Anyone else not able to pull in Fox KDSM (17) this weekend via antenna? I noticed it yesterday when it stated the channel wasn’t available. I rescanned channels and 17 doesn’t show up on the list at all anymore. My signals are nice and strong for abc, nbc, cbs, pbs, and 23. Fox is available through our ps Vue subscription so I know they are broadcasting.

I went to their site and there’s no word of this.

So if there is anything you need I may be able to make a contribution that way as well.

Depending on your need for equipment, AVS IA thread 'members' also get a nice discount over at Hawkeye Audio Video in Hiawatha. They have helped save me thousands of dollars and get a great setup. Speaking of which, you are also welcome to come see my room if you need ideas or want to hear/see something in action.
Thank You,
I am not worried about sound Isolation It is just me and my Wife. I am not going full bore like some have I am only doing Insulation and 5/8 drywall. Just got the speaker wire ran I guess it will be a 9.2 LOL so I have it set for 2 fronts, 1 center, 2 front subs, 2 side speakers, and 2 ceiling speakers. We just moved in this house in August-ish and I bought it because of the dedicated Theater room My wife keeps saying what is the big deal it's just a room to watch Tv in .......NO NO NO it is a Cinema like experience if I wanted just a room to watch TV in I think I would just watch up stairs on the 85 inch. Deewan I would be greatful to have a HT expert help I was going to go with in-wall but I heard the Klipchesh R series are rated bad on the AVS forums, I am off saturday if you wanted to stop over I think I have all the outlets soft wired looking a for a inexpensive 9.2 wall plate instead of having wires everywhere.
First I am getting a pool table but I have to take out a wall to get that in basement, then I have to finish the electrical so I can get the Dry wall guys to come in and then it will be on hold for a bit. Wife is having anxiety with my eagerness lol

The John Wick 3 day was a lot of fun. Man that is a lot of homicide for one day though! The cinematic body count has to be close to 500. Anyway thanks to Landon, Ryan and Robin for coming out and enjoying the day. And for those who haven't seen it, if you enjoyed either of the previous John Wick films, I think it's a safe bet you'll like this one too.

Really enjoyed Ryan's theater. That poor Vizio set really gives it's all trying to keep up with the sound system.

I saw fb posts that their tower was down for maintenance for a few days, possibly from a lightning strike. The only way to watch the channel is via cable.

It baffles me that they don't have better communication. It would take them like two minutes to post about the delivery method I bet at least half of their viewers use...

First of all, it's Sinclair Broadcast Group that we're talking about. Locally, the station is not allowed to make any such announcement until der furher in Baltimore says to make the announcement.

Secondly, that station went way downhill back in '05 when the Creative Services Director left.

You will be at Menards a lot... Always something that you need. My advice is to over buy, and then return what you don't use. Nothing like a late night work session only to be halted due to a missing part here or there. It won't save you many trips, but at least you should reduce times where you are missing something that you need to at least keep working.


Oh, and welcome by the way. I am over in Marion.

My only concerns would be that those lights aren't very bright. The recessed LED lights are 800 lumens, which is about the same as a 60 watt bulb, and the single bulb sconces are just 40 watt each. Do you have other lighting in the room?

I have 12 dimmable 100 watt halogen recessed lights and 6 dimmable 75 watt wall sconces, and there are times when I wish I still had more light. Sure, when watching a movie it doesn't matter, and nobody has ever said that it was dim in there, but being a room with dark-ish paint, and no windows, a few more lights would be nice.

Just food for thought. Everyone's rooms are different.

Keep the light cone in mind when choosing lights.


Nick brings up a good thought. but lumen isn't then only thing to consider...

Another thing to remember when thinking of lighting is the light cone. With traditional can lights, the cone of light is a more narrow and is directed more at the floor than side walls. LED lights do not operate the same way. In other words, light from a traditional "can" light in the ceiling that is located 4' from the side wall would have the majority of light hit only the floor. So while there is a lot of light output, it only lights up the ground leaving the walls and surround areas dark.

Some LED lights have a VERY large light cone. In my room with LED 6" light located 4' from a side wall throws light onto the side wall hitting the wall 10-12" from the ceiling. That makes the room appear a lot brighter when the walls and ground are both lit.

Long story short, when I was building my room I found a site that calculated the suggested number of lights, based on lumen output, that I would need in my room. The site suggested I needed six 6-inch lights of a certain lumen output. I ended up purchasing four LED lights with that broad light cone and my room is brighter than I had planned.

I am putting these on a dimmer, this will not be a socialize room only Movies, and football.
We were doing these light all throughout the basement.

Dewann did you have that website?

As far as not bright enough They gave my wife a headache in Home Depot looking at them lol

One thing to keep in mind is resale. If you ever intend to sell you may get some "crazy" person who wants to buy your home and turn your theater into a multi purpose, kids play room, craft room, who knows what. I shot myself in the foot a bit on my first theater build by putting plenty enough light for my theater purposes but we got a lot of comments when we went to sell about there being too little light in the room.

I am now along the line of thinking that I can control the light that's there if there's too much but it's much harder for me to add light after construction.

Hmm, how did such a big Raider fan end up in Cedar Rapids? Being in Des Moines for 16 years I've met plenty of Vikings & Packers fans and the occasional Chiefs fan. In my opinion though, this market is dominated by Bears fans (myself included).

Tim Brown and Jerry Rice. Yes.

And, as a matter of fact, I did a full weekend shoot with Rich Gannon and his family, showing the outreach and philanthropic activities they did during the off season. Really nice family.

I have no doubt he has a nice family but the more interesting people are the knuckleheads. Janikowski was a train wreck and he would have been there (all liquored up) during your time.

I was at the Raiders HQ when they drafted Janikowski. He was a train wreck, but he was automatic for many years.

It's interesting, though, with the Raiders' bad boy reputation, that era was a bunch of really good dudes. Napolean Kaufman was an ordained minister, Gannon was really nice. Jon Richie was a beast, and a Stanford grad, Tim Brown was super cool. Jerry Rice was okay.

Well to be fair, by this point Al Davis was being dragged around like he was in Weekend At Bernie's. If he would have had it together at this time I'm sure he would have continued his not so great drafting.

Absolutely false. He was still very active and relatively healthy at that point. He was on the practice field every day. Which is why Gruden left the first time.

I love my iPhone, but it will never replace my turntable. I've never seen Titanic OR XXXXXXXXX. Alexa is a stripper name.

Well It all started when I was 10 and I watched my first Raider game. I have always lived here well I lived in Marengo, but moved to Cedar Rapids I go to every KC game except this year I am going to The Home Opener Monday Broncos game and Vikings game in Minnesota I won't lie the real reason I followed the team was because of the Logo, I went to the Ravens game 2 years ago and went to the headquarters and got to meet Derek Carr he stopped us as we were walking out of the headquarters and flagged us over gave us autographs and asked us where we were from talked with us for about 15 min and other players had to either stop or go around him Both Amari Cooper and Jano drove about 50mph out of the Parking lot Cooper in his BMW and Jano in his Ferrari, hell jano kicked that sucker sideways I'm guessing it was the week they told him he was done lol Then I went to All the Raider images and spent about 800$ on Raider merch. went to the malls and met Lincoln Kennedy again and got his autograpgh, by the way I don't like fords but Carr's Ford Raptor all rhino lined was awesome.

Well now I'm confused. Based on the sheer volume of Dick Butkus nudes you have stockpiled on your NAS, I thought for SURE you were a football fan. Now I'm not so sure.
