2. "Reign of Fire" in a premium channel. Good Movie.

Then I tried the music channels.
Especially New Wave and Electronica.

3. How much are you paying?
$60/mo in my area. (that's a 2 year old figure, methinks it's $70 by now.)

7. OUCH!!!!
My condolances.

The cable industry is nothing more than a segregation of mini-monopolies. There is no true competition and they can charge what they like.

I wonder if they're hiring...

5. I tried Digital once. I got rid of it because it wasn't worth the cost..
$75.00 a month for the cheapest Digital package. :eyes:

6. Do you feed S-video or Component video to a high resolution monitor?
By high resolution monitor, that would include an "HDTV" monitor or any more conventional TV that has AUX inputs. My TV is rated for 600 lines resolution. I used "composite" (RCA phono jacks, the oldest style) to feed digital satellite video to my TV. It was much better than broadcast or cable.

Did you get a DVR/Tivo like device to store shows digitally?

I'm as excited as you are!!

10. it would probably benefit from using one of the AUX inputs
As opposed to using the "TV antenna" input, which is a threaded connector (type F).

13. Well of course DU
We only have DC on the TV downstairs. I wish I had it in my room.

I love the Game Show Network.
