    I wish those HDMI to ATSC modulators were cheaper. I would be using 7 channels to modulate with Orby receiver.

    The sooner everyone gives up on the fantasy that residential ATSC modulators will ever be an option, the better off we'll all be.

    I think the solution probably lies in HDMI matrix switches.

    Call and ask them. Since they haven't been around for long, how could any of us know?

    I wondered about that too, I take antenna down before one comes thru would with a dish too if I decide to switch from cable. I assumed would be easy enough to mark the various adjustment points to put back at same aim it was.

    Absolutely. And it will hit somewhere with Orby subscribers.

    Eventually.

    Being as you own the equipment and there is no contract - just pay a month in advance.... you need to treat the dish as yours and call your insurance company about the storm damage.

    Because Orby is a privately held company, public information about how they are doing probably won't be available.
     

Separate names with a comma.
