Re: Another million DirecTV Refugees - please read to get your TV back

Also.... Be your own central bank by getting out of the system and holding physical gold and silver as they are hard money with no counterparty risk. Every other asset is in a huge bubble which is starting to pop. Equities and bonds are over valued, real estate is over valued and banks are effective...

With so much free programming on c-band and atsc 3.0 just around the corner who needs those pay tv guys anyway? :yawn
That's what I'm saying. And I just heard on Fox Business a few minutes ago that now AT&T is looking for a way to ditch DirecTv. Bought a pig in a poke. :lol:

Re: 200 Cable TV Companies Are Suing to Block À La Carte TV

Cable and satellite better adapt or they are going to end up like Blockbusters! Was a great idea at the time but when the idea became outmoded they didn't change the business model and pretty soon they were bankrupted. People are not going to be held hostage to the cable/satellite companies anymore....

By Luke Bouma on September 15, 2019 Last week, Comcast, Disney, CBS, and Fox sued to block a new Maine law that would require cable companies to offer à la carte TV. Now, a second lawsuit filed by the National Cable & Telecommunications Association representing more than 200 cable networks, has been...

Re: mpeg 4.2.2

I had a paid copy of TSReader when I still had a P.C. I used that and a Genpix USB receiver and was very happy with it. Even the free version tells you a lot about the transport stream. The audio on DirecTv has never been scrambled and I used TSReader along with a plugin called DSStoDVB I believe to...

Re: How much are you willing to pay for a consumer h.264 and hevc (4.2.2) capable STB?

My answer really is 'it depends'. Right now with only ABC doing it I probably wouldn't want to pony up the money. Most main stream network TV is garbage IMO and with only ABC doing it there would be little reason for me personally to do so. If however, this becomes a trend and if many channels that ...

Re: ABC migrating to HEVC (4:2:2) today

I think I have computer envy. I'm sure I have computer envy. I'm still running a late 2012 27" iMac and although I can stream video to it just fine and play on VLC that 27" screen seems pretty tiny compared to the big screen on the wall. Now if my Mac had an hdmi output......

Re: Thinking about getting a c band antennae

Without going into all the details a C-band dish can get both but most people aren't going to be able to manage it. For KU reception on a C-band dish everything has to be perfect as far as tuning and aiming and it's an incredibly tedious and frustrating process. And a big dish that does both is slig...
