    Wall Street Journal: More VOOM details

    Not to get too OT, but I still can't help wonder that if they had good installs and a solid set top box, then they would have succeeded. It was a good idea, and the guy is to be given credit for coming up with it, but when you turn on the TV and you often can't get a PG or a signal, then the...

    The End of VOOM?

    yeah, and no risk since the hardware is new, no launch risk, and its already up and running. Quite a deal really.

    Disgruntled VOOM Employee

    Like I said when I cancelled my service and had billing trouble. The CSA's were the nicest bunch of useless people I have ever met. And it wasn't there fault, they weren't allowed to solve anything.

    Not good...

    All of this still indicates to me that I need a good OTA no matter who is supplying my HD. At least then I will get some bandwidth for a few shows. Of course, until all the subs eat up the network bandwidth. I'm glad I had HD for a couple years. At least w/the old PBS stuff I know what HD...

    CM4228 Pre-amped

    It's best to go w/the largest antenna you can handle and then add a pre-amp if you need to.

    Does D* brainwash it's subscribers?

    A lot of sets accept 1080i, but my understanding is that they actually procerss 540 to 540p to cheapen the deinterlacing costs.

    Save me from the darkside ;)

    I went from voom to cable, but cable still does not have many of the OTA channels available and, stupidly I think, they don;t have an OTA tuner on the HD box. They do have an HD PVR rolling out. I have a MyHD 'cause I like to get all of our local OTA content and sub's when available...

    If you cancel, watch your CC

    Well..., Sean was kind enough to send some emails and even he got no response from anyone. I called VOOM again today and they said they see the problem, my credit card has been "unassigned" from the account. Whatever that means. I asked her why no-one had told me about this over the past...

    A final cry for help from a Voom subscriber soon to be forced into cancelling.

    How can you possibly say that the antenna install would be $2000? That's ridiculous. This isnt evolving technology, antennas have been installed like this for decades.

    Should I wait, or go with Direct now?

    I have the same concern as this poster. I am worried that the HDPVR will not work w/the 5 lnb dish or that they will start to implement MPG4 in the next few months w/no upgrade path. Any ideas?

    Using an Analog receiver for FTA

    Well at least I don't have the tree problem, I live on a lake that see's a huge arc unimpeded. My mesh has a hole that is trapezoidal in nature, but only 0.012" in the longest direction. I assume this is OK for Ku?
