HDTV success in Bowmanville, Ontario !! (Clarington area)
I've just installed a Channel Master 4228 antenna on my roof, along with a Zenith ZENRTR1 rotor, going into a Samsung SIR-T451 HDTV tuner.
I was going to be happy w/ 6-10 channels, but I'm happy to report that I'm currently at 22 channels!
Picture quality is amazing. Probably about 30-50% better (subjectively) than DVD. Oh, and I think it's actually BETTER than the supposed Bell ExpressVu HDTV images I've seen at Future Shop, Best Buy, etc., which are so full of compression, artifacts, etc. to my eyes [am I the only one who thinks all HD store displays don't look HD???]
Funny thing is I don't even have an HD display: I use a Studio Experience Matinee 1HD front projector (Sanyo Z1 clone) that has a " 1/4 HD " chip (Native: 964x544 Pixels). That's HALF the resolution of true 1080i HD.
I'm cancelling Starchoice Monday. After cancelling all our Bell phone lines last week, (keeping with Rogers mobile and adding Vonage VOIP), I feel GREAT!!
[And now -- because I hate it when I do a search, including pertinent terms, yet come up short because people's posts are full of "industry" abbreviations (what's up with " *C "?!), and lack "too obvious" details -- here are some more key words to help you folks get this valuable info: Durham, Oshawa, Courtice, Newcastle; rotator, SIRT451,SIR T 451, CM4228.]
