    Just Ordered Cox HD DVR

    Any chance that the Cox HDDVR box can be used to tune and record OTAHD? If not by itself, maybe hooked up to another OTA reciever (hoping my Voom box will still get OTA)?

    Movies Voom introduced you to.

    "The Hills Have Eyes" was the biggest gem. I had always wanted to see it, but could never find it on DVD in a video store (it may not be out on DVD). As mentioned above, "French Twist" and "Vampire Lovers" were good. Also "Asylum", "Lifeforce", "Bubba Ho-Tep", "Swordsman", and "Chinese Ghost...

    What I'll miss about Voom (mourning thread)

    I want to start a thread for us to say some last words regarding the passing of Voom. Like many of my friends, Voom was an unreliable looser, but was very entertaining and fun to hang out with. In the beginning of our relationship, I was stood up many times and became very frustrated with the...

    Nissan Z-Cars on Wealth HD

    No fair. I don't get Wealth because I don't have Va Va Voom. I need the extra money to buy car parts. I am a Z-car enthusiast, and have a tape of the show from the history channel. Please tell me it's the same one so I don't feel like I'm missing out. It has Mr K (old Japanese dude, father of...

    What I would Do If I Were In Charge

    I agree that we need less movie channels, but we need to keep Ultra for my girlfriend. Rush could be combined with the sports channel. Rave should show more concert DVD type movies and MTV type videos. Equator should just be a documentary channel combined with 104. Animania needs more content. I...

    Promises promises

    I love Voom. However, I've had terrible experiences trying to get service. My summer of Voom consisted of many Saturdays waiting for an installer who never showed up. I had to order a cancellation to trick someone into showing up to get it fixed. I wish Voom would be more pro-active about making...

    DVR as X-mas gift for Dish user?

    Thanks for all the help guys. I've decided that the easiest, foolproof gift will be what StevenD did. I'll just put some credit on dad's account, and then he can decide which DVR to get or just use it for his bill.

    DVR as X-mas gift for Dish user?

    My dad has a Dish system, and has told me that he wished he had gotten the DVR with it. I assume that he got whatever free equipment is offered to new subscribers. I was thinking about getting him a new 510 DVR from Ebay for his X-mas gift, but am not sure if it would work out for him. 1.)...

    OTA - Proving to Installs/Voom that antennaweb.org is not always right

    Good work patvr. I've given up on getting help from Voom and am going to try my own OTA antenna upgrade. Based on other research, your setup also looks like a good choice for me. Could you (or anyone else) help me figure out how to do it: 1.) The description on the Winegard HD7084P says its...

    What's the Scoop on The EPG Today?

    I've had the same experience trying to watch "Live Nude Girls". I'm beginning to think this is a conspiracy to make people watch crappy documentaries. I wonder if an actual movie with this title even exists. I think "Live Nude Girls" would be a good name for a band to trick people into paying a...

    where's our skin at?

    Yea, you're right. But, its my girlfriend who actually flips to the fashion shows. Fortunately I don't mind watching them as much as she hates watching car shows with me.

    where's our skin at?

    Actually we have some pretty good shows if you know where to look. I surf alot, and seem to have pretty good luck finding the right scenes. I like the see through blouses the models wear on Ultra. I've even seen full breast exposure once when a model's blouse opened, and she didn't notice. "The...

    [REQUEST] Boondock Saints and Reservoir Dogs

    That is likely to happen. I've seen Resevoir Dogs on IFC. Other movies on IFC have end up on Voom eventually. I can't remember what they were. Or maybe they ended up on UPN Friday night HD movie. Does anybody else know of IFC movies that have appeared on Voom or other HD channels?

    Bye, Bye Voom

    I've gone through the same thing trying to get an OTA antenna upgrade. When they look up my area on antennaweb.org, it says there are no digital channels in my area. I get at least 6 and hope for more with a better antenna. I looked into switching to DirectTV. You have to buy equipment to get HD...

    How Howard Stern's move may effect Voom.

    Sounds like you support the censorship :) Or is it our president you are against?

    Best deal for a new subscriber?

    Thanks for the link. I'm planning to jump on this offer too. I'm also thinking about a DIY install, and this looks like it has everything I need except some cables and an OTA antenna. I'm just doing a 1 room setup, so if I ran 2 cables from the dish, and 1 from the antenna, I wouldn't need any...

    Voom STB chooses SD over HD from my local NBC

    Yes, this channel is mapped as 15-1. OTA scan did not help. PG list certain shows in HD but they come in SD. The only HD I've seen was the olympics. Based on what the station engineer wrote, this is because they turned of the SD signal. Somehow the SD signal overrides the HD signal. I guess this...

    Voom STB chooses SD over HD from my local NBC

    Forgive me if this is a repost. I get NBC OTA, but it usually comes in SD instead of HD. Here's what the station engineer wrote: We broadcast 2 services on our Digital channel. WPMI-HD is broadcast on 47-3/15-1 and WPMI-SD is broadcast on 47-2/15-2. VOOM has had some issues with the Motorola...
