First off, some linkage. People interested in HDTV in the Twin Cities area should go take a look at TPT's bulletin board. Lots of good information, and it looks like techs from most or all of the local stations hang out there. 2-channel audio working fine, but Dolby Digital 5.1 dropping out? Mention it there and they'll fix it ;-)
Another site, HDTV Twin Cities has some info on how to get high definition video in this area, whether from cable, satellite, or air. They have a convenient listing of what formats the local stations are broadcasting in.
I tried to show off my HDTV tuner card to my family, since they were up for moving my brother into his dorm room, but the curse of technology demos hit me, and nothing happened with it.
I think I'm going to assemble a new box over the next week or two to test it out more thoroughly.
Okay, back to less costly things. Sort of.
I chatted with an old friend of mine from marching band. I guess she's getting married in about a month and a half, and is going nuts with She mentioned that some other people from the band had gotten hitched recently. I suppose that if I got around to catching up with people I knew then, I'd hear all sorts of similar stories, which is, y'know…
I'll have to get out and do something this weekend. I've been getting kind of bored.Posted by mike at August 30, 2003 06:26 PM | Hardware , School , TV | TrackBack
