Re: Extend, Mac, no router, no NAS

As stated, it should work but sometimes setting up the sharing to allow things can be tricky... I suggest a "travel" router to be used as a wifi bridge and sometimes even suggest yet another router (or switch) after that for "your" network and either wire or wifi connect to that. Think of it as an ...

Re: Hallmark, Discovery Channel, HGTV, TLC, Food Network, Animal Planet, Travel Channel & OWN

I am happy an content with the outcome. I shopped around and looked for providers that had the channels I watched. No one else out there had ESPN, CNN, FOX, Disney, Discovery and Food Network. For $35 and get something as close to a la carte as I could get was awesome. Then, this is all speculation...

Re: Let us choose what channels we want

This sounds like what may happen when you fall asleep at night and... dream. Unfortunately, the real world greeting you when you wake up is something very different.

Re: Network Regional Feeds

And you have first hand knowledge of this? You have worked for a streaming TV service and negotiated these types of agreements? An addon price might be less than what it would cost for basic cable because it is NOT a cheap option. If it was... then what is the point of streaming TV services? Most s...

Re: OTA Signal Measurements

Hopes are fading that I can pull in NBC (low VHF); the new ClearStream 4V seems to be working OK for HI-VHF; I won't have definitive signal quality numbers on ABC CBS PBS for a few days yet..I'm going to run an experiment putting the 4V on an extensable pole (telescoping pool pole) and point it dir...

Re: 8 channels down now?

TikiTV states they're in negotiations on these missing channels. https://www.tikilive.com/channel/disc-1 Is SiliconDust as well? Based on my recent experience here with Cox pushing a lot of channels like these into their pricey Contour package (which, BTW, I can't come close to affording) the likel...

Re: Channels Disappearing

Come to think of it, SiliconDust and ***** weren't the only ones that suffered from lost channels... Big cable giants and also satellite TV companies occasionally experienced lost channels too! Two very notable examples are dish and direct, they both had disputes at multiple occasions in the past w...

Re: How long should we wait?

You can still use the equipment as it was meant, with an antenna and recording your OTA to a NAS. That's how the equipment was marketed and used before PTV was even a dream. or if you cancel, you can always sell your equipment. NASs are useful for much more than a DVR. Use free Plex and store movie...
