    I have not. Of course I have no way of knowing what is coming on and when. I just tune in occasionally just to see. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    4K Events Discussion Thread

    I just tuned to HDR golf on my new Samsung QN85QN90A. I’m blown away at how good it looks. Crystal clear and very bright. Man why can’t we have a full time 4K HDR channel? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    New TV, Dish vs Antenna comparison

    I know that the antenna is supposed to give the best reception for network tv. I guess it’s an uncompressed signal? I’ve always read that but to be honest I’ve never really been able to tell much difference between OTA and Dish on my locals. I had a really good tv (65” Samsung JS8500) although...

    Why won’t remote control tv?

    Replacing my batteries fixed my issue. Although the onscreen settings showed my batteries were good. Sent from my iPad using SatelliteGuys

    Why won’t remote control tv?

    In my bedroom I have a cheap Olevia brand tv that I’ve had for years. I’ve also had the same Joey and remote for years. The past few weeks I’ve had problems with the dish remote controlling the tv (power & volume). The batteries are good so I’m not sure why this is happening. It only happens...

    Maybe it’s just my tv. But the Dish 4K channel just always looks dark to me. The Fox 4K HDR game on my Roku Ultra looks way better for some reason. It has the same clarity as the dish game but the picture is much brighter. Sent from my iPad using SatelliteGuys

    Did you compare the Roku picture to Dish4K? Just curious if it looks dark to anyone else. Sent from my iPad using SatelliteGuys

    So I flipped back and forth between my hopper and Roku for the Ohio State/Nebraska game. The hopper picture on channel 540 is clear but really dark. I know the game on the Roku isn’t HDR but is it in 4K? IMO the Roku looks better than 540. Sent from my iPad using SatelliteGuys

    MacBook Pro or iPad Pro for college?

    Alright guys, I appreciate everyone’s input. But you guys will have to talk in “computers for dummies” language. If I’m understanding correctly, there’s better options for backing up data on a MacBook than iCloud? There was a guy in our local computer store yesterday that said she should be...

    MacBook Pro or iPad Pro for college?

    Alright guys, I’ve narrowed my decision but need one more piece of advice. Based on what she’ll be doing we’ve decided on the MacBook Air. At the price point I’m looking at I can do 8GB of memory with 512GB hard drive. Or I can do 16GB memory with 256GB hard drive. It will be her primary...

    MacBook Pro or iPad Pro for college?

    She checked with the college and they don’t have any requirements. But I’m curious. Although we’re an Apple family and has always had great success with every Apple product we’ve owned. I’m wondering if there’s anything else out there that someone would recommend as well? I haven’t shopped for...

    MacBook Pro or iPad Pro for college?

    Have you seen or read about the newest iPad pro’s? I personally haven’t but my daughter has been investigating them recently. She seems to think the newest ones are more on par with laptops. We just had this discussion tonight so I haven’t had time to look into too much. Sent from my iPad...
