    New shows for early 2011?

    I've seen at least one commercial for a new show. Is there a list anywhere of what's coming up - new or returns? I get in such a rut from leaving my dvr on autopilot that I sometimes forget to look for new shows.

    How to block remote control signals?

    I wasn't sure where to post this, but since it's the remote for my dvr, I'll post here. I have two DVRs - one Motorola from Comcast and one Panasonic. I recently started using a Motorola cable box for the Panasonic to get more channels. I have the dongle thingie hooked up and running the cable...

    Celebrity Apprentice / Bret Michaels

    Just curious if anyone knows how Celebrity Apprentice is filmed? Have all of the episodes already been shot (isn't Survivor done that way?)? I'm just wondering how Bret Michaels' illness will affect the show. I'm not trying to be morbid. I wish him a speedy recovery, but even so, having one of...

    Remote control and glass cabinet doors?

    I'm not sure this is the best category for this, but figured you guys are knowledgeable and would know the answer. I am thinking of rearranging my TV/DVR setup. I have an older but still decent teak audio cabinet I'm considering using. (Right now, all the components are on an old microwave...

    Comcast and NBC pay per view

    Comcast and NBC on Demand Thought this might be interesting, since this subject came up recently. I just found a reference to this on the Comcast support forum -http://www.nbcutransaction.com/pdfs/PublicInterestCommitments.pdf, which says in part (edited to change title to on demand, since...

    Why don't episodes of TV shows include the titles?

    (Not a major rant; just an annoyance) - They obviously have titles; at least on the on screen guides there are titles. Some are actually fairly clever titles. I tend to record shows and watch them at my leisure. Sometimes I'll discover a series halfway through the season, or even in a later...

    New channels mysteriously appear, but...

    there is nothing on them? This has happened probably 3-4 times since the 12th. My converter box is attached to a tv that I don't use much so usually just turn it on once or twice a day to see what's working. When I turn the box on, I get a message about finding a new channel. So out of curiosity...

    Pat yourselves on your back

    I joined this forum a few weeks ago when I was looking for info on the digital transition, mostly info on converter boxes. I found the info that I needed (thanks!) and found even more interesting people and conversations. I just wanted to say what a nice group this is, at least on the digital...

    So what will actually happen on the 12th?

    Will the TV stations stop transmitting analog at 00:01 that day or 23:59? IOW, will there be analog broadcasts on that Friday? I'm just curious when the people who haven't paid any attention will notice, and the uproar will begin :D. I'm also curious what people's thoughts are on how many...

    Zinwell 970 vs 950?

    I'm pretty nontechnical when it comes to converter boxes, but since I just finally got approved for my coupons (let the last ones expire) I figured it was time to start investigating. I've seen the Zinwell ZAT-970A mentioned several places, but then while researching that, saw the 950A...
