OT: What I learned from this election

So due to the shit show we have been given, the past few weeks I have actually been doing a lot of research and have learned the following One of the reason 3rd party candidates seem so appealing is similar to the Donald Trump effect - they are different and not the same old thing. They want in...

DTV to offer streaming option...

Interesting piece from the WSJ about a new ATT DTV service. Wonder how this service would input to a receiver since there is no cable box needed. I can see a Rube Goldberg input via a Smart TV (either ethernet or wifi), but PITA switching between channels. Also, no mention of DVR capibility...

TV Help!

My in-laws bought a new TV and I was given the honor of installing it. It's a 48 Samsung flat screen and ever since I set it up there's been distortion(?) in the colors on the TV. It happens via both of their signals: Dish and Digital Air Broadcasts. I know for sure that the DISH is hooked up with...

OT: Fox News anchor Shepard Smith comes out as gay

Normally somebody coming out isn't really news and who cares but when it is essentially the face of Fox news for the last 7+ years I think that is a little different. To top it all off Shep defends Roger Ailes as a nice guy who never made fun of him but did advise him not to come out- go figure. ...

Live 4K on DTV?

Last year I bought a LG 4K tv. It streams 4K content great from Amazon Prime, NetFlix and youtube. Not so much from DTV. Their prerecorded 4K shows work fine from DTV. However, their live 4K content is hard to connect to with my receiver. During the Olympics, it took several attempts to tune...

What happened to VOD from the guide?

So now we can't get hardly any VOD from the channel guide. EPIX is about the only channel we can. You can still do it from the individual channels, but what an ordeal. Yesterday I had to go to STRZ to get Risen, but it wasn't under drama, it was under popular (considering what a snooze fest it...

Hopper 3 questions.

I had the Hopper 3 installed today. Right now I have 3 questions. I was not present for the install, but I doubt I would have caught these at the time the technician was here anyway. 1. OTA channels do not display on guide. I scanned, selected all and saved, but none of them are on guide nor can...

Panny 7 red blinking lights-Sears repair??

I got the 7 blinking red lights on my TC-P50GT30. I've already replaced it with a 55" 4K Samsung SUHDTV. Now my question is whether to have Sears Home services fix the Panny (I'm assuming around a $400 quote) or to just throw the old unit away. Has anyone had any luck with Sears and/or...

Best HDTV for persons blind in 1 eye

I'm wanting to buy my mom a larger TV, but I was wondering if a big curved TV is better than a big flat screen. She just lost her vision in her dominant eye 6 weeks ago after a retinal surgery.
