    HR20 With No HD???

    So I got an HR20 yesterday, hooked it all up, called to activate, etc... None of the HD channels (except HD locals) show up. It says "not purchased." Yet I have a straight HD box where all is well. 103(b) shows no signal in the HR20, yet on the standard HD box, transponders are all in the...

    Calling OTA Experts!

    My other half and I are looking to buy a hobby farm. Great location, except that it's near the bottom of a short bluff and ravine system that lies between us and the 45-degreee direction needed to aim the VHF for OTA. We're about 55 miles southwest of the Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN area...

    6412 Demand?

    I strolled into the local Mediacom office to get a second 6412 for my home and was told they only allow one 6412 per household. Wahh? I asked why and the lady said it was because of demand--that a lot of companies use them, and that there's a waiting list for them, and that they're really...

    Samsung SIR T-451 Issue

    After losing Voom (bastards) I got a Samsung SIR T-451 for OTA channels. Does anyone know if there's a soft or hard reset for this thing? Just in the past few days, the audio is only coming out the right side. It happens on all channels. The cables are all in order. Once in a while it...

    Post Voom HD

    Hey, if you guys haven't seen this yet (and I apologize if you have) check out http://www.usatoday.com/tech/news/2005-04-05-speed-usat_x.htm If one were to draw an inference or three, bandwidth limitations would cease to be an issue if HD programming was available on-demand. You'd only be...

    Vooming Through the Motions

    This is a prime example that Voom and Installs Inc. are either going through the motions, or were just screwed up to start with. Keep in mind that this is for a DE-INSTALL (that is noted on the form, but the rest looks like cheery "welcome to Voom" pr stuff). Wow From : INSTALLS inc...

    Jumping Ship

    I'm not sure this is the right place to put this post, and I would not even ask the question, but I can't find the answer on this site or Voom's. For a myriad of reasons, I'm dumping Voom for Mediacom. More services, one bill, lower cost, (less HD content, but I rarely watch the exculsives...

    Program Planner Updates?

    While we pine for a DVR, here's something to comment on. Is there any possibility that Voom would update their program planner to allow programming by time and day(s) with the ability to have recurring programming ala D*? I record several different programs daily and it's a pain to have to...
