ReplayTV keeps getting more valuable....


Sometime ago I have fallen behind on using my ReplayTV to view down-converted HD.

Mainly because I have an HD DVR from the cable company....

Pretty much the main reason to continue using the ReplayTV with down-converted HD is either stuff I can record from HD, but won't get around to watching right away...because the HD DVR only holds about 15 hours worth of HD, so I have to watch it just about every night in order to avoid running out of space. And, Sinclair operates FOX and ABC in my these stations aren't available on cable.

Then on March 9th, NBC went off the air....they are in the process of upgrading to a more powerful transmitter ... they do have a 1kW transmitter for the interim...though I hear it is currently at 750W, due to a problem with not having the right fuse for it.

Well, what happens....the HD DVR is on the blink.... And, there are new episodes of L&O:CI and Crossing Jordan tonight....

Since the problem couldn't be resolved over the phone, and the service call is scheduled for Tuesday...I was starting to pull my hair out (which is hard, because there isn't much to grab on to).....

But, luckily, it turns out that I can still receive NBC-HD OTA from my at least I can now use my ReplayTV to get the shows. I can still get the shows in HD...and not have to resort to doing something alien like watching it live. &#59;D

Though I do have to rework my scheduling a case things don't get resolved on Tuesday.....I want to make sure I get to see this week's episode of Committed. :>>

Service Call Scheduled

Well, I called Time Warner about the problems my SA8000HD is having. After a reboot cycle (I've already done this numerous times already), and the problem continuing. They setup a service call to have somebody come out.

It is scheduled for 12-2 on Tuesday.

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.
