    HBO HD-W Any rumors on DTV adding this?

    Folks, As an ever increasing portion of the US (no thanks to lack border security, lol) many of us here on the west coast would like to see HBO's hi-def channel in prime time. This is even more important if you've got rugrats scurrying about like i do. Can't have the kids watching Tony and...

    Voom Will Survive If:

    This thread is not meant to slam Voom. Please don't post if you want to, we have plenty of other threads started to do that. I thought we might have fun and post what each of us "sees" Voom being in the future. Predications- if you may. I think Voom will look very different a year from...

    Thoughts On The New Software

    Just a few notes on the update. It seems a cold reboot might be in order after the update. Since doing that, this firmware does overall, seem more stable. The RF OTA scanning is a nice Voom addtion, well done! I already had all my locals but I know many people did not. The audio variation...

    Thinking about leaving Voom- Here are 7 reasons

    Not in order of importance- 1.) Volume variation. 2.) Picture breakup when changing channels. 3.) STB that locks up- alot! 4.) Lack of SD channels (more kids stuff to start with) 5.) STB cannot tune local cable TV (D* can) 6.) No Sunday Ticket (but I knew this) 7.) Lousy install-...

    Any Bonehead Installers Pull this One on You?

    My installer really takes the cake: He used the diaplexer module on my STB and then put my OTA into the UHF/VHF input, though I have two lines! I was installed around 5/11/2004 in Los Angeles. The guy that was here named was Thomas and he and I went to my roof to look over things. I...

    Sony STB for Voom?

    Why the heck can't Voom contract with one the best STB makers in the satellite business? If the Voom goal is to offer the best in HD why not offer us the best in equipment? I know many of those here in this forum would agree the Moto box reeks. If any of you here has owned and used a Song...

    Weingard Square Shooter - OTA Solution- had anyone used? There had been some real positive feedback on this new antenna from Weingard, maybe we should encourage Voom to look into it. Here is a copy of one post from Remote Central- "Just thought I'd let you guys know that I recently...

    Hi, I'm getting Voom installed and I wonder if anyone else here has done this. I have cable and my old *D* had a coax input for cable TV, could decode it and show the channels and times on the channels guide right along with the *D* programming. Any Voomers get this to work? Because of...

    Voom being installed this week in Santa Monica, CA

    I haven't seen anyone else here with Voom in Santa Monica, California (near LA). I already have an OTA (Weingart) that Voom tells me that they will use. It works great, so i'm hoping the install will go smooth. They are coming out on the 13th, I hope!
