I’ve made a couple adjustments to the Tv setup. The HD cable box is out as is the Tivo. After a little difficulty with a CableCard (hint, that technologies is not ready but as the cable organizations, cable card makers, and television makers don’t talk to every other) I ended up acquiring a DVR from my cable company. It records in HD and outputs five.1 sound, which are big plusses (Tivo can’t do those points) and in technical terms it’s superior to Tivo, but the interface is ass. Actually, from a usability standpoint it is terrible. I’m going to live with it until one thing better comes along although.

What is the digital TV (DTV) transition?

The switch from analog to digital broadcast television is referred to as the digital TV (DTV) transition. In 1996, the U.S. Congress authorized the distribution of an additional broadcast channel to each broadcast TV station so that they could start a digital broadcast channel while simultaneously continuing their analog broadcast channel. Later, Congress has set June 12, 2009 as the final date that full-power television stations can broadcast in digital only. Your local broadcasters may make the transition before then, and some already have.

Why are we switching to DTV?

An important benefit of the switch to all-digital broadcasting is that it will free up parts of the valuable broadcast spectrum for public safety communications such as police, fire departments, and rescue squads. Also, some of the spectrum will be auctioned to companies that will be able to provide consumers with more advanced wireless services (such as wireless broadband).

Consumers also benefit because digital broadcasting allows stations to offer improved picture and sound quality, and digital is much more efficient than analog. For example, rather than being limited to providing one analog program, a broadcaster is able to offer a super sharp “high definition” (HD) digital program or multiple “standard definition” (SD) digital programs simultaneously through a process called “multicasting.” Multicasting allows broadcast stations to offer several channels of digital programming at the same time, using the same amount of spectrum required for one analog program. So, for example, while a station broadcasting in analog on channel 7 is only able to offer viewers one program, a station broadcasting in digital on channel 7 can offer viewers one digital program on channel 7-1, a second digital program on channel 7-2, a third digital program on channel 7-3, and so on. This means more programming choices for viewers. Further, DTV can provide interactive video and data services that are not possible with analog technology.

LBJ Go to Day: Mom & Anthony Parlor TV room 1966 60s * 1301 – 57st

Frances [Mom] and Anthony [me] in 1966 Brooklyn. Mom has a bandage on her leg and hand due to the fact she and I were on our corner watching Lyndon B. Johnson’s motorcade pass by. The motorcycles had been initial and she did not get out of the way in time. 1 of them threw her aside: the exhaust pipe nicked her leg and the manage bar smashed into her hand. Nobody stopped. I helped Mom off the ground. They began from the low end of 13th ave Boro Park, through component of Bensonhurst and into Bay Ridge. There was a recent write-up in The Home Reporter about this becoming 45 years ago since LBJ’s visit. I have pix of Ford – a secret sevice guy yanked me off a pedestrian visitors sign. We have no luck! Note the Big Zenith B&ampW television, 50s flooring and wallpaper, the wooden blinds from the 40s. Vintage Interior. In the early 70s we place an ugly drop ceiling up that created the room look tiny. No, I need to say much less big. We only still have that mirror in storage. Photo was taken utilizing a Brownie with a flashbulb mixed with sunlight causing those light stripes across Mom’s face. We got a COLOR Magnavox in 1966. Imagine: New Star Trek episodes in color as they came out on Sunday early evening! Barbra Eden looked nice in color too. -) Are YOU old sufficient to bear in mind the TV Repairman visits with his massive tube box and testers? Any comments or questions? Virtually forgot: In 1 of the photos in this series I am playing &quotPresident of the United States [POTUS] in a little cardboard chair I created. Too cute..what a swell head! PS: I had started to take photos with the very same Kodak Brownie camera at this time.
