Yeah, I'd say pick the carpet first because that's gonna be the hardest thing to replace if the colors don't match. Maybe something a little more neutral or easy to work with like gray or blue to...

I'm not going to go so far as to say "garbage" but I will absolutely agree that wireless devices, for me and my husband, have historically never worked out too well. We had a couple cheaper...

Alright, I don't have nearly the experience with OTA broadcasting that you do but that really does just sound like some pretty typical cable company BS to me. I'm sure there's a lot of companies that...

Leaving any battery plugged in constantly will cause it to lose capacity eventually, I've learned this the hard way over a few different MP3 players and phones through the years. A lot of the...

Alright, I don't know enough about antennas to help with this discussion, but you raise kind of an interesting point about the disappearance of OTA broadcasting. Are the licensing fees beginning to...

You might also want to find out if there's other, similar channels you can try to tune to. There's an article here on Lifehacker that helps you figure out if there's any other over-the-air channels...

I assume the indoor rabbit ears probably aren't helping, they rarely do. Could it also be a problem with his digital signal converter, maybe? I remember my dad had a few problems with his not being...

Thanks so much for the advice! In your experience, if "minimal smoothing" causes jerkiness, is it bad enough to be distracting? Or at least is it LESS distracting than the horrible smoothing effect?...

Yeah, for right now the DVD player is just in the composite inputs, which doesn't look...great, to be honest. (We're also trying to figure out how to turn off the motion smoothing, which we hate!) I...
