Do OTA Antennas need to be mounted high? by Metspitzer
I would like to try one, but I really don't want to have to put up a mast. The location I would like to try is lower than the gutters on the house. I would like to put it on a pole that my satellite dish was mounted on.

Controlling a video player with a smart phone. by Metspitzer
Before I even try, I would like to find out the answer to one question to make it worth while. This app is supposed to be able to control the WDTV player with an Iphone. The feature that would make it worth trying is if you can use the keyboard on the Iphone instead of hunting and pecking with...

U-verse by Metspitzer
I was told by a Charter install guy that Charter will soon require a box for every TV set. I don't watch much TV and I really do dislike having to have two remotes for TV. I know a universal remote will change stations, but it doesn't switch the HDMI choices so I still have to have two remotes. ...

Digital clocks by [email protected]
I have a digital clock, actually, alarm clock, sitting in the entertainment cabinet that my TV sits on. It's behind a textured glass door, and I use it because it has big red numbers and I can see it. My cable box also sits in the cabinet and it's difficult to see the digital readout because of the...

Combining antennas using a splitter by Bill Gill
In the OTA antenna thread I mentioned that I wanted to get a UHF antenna to receive channel 35 from an out of town station and hook it up through a reversed splitter to the feed from my current antenna which receives the primary (ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, PBS) from the local stations. I was told that...

OLED UHDTV anyone? by UCLAN[_3_]
Sounds good to me. "LG continues to make OLED statements with curved and Ultra HD OLED displays." "The highlight promises to be what LG calls the largest curved OLED Ultra HD set, which at 77 inches also displays Ultra HD 3D. That display and new 55-inch and 65-inch curved OLED Ultra HD models...

Do new OTA antenna(s/e) improve over time? by Ant
Like did they improve at all from last year, or are they mostly the same? How about since analog days? This is assuming those indoor and outdoor types. Thank you in advance. :) -- Quote of the Week: "Even the sharpest ear cannot hear an ant singing." --Sudanese /\___/\ Ant(Dude) @...

Electronics question by [email protected]
The other day, my wife managed to run her cell phone, (a simple Jitterbug flip phone I got her so she has a phone on her when she goes out) through the washing machine while washing her pocketbook. She gave it to me to look at and of course it wasn't working. I took the battery out of it and let it...

New Electronics question by [email protected]
Sorry if there's a duplicate post. I originally called this "Electronics question" and it found it's way into a two month old post I did back in September. The other day, my wife managed to run her cell phone, (a simple Jitterbug flip phone I got her so she has a phone on her when she goes out)...

Question about a phone charger by [email protected]
Again, not HDTV but electronics. I bought a second Jitterbug cell phone to keep in my car so I always have one. Unlike most people who have a cell, I often forget mine when I leave the house. Chalk that up to getting old. The A/C adapter that came with the phone is rated at an output of 4.5...

HDTVs with RCA inputs? by Patty Winter
I have a several-year-old 32" (or thereabouts) Sharp HDTV that has served me well, but work has picked up recently and I may have enough extra money soon to buy a larger TV. But...I realized that I still have a bunch of components (Sony HDD/DVD recorder, all-region DVD player, etc.) that do not...

Electronics question by [email protected]
Not an HDTV question but I know there's a lot of knowledge here. My desktop computer has a Creative Labs sound card with a pair of Bose Companion 2 speakers connected to it. They work fine, but when I have no sound coming out of them, if I turn the volume control on the speaker itself all the way...

PC to HDTV question by [email protected]
I was at a friends house last week and he was showing me family pictures from his PC to a 42inch TV. I was very surprised at the resolution on the TV. He was using a spare PC which he moved into the living room to hook the TV up to, and also using a wireless keyboard, of which I have two with a...

Sony 4K question by [email protected]
A couple of months ago I posted asking what kind of quality I could expect watching regular TV stations in HD on one of these 4K sets. Not much feedback, though I was told that true 4K would only be available through a added device you have to get and right noew there aren't too many movies in...

SD material on an HD TV? by Patty Winter
Thanks to everyone for the information about composite inputs on current HDTV sets. I got to thinking about another possible issue: just how bad is SD content going to look on a 50" HDTV? I have a 32" HDTV now and the SD isn't too bad (in fact, depending on the source, it's quite good), but I'm...

Saint Anne 8-13-71 by [email protected]
St. Anne says, "There is much here for you today. Sometimes, in your prayer, you forget to trust. I know that many things are difficult for you to bear, but nonetheless, you must accept daily stress and offer it to God, Who is Here. Do not feel sadness for it only creates more sadness. It is...
