I took 2 hours off from work to be home and see "Enterprise" in HD from the very beginning. I got home- turned on the VOOM box and no signal! I looked outside and the antenna had been moved. Well, I spent 35 minutes moving and fu--ing with that damn antenna. Finally I gave up and resigned myself to watvh the TIVO"d version later. I then realize NOTHING IS WORKING WITH VOOM. I unplug and reboot, interestingly I see ESPN on ch 8-15 and I turn to ch 59 and "ENTERPRISE " is there--rock solid. So, all the downloads andchanges for the addition of espn probably caused the lack of signal for ota. If I had rebooted at 8:01 rather than 8:40 I could have seen 59 hd minutes rather than the 20 I saw. Live and learn!!!

All what downloads and changes? Are you saying you now have something new on your STB that shows all the ESPN channels?

I thought you were going to say that your life is ruined because you will be home watching Voom and ESPN all day or something. Maybe you should take a nap instead mattyro, your post seems like you are a little frazzled.

It's not like they never repeat Enterprise, give it a week or two, it'll be on again. Our UPN shows it Wed and repeats Sunday.

5 day waiting period...

Isn't this one reason many places have a 5 day waiting period to buy guns? ;)
