Time to reconfigure my TV inputs....

Decided it was time to see about freeing up my DVI input again, and seeing how my Momitsu V880N would work on VGA input.

Before:

Composite Video 3 - Momitsu V880N
S-Video 1 - ReplayTVs (4:3)
S-Video 2 - ReplayTVs (Wide)
S-Video 3 - Sony DVD Player
Component Video 1 - Momitsu V880N
Component Video 2 - SA8000HD DVR
Component Video 3 - 2nd OTA HDTV Tuner
VGA - 1st OTA HDTV Tuner
DVI - Momitsu V880N

After:

Composite Video 3 - Momitsu V880N
S-Video 1 - ReplayTVs (4:3)
S-Video 2 - ReplayTVs (Wide)
S-Video 3 - Sony DVD Player
Component Video 1 - SA8000HD DVR
Component Video 2 - 1st OTA HDTV Tuner
Component Video 3 - 2nd OTA HDTV Tuner
VGA - Momitsu V880N
DVI - Open

So far so good with the output from the Momitsu V880N to VGA...but I've only looked at the previews on the Shrek 2 DVD so far.

Rumor has it that Time Warner has new DVRs that fix the audio/video problems and uses DVI. Actually I hear it is an HDMI port on it. Which is what I was saving the DVI for (while trying to put off having to buy a DVI switcher for as long as possible).

So, guess this holiday I'll mostly be watching the movies that I've recorded on to the HD DVR first...to minimize the lose that would happen for when a change out takes place.

The annoying thing about having done the shuffle...is having to retune my antenna for OTA HDTV reception. But, I'm kind of stuck with having to go this way....because of Sinclair. Of course, to make things worse...it is very difficult to receive these signals over the air. Multipath is high, and ABC is VHF....while FOX is UHF but they see to do weird things with power. Both are on the same stick, but can't point the antenna in the same direction to receive them. I get the other stations just because I can. Otherwise, if I could get everything using cable. Another HD DVR or two would be something I would consider.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
