    Walmart Seals Deal to Buy VIZIO

    The 2-year-old LG 4K TV in my bedroom has perhaps the best EPG I've ever seen for my OTA channels, but the LG OS is clunky for streaming apps. I suspect, as others have said, these TV OS designs will improve over time.

    Walmart Seals Deal to Buy VIZIO

    I've been using a Roku Ultra for the past year, super fast. I also like that it has an ethernet port so I can connect directly to my switch.

    There's a member here whose profile banner is "Remember, Satelliteguys are not your average customer!"

    Walmart Seals Deal to Buy VIZIO

    I guess I just haven't been keeping up. Hard to believe there could now be an "old school" group of streaming customers who think of their primary way of using content is an external "stick" or STB. Could be because my primary TV is a "dumb" TV.

    Walmart Seals Deal to Buy VIZIO

    Why would anyone use a TV OS to stream their favorite content? Perhaps this is the only realm Walmart could improve upon (but they won't).

    Walmart Seals Deal to Buy VIZIO

    Only because it's running a proprietary OS. Assuming someone could load Roku OS on another streaming stick or box, the ads would be there too.

    Walmart Seals Deal to Buy VIZIO

    Not to split hairs, but technically that isn't hardware, it's software- the ads are displayed by the Roku OS.

    Walmart Seals Deal to Buy VIZIO

    Couldn't they have just made a "Walmart streaming stick" of some kind, like Amazon did?

    Walmart Seals Deal to Buy VIZIO

    Does this mean Vizio is now a Walmart "house" brand like Insignia is for Best Buy?

    New Motor!

    So there's still a lot of room for other channels in that mux. Wonder who the intended recipient is and if they'll ever add more channels to it.

    What is the bitrate of NTI?

    New Motor!

    For whatever reason, 103 is my strongest satellite and I've never lost DW. I don't understand why it has such a high SR when the video quality is so bad. Seems like they're overpaying for unused bandwidth? I'm disappointed that they're decommissioning 103 later this year. It's a lot younger...

    New Motor!

    If you're talking about one of these, I have had a motorized 90cm installed on one and it works fine. Use 8 or more cinder blocks to stabilize. https://a.co/d/6SXeEy1

    Email from Amazon about Prime Video

    I don't mind the commercials during the shows, it's the fact that streaming commercials are often the same one over and over again. A three minute break with the same five commercials.

    New all-glass Kansas City airport opens next week

    Not sure how common this is for airports, but soon people can go through TSA as a guest and access the retail and restaurants in the terminal https://fox4kc.com/business/new-nonstop-flights-guest-option-coming-to-kci-airport-in-2024/

    Damn NFL!

    Goes into my AVR first. Just checked some other apps on the Roku and the surround is working. Not sure what the issue is with P+ on my Roku.

    Damn NFL!

    Interesting. I have the same Roku.

    Damn NFL!

    I compared them both and the video on the OTA feed here is much worse than P+ although the audio is better on the OTA feed. There hasn't been any center channel on the P+ feed. It's there on the OTA feed.

    Damn NFL!

    I've been tuned in to the game on Paramount+ since 5:00 CT and it's been steady the whole time. Could be an east coast CDN issue?

    What do people think they're accomplishing by being a BS'er?

    Absolutely. Just part of human nature I guess.

    What do people think they're accomplishing by being a BS'er?

    Probably insecurity. Maybe they want to impress others.
