    CM-4228HD Vs. Solid Signal Xtreme Signal HDB8X

    I am currently using an older, legacy Channel Master 4228HD in the attic above my attached garage. To keep my wife happy, I want to keep the antenna out of site. Most of the channels come in well, but as is often the case, it is a compromise. If I adjust the antenna for some channels, other...

    Television Choices While Mobile

    Most of us enjoy the newer digital TV standard and don't miss analog. The one feature that I do miss is the ability to listen to TV audio. I had the Auto Talk converter in my vehicles and it worked great. I know that the current ATSC standard does not allow reception while mobile. I also...

    Christmas is still several months away, but I am still wondering what the smallest DTVs are these days? Is anybody making a handheld portable TV?

    Listening To Local Television News [/U]While In Motion[/U] While Traveling

    I am something of a news junkie. While I don't make a lot of road trips, I do make some from time to time. I would love to be able to listen to local television news broadcasts, while in motion, when traveling across the United States. In the past, I had a device (Auto Talk) that connected to...

    Accessing Roku Remotely Through SlingBox

    Is there any content on Roku that can't be accessed directly on a PC, smartphone, or tablet? Say, for example, you had a Roku 3 at home and a SlingBox PRO HD with an extra unused port, would there be any reason to connect the Roku to the SlingBox PRO HD? One thing that came to my mind would be...

    ATSC Tuners With HDMI Ports

    I have a few of the legacy converter boxes. Specifically, several of the Zenith DTT901s and a couple of the DISH Network DTV Pals. Anyway, I am staring to look around for what new boxes are available that include an HDMI port. What are some of my better choices? I know when the earlier...

    Audiovox MobileTV Receiver

    I picked up an Audiovox MobileTV Receiver and did some testing with it in my area. It is more sensitive than the RCA 8” Mobile TV DMT580DU Tablet, but not as sensitive as the Elgato EyeTV Mobile TV Tuner. It is quite likely that I will be returning this, but it has been interesting to try it out.

    Dallas On TNT In 2014

    I cut back our DISH package to save to money. I am considering cancelling completely, but my wife loves recording an over the air soap opera daily. The DISH 722k handles that fine, but so would a DVR that receives over the air signal. Now, the sticking point seems to be that a new Dallas...

    Question: Mobile DTV Subscription Fees

    Has anybody read anything lately about subscription fees for Mobile DTV? As slow as ATSC-M/H has been to take off, I think any sort of fees might scare off the few of us that are interested in it. Coincidentally, I did order an RCA Mobile TV Tablet DDA850R for Christmas for my wife. Granted...
