    Re: Digital TV (DTV)

    I'm using a pair of Viewsonic N2201W's, which are 1050 x 1680 LCD flatpanels with built-in DVD players. They do provide video output jacks, but only for the disc player, not the ATSC tuner, and the...

    Re: Digital TV (DTV)

    There are television stations in Canada, but the Ottawa régime operates them under fake Chilean callsigns (ie: anything beginning CB...) so that American viewers won't find out either that they exist...

    Re: getting ready for digital tv show question

    One possibility is to connect a VCR to two converter boxes, each tuned to a different channel. Connecting one converter to output on channel 3 and the other on channel 4 is less than ideal (you can...
