    AT&T completes DIRECTV spinoff.

    If at&t wanted Directv so they could move the customer base to streaming, that was a colossal mistake. The DTV base population as a whole will have the least access to high speed broadband. That's why they have satellite TV. Maybe at&t was planning to vastly increase their fiber footprint to...

    Not to change the subject, but has anyone noticed that we don't see at&t ads when the program is paused now?

    OECFiber in Oklahoma

    Still waiting for OEC Fiber at my house. I looked at their map today, and I see that the service is now available two streets away. At that pace, we my have it in 2022. I really want to drop att DSL, but I don't want Cox.

    Dune (2020)

    I started watching last night. I got about an hour in before I had to get to sleep. It does seem well done, and true to the novel. I'll finish it soon.

    NFL 2021

    Baker Mayfield has to hate losing to Mahomes. Mahomes is why he transferred from Texas Tech to Oklahoma as a walk-on. But if Cleveland had Travis Kelce, I think the Browns would be the better team.

    No Signal on 3 Channels

    My low signal channels are back, with the old LNB still in place. Maybe it needed a vacation from me, like I needed a vacation at the lake.

    No Signal on 3 Channels

    So I got the SL5-SWM from Solid Signal and installed it on the dish. But the receiver doesn't see an SWM with that LNB. I put the old one back on, and that one is visible to the receiver and connects. I know that only one cable connects to the LNB, but I really don't see a power inserter...

    I think that I'll order the SL5-SWM LNB from Solid Signal. It looks like a direct replacement.

    No Signal on 3 Channels

    Lately I don't get Smithsonian, NFL Network and Science Channel in HD. Other channels are fine. Is this a dish alignment issue or a bad LNB issue?

    Isaac Asimov's Foundation (Apple TV+)

    I think that I read the Foundation novels in reverse as a teenager, starting with Second Foundation. I didn't know that the others existed until I started to investigate books by Asimov in our local library. What a delight to find such intelligent science fiction.
