HD Finally (Actually) Installed

My 5-LNB satellite dish has been installed and I am now enjoying high-definition local content. Woohoo!

Some television shows are noticeably better, some only marginally. Most football games are incredible in high def, even 720p. I wish I had known that Pittsburgh's local channels were available in high definition sooner. I'd have switched months ago.

I also ran a second pair of lines from outside the house to inside the house, then connected them to two lines I had in the master bedroom. The old DirecTiVo is now there with a really old, really decrepit 19" TV with a single coaxial input. Yeah… but, worst case, it'll record shows if the HD-DVR from DirecTV goofs anything up.
