    Time Warner to add 50 HD channels on April 30, plans to offer 100 by end of the year.

    I went to and it didn't say anything about any 50 HD channels. Just the same ones that we get here in Western NY. FIOS is coming here soon. TW will have decent competition (other than the dish guys...)

    New KCBU content...

    I noticed the KCBU programming change a few weeks ago, and see It Takes a Thief is on Sat & Sun at 4pm EDT. Great. Last couple weeks, it's on. I remember watching this one as a teenager. This weekend, WTF is this - some hair gel commercial???

    Galaxy 25 Troubles

    Whats the Chieta switch for, if you have 1 dish and 1 receiver? I bought one of those "high quality Chieta" switches - it lasted exactly 20 seconds before it burned up. Take the switch out of the lines - go directly from reciever (thru motor) to LNBF. See how that acts for you.

    Jaeger SMR-1224 EL Group Buy?

    (I'll post this here and over at the other site... ) How much weight will this motor handle? My H180 is in the trash bin because it broke in half, could not hold up a 6 foot dish. This thing looks very similar, I'd hate to spend the money and find my dish on the ground...
