    News Corp threatens to move Fox to cable-only channel if Aereo isn't shut down

    The most recent (unconfirmed) numbers I have seen are about 17% of all households with a TV are getting their signal via OTA. I am one of those, and very interested in this technology. Going to be interested to watch.

    Going OTA

    I can adjust it up/down more if needed. May give that a try.

    Without the amp the numbers are much lower. Yep -- know that being outside would be the best of all worlds....

    Channel Master 3418 - 8 port (for future expansion -- I could go to 6 total TVs now if I really wanted to).

    Going OTA

    Some questions and looking for input/advice. Today I got the new distribution amp (Channel Master 3418) to hook up the remaining TVs. I have a total of 3 working at the moment and soon will be 4. The antenna (HBU33) is mounted in the attic and pointed at 41 degrees (mag). The direction it is...

    Got the HBU33 setup today. Easy t put together and mount in the attic. Went from 19 channels with so-so reception to 60 channels with great reception on most of them. Glad I made the choice I did. Very happy.

    Thanks for the input...based on what I have seen/read/been recommended, I will be going with the HBU33.

    Going OTA

    So last week I finally made the decision to go OTA and ditch Satellite after 12 years. To test it out I bought a basic indoor rabbit ears antenna and was surprised at how well they worked. But is very sensitive to weather. So I want to get a more robust antenna (and anything else recommended)...

    Seriously disappointed in Value Electronics...

    Just to complete the circle for this thread...the replacement R15 arrived as informed on Friday, and was BRAND NEW this time....worked out of the box and she is online and going. Even though it was unfortuante and disappointing that this happened, and hope they can work on not having this...

    Seriously disappointed in Value Electronics...

    I disagree with premature....issues like this need to be out in the open to be heard. It is by no means an attack on anyone, but a description of what occured and a way to do better business. I said I was disappointed, not boycotting anyone or getting all huffy about anything, just disappointed.

    Seriously disappointed in Value Electronics...

    The way they have dealt with this issue is first class. I hope I did convey that at the end of my message that they were fixing the issue. I just hope that they can improve on not allowing a previously opened item to go out...but I do understand things happen..... and it was just a message...

    This one came dirctly from VE. The replacement which will be here today is from another location.

    Seriously disappointed in Value Electronics...

    Its a shame that this has happened.....I ordered an R15 from Value Electronics last week and it arrived today. Super....this was going to be on a secondary TV to get use to it as they improve and fix some of the issue... PROBLEM: When I open the box right away it is obvious that this was...

    ‘DirecTV Plus’ DVR Hits Stores

    Not in the Best Buys down here. Was in one yesterday and they had the R10, but not the R15. Said they don't know when they will see them either. I wasn't looking necessarily to buy, just killing time while the wife was out doing her thing. I will likely do it through Robert at Value...
