350 miles DX by Bruce Tomlin
Just now I did a "manual rescan" by going up the whole range of channels in my signal strength screen, noting weak signals for future investigation. I found one strong signal that I didn't have on the list I was keeping. I looked it up by callsign. It was the Fox station KFXK 51 from Longview,...

Well, here they are dropping 30-74. The basic service will still be in analog. I knew Comcast was going to drop the other shoe at some point. You could see it coming with the means to use their bandwidth for more revenue producing services. At least the boxes will be free, or so it...

HDTV Antenna Business is Booming with DTV Transition, Says AntennasDirect by UCLAN[_2_]
Maybe it was a good idea to push the DTV switch date back after all. We know that millions of people weren't ready for the switch on its original February date. However, it seems like a lot of those people spent the early part of 2009 clamoring for equipment, not just the digital converter...

Mini-Review: Spears & Munsil High Definition Benchmark Disc, Blu-rayEdition by UCLAN[_2_]
A good test disc that features useful video test patterns is something I always recommend even for the video neophyte, as most HDTV owners can’t or won’t pop for a full in-home calibration. With rare exception, just about any HDTV’s out-of-the-box default video settings virtually guarantee an...
