house DVR function. We are also getting rid of the landline phone, going with just cellular and I am getting the Uverse internet and dropping my DSL service. I am going from 3 Mbps to 18 Mbps so I'm very happy about that. More channels, HD to every TV and I'm lowing my bill(s) by about 70 bucks to boot.
I do have a question. I have been running my OTA through my DISH receivers. Does the ATT box have the same feature? My TV's are good as they have internal tuners, but obviously my theater (PJ) does not. If the ATT box does not have that feature, what is a good (and relatively) inexpensive OTA tuner?
