As seen on TV

Trekka,
I'm headed ou this weekend, I'll try and plug in the "dinner dish) and see what happens.

Eryka,
Hey!! How are you doing? We're doing good. Working on electronics and wood right now. We're trying to plan a trip up to Annapolis to have some rigging work done before summer is over. We'll have to ket you know when we're headed up!

eryka Hi Shack! Haven't seen you around for a while, delighted to hear you've settled into living aboard so well!

Trekka Shack,

Being tucked in there behind that bluff, I am sure broadcast tv is terrible when dockside, probably impossible for the ATSC digital channels. But out on the river, anchored, the line of site to the DC tv transimtters should be at least "ok". There are at present more digital channels being b'cast than analog. That's why I am curious.

Trekka,
Yes, of course a TV is just ballast w/o a signal. We use a DirectTV antenna at the doc. When we're out, don't watch much, but if we feel like it we'll play some stuff off the DVR. There is usually entertaining stuff in there that we forgot we recorded. DVD's played through our laptop to the TV until got a cheapy little DVD player at Wal-Mart. We have the DirecTV/DVR and slim little DVD player behind the sette. DVR remote is RF (that helps).

We have a marine TV anternna up on the mast (a 9" dinner plate that says "Interceptor"). We got really bad broadcast reception from it until we switched to the Satellite service. We haven't tried re-hooking up the "Interceptor" away from the dock. I'll give it a try though - I'm curious.

MTBOAT
We do have great internet signal out at anchor, and I'd like to check out your recommendation. Sounds cool.

I'd recommend the Verizon AirCard to anyone looking for a wire-free and a WiFi free connection.

mtboat I am using my laptop, and besides playing dvd's on it, I watch tv on a site called SurfTheChannel. It has every tv show you would ever want to watch, and also movies. Lots. Updated constantly.

kpdii We were just going to get a HDTV USB card and max memory out for the laptop.
