    Charter internet vs AT&T Fiber

    So you need to pay close attention to where you are testing to!! What AT&T will do is put a speed test server in the IAX you are connected to. Let me give you an example of how this works.. It would be like you and I making a bet who can run to WalMart the fastest.. My WalMart would be 100...

    Bad HDMI Cable???

    Then your T.V. is momentarily switching to NTSC analog mode or the engineer who made the software thought it would be cool to use the snow as a screen switching buffer display.. You will never get snow on a digital signal.. The receiver will receive noise but it will not draw anything on the...

    Bad HDMI Cable???

    I am just going to toss this out there. Snow is the analog visual depiction of radiated electromagnetic noise that is randomly ingested into the front end of a receiver "AKA" your T.V. tuner. Your HDMI port has no tuner it is a digital signal it is on or off.. One of three things has happen...

    Anyone ever put a motor on a 90cm Channel Master

    I am wanting to set up a movable 90cm I am thinking of using a 90cm Channel Master retired from Primestar. I think this dish is a bit heaver than most of the FTAs that are on the market.. Have any of you motorized a 90cm Channel Master if so what motor did you use and has it held up for you?

    Orby Install Help!

    At the end of the day what I have speced here is better than a MasTec install.. Both the TVRO antenna and the OTA antenna have more gain that what is provided on the OrbyTV/MasTec install.. I have no issue with rain fade on my .75 Channel Master dish and I can pull other feeds off the bird if...
