    Help with OTA HD Antenna hookup!

    I've just hooked up a separate OTA HD antenna to my DVR (HR10-250) and I'm not sure what I now need to do to get the local channels in HD. Can someone help me out? Is there a setting I need to change? As it is nothing seems to have changed. Also, while I have an idea of what some of the HD...

    Installation questions

    Well, I returned all the stuff to BestBuy and contacted Value Electronics. Called 'em on Wednesday, watching DirecTV two days later. Talk about putting the big boys to shame. I am in awe at the lack of basic customer service skills shown by DirecTV and IronWood. Hell, when I called...

    Installation questions

    Well, I'm pretty annoyed right now. I called DirecTV to tell them of my troubles with the installation company and they weren't very helpful. I asked if I could work with another company and they said they'd make sure I don't get the same technician. I'm like, I don't care about the...

    Installation questions

    Is there any way to tell if my coax is RG6 before they get here? This is a brand new condo built in 2005 if that makes a difference. ...and when you say find the closet, do you mean the closet outside, or the wall plate in my closet in my bedroom? The closet in my bedroom is a fair...
