That's not always true that it can't be reprogrammed. I bought a Voom Box
off of Ebay and the seller was living in the Dallas Ft Worth area while
using the box. She switched to Direct TV after Voom went off and sold 2 Voom
boxes on Ebay. I bought 1 and I live in Oklahoma City all I had to do is
connect it to my antenna in my attic and scan for the channels and was able
to get ABC,NBC,CBS FOX,WB,UPN, PBS, PAX, some with multiple channels all in
HD when programming is available. The only thing I had to do is hide the
channels in the favorites menu from Dallas because I couldn't clear them.

Hello Rick
As you found out. From my experience with the Voom box, it is just a waste
of time and good money. Well, money at least. All Voom boxes are area
specific. Programmed by the satellite provider for local channels in a
specific geographical area. Once moved to another area it must be
reprogrammed to that area. And sines the provider is non existent, thus no
new programming. Wallah ! = "Boat Anchor" I want to mention that I have a
HDTV station ten miles from me with good signal strength and it won't give
me a decodeable signal..Out of five stations in my area I get one and
sometimes two with a rather large outside antenna. For the most part Voom
boxes are sold on eBay, thus its a buyer-be-ware situation. I could go on
but I won't. This is my recommendation. Abandon the Voom and buy yourself
a receiver that is not satellite specific. ie: Dish, Direct etc. One more
thing for you to consider. Get yourself a Dish 811 HDTV system with locals,
your problems will be over.
Feel free to contact me and ask me a question or two. Note: I sell nothing
and I'm not commected to any commercial company. Strictly a hobbiest. Tnx
Gary

I just received a voom with the latest software. I must be doing
something wrong. I can't get any signal. The list of local channels
is not for my area. Chicago. It is pretty frustrating. The present
antenna is Jensen 920. I just purchased the new TERK HDTVLP

LOW PROFILE INDOOR ANTENNA. Any help in getting unit to work would
be
greatly appreciated.
