    I’ve read your postings about Uverse in Houston. I would like to try them, but they don’t provide any estimates on when they might be available. I live in 77041, Eldridge and W Little York area. Uverse has reached all areas west, north and east of me. They are loosing business as people leave Comcast and sign up 24 month deals with Dish and Directv, while they could have waited for uverse if tghey knew it might be available within couple of months.
    Any idea on how to find out future availability?
    Thanks

    Hi Richard,

    I noted that you gave an answer to somebody that the overscan might be turned off. Here is the link to it.

    I am having the same problem on HD channels using a Sony Bravia KDL40XBR4 tv and a a Motorola DCT3416. A vertical green line on the right. I’m hoping you might be able to help in setting the tv or box to make it go away.

    Thank you.

    Richard,
    I have seen several of your posts regarding the remote control issue with U-Verse. I have an IR Repeater that does not work, seems to be a common problem. What is the name of the Radio Shack product that you have mentioned several times and does it work pretty well?

    Thanks,

    Nick,
    I don’t have any information on U-verse availability.

    Brij,
    I don’t know for that set.

    Claire,
    While those units will output to HDTVs, it does not appear from your website that they record in HD. If you want to send me a unit for evaluation, let me know.

    Trent,
    It is the only RF repeater they offer, model 15-1950. It is the only extender I’ve found that is reliable with the U-verse system.

    Richard,
    After several hours researching on this site and others, I have the solution. The solution is the RF 20 remote with Power Blaster. I hooked it up and it works great with U-Verse and all of my other components. The one catch is that you have to teach the RF 20 all of the U0Verse commands but this is easy and takes about 20 minutes. I got a great deal on the remote at:

    I hope this helps others.

    Hi Richard,
    We have a 50HDX82 Toshiba Tv which is approximately 6 yrs. old. We were having a fuzzy (distorted) picture at the very top of the screen when watching TV–We have Time Warner Cable come out and fix it–well they seem to have made it worse (one tech said there was too much power coming into the house, another tech said not enough)–we had another person come out and he said it was the TV.

    We got another opinion from the ppl we bought it from and they said the TV. We are paying to have a TV tech come 50 miles away to look at it and see if he can fix it.

    I keep saying it’s not the TV, the picture is distorted on the lower channels-(we need to leave the TV on for approx. 1/2 hr+ to warm up.
    When you go to the HD channels the pictures are very clear. I did read an article on poor SD for HD TV’s.

    I’d like to know do you think it is the TV or our cable?

  9. admin Says:

    You have a CRT based HDTV and it can have convergence and geometry issues. I have a CRT HDTV that is a bit fuzzy on the left hand side, but not enough to warrant doing anything since I plan to replace it soon and I don’t watch it much. It may very well be your HDTV.

  10. Troy Dampier Says:

    You stated you were able to configure the Happauge IR Blaster software for the picture u-Verse box. I am assuming since mine look very similar that you have the Cisco IPN-330HD which is a legacy scientific atlantic box. I was wondering what exact configuration you had setup in the Happauge software for this type of STB.

    Thanks,

    Troy

  11. admin Says:

    My U-verse box is a Motorola. I don’t know if the Cisco box is supported or not.

    Do splitters diminish signal on an OTA antenna (not satellite) like they do on cable TV?

  13. admin Says:

    Yes splitters do to an OTA signal the same as cable.

    Hello, I’m looking for some help…. and it seems you might be the person to ask! Let me thank you ahead of time, as I know it takes time out of your life to reply to these things.

    I have a new Win7 laptop with a VGA output to my Plasma. (so VGA to VGA)

    How can I get the best quality picture with what I’m working with?
    I ripped an .ISO and the quality isn’t up to par. Is that the best I’m going to get?
    I have an upconverting DVD player that I am very happy with (I know it’s not HD but it’s just fine with me).
    Basically I would like to put my DVD collection onto my laptop, but with similar quality. Can that work?
    If it can’t, what format do you guys recommend for .ISO quality?
    MKV? AVI? I have no clue lol!

    Anyways, any help would be appreciated! Thanks.

  16. admin Says:

    I would recommend joining my Forum at http://www.highdefforum.com and asking you question there. A forum is a better place for help.

    Do you live on the Big Island? I’m originally from Kona. Great article on Uverse. Is it available on the Big Island?

  23. Chris Says:

    I have been researching getting OTA reception on my property and have a unique situation. We live in a very rural location that is approx 40 to 50 miles from the closest towers. The terrain is very hilly and wooded. The property is over 100 acres in eastern KY. Our driveway comes off a ridge at 1100 feet above sea level and has a good signal path, but the house sits at 920′ and has almost no signal. The distance is around 3000′ from the optimal antenna location to the house. I can run RG6 and used to be a lineman so running the line is not a problem. I also have a/c at the antenna site because of a barn with electrical lights. Is it possible to install a strong antenna like a Winegard HD 8200 and add a amplifier to boost the signal strong enough to reach the house.

    @ Mark Leslie
    We used to live in Kailua-Kona (snowbird) for a couple of years and as far as I know only cable and satellite is available.

    Hey,

    If you scroll down, you’ll see that the page container cuts off. The reason for this is because an HTML comment is started near the page footer.

    This is great blog. Very informative. I have a question regarding hooking a Direct TV box to my internet via the SWM.

    Is it possible to purchase the SWM and the Brodband deca and format my setup myself. I was told they would charge 125 to come out and do it but it seems like it’s something I could do myself. If you could give a brief explanation that would be great.

    Thanks,
    Scott

  28. admin Says:

    @Scott:
    As far as I know they don’t offer a self install option. I understand trying to save $125, but probably better to just spend the money.

    My mom was a housewife (and boy was she a damn good one; Martha Stewart
    should commit hara kiri if she knew my mother, cuz my
    mom did it all first and better). If you have a multimedia room and you have
    placed this type of Pioneer Plasma HDTV in a dark
    room like those in home theaters, you can adjust its brightness so it will not strain your eyes while watching.
    This method of lighting allows certain areas of the screen to be dimmed,
    which makes all of the colors more vibrant.

    On top of this, unsaturated fats provide a slow release of
    energy, so unlike high sugar foods and refined carbohydrates, will keep
    you satiated for longer. It does not care where you live, but it certainly does seem to thrive on the way you live.
    ” If this happens, weight loss will slow down and it will become more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

    These and other areas in life can be resolved by using a reverse cell phone lookup.
    We needn’t suffer this method any longer, thanks to reverse phone search directories.

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it
    or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the
    message home a bit, but instead of that, this is wonderful blog.
    A great read. I’ll certainly be back.
