My main question is I want to compare in home UHF broadcasting the movies to the main room, vs using a wifi network to in-home broadcast old media (vs your third choice of updating the collection)
At home, I heard point to point broadcasters rely on line of sight and cost $100 for a sender receiver pair, and if there are wall and floors, it's a poor picture.
I tried to find the eBay price of a UHF home strength broadcaster. (No one is selling. I assume it's $500 or more) I bought one for $20 in 2005. And yes, all our TVs have the Analog/Digital VHF/UHF reception ability.
I'm afraid of UHF interference from the air. Any website to find a clear channel of UHF at my address?
We also have a home network. I see dad's 4k media player on my Xbox One and PS3 options, and he sees my players on his Sony 4K/Blu Ray/internet movie player. Is there any way to get my Downstairs analog media center recognized by both rooms?
As fpmor re-collecting them. .
I recently went through our VHS and Beta collections, and organized into sell as masters, sell as blanks, and transfer to DVD-R ASAP. We compared our "maybe transfer" list to things existing on BD, Dish, or web movie services. If it's $10 a copy it less new, we'll get it when we get it.
Also, if my Beta breaks down, I should buy a beta just to transfer irreplaceable old media vs having Legacy Box do it. Some is home movies, others are rare TV and movie moments.
I tried to look for information on Legacy Box's policy about whether they give you TV recorded material, or whether they delete it on their hard drives before they give it to you. Rush Limbaugh's radio ads are unclear about what happens with copyrighted materials. He only talks about home movies.
When I get a beta, I should just use it to transfer and sell it back before it breaks.
Legacy Box price for 10 beta tapes costs $300. Might as well buy a Super Beta Hifi at this point, and prioritize Beta transfer, and sell it back before that breaks too.
