Re: Looking to gain CIII-29, CICO-32, and CHWI-16. Antenna recommendations?

I can get CHWI-16 reliably indoors with a Clearstream 2Max in Melvindale. But only if the side of the antenna is touching the wall closest to the transmitter in Leamington. When I use an amp, I can just hang it with a Command hook in a more practical location. Can't comment on CIII-29, I live closer...

Re: WHNE 14.12

All 12 subs on WHNE are a waste they should call it WASTE TV 14, sort of reminds me of the Weird Al movie from the 80’s called UHF is Weird Al running WHNE? They do have GetTV, I don't think that's a waste 90% of programming on Heartland (14.12) appears to be reruns of obscure shows from The Nashvi...

Re: Aurora Borealis Possible In Michigan This Weekend

Aurora borealis? At this time of day? At this time of year? In this part of the country? Localized entirely within your kitchen?

Re: Which Metro Detroit cities are declining and which are improving?

Here's why I chose Canton: 1 - Schools. Part of the city is served by Westland-Wayne Community Schools (lousy). The other part of the city is served by Plymouth-Canton Community Schools (five gazillion students at the high school). 2 - Adjacent communities. Canton has Van Buren Twp on one side and ...

Re: WHNE 14.12

I've been able to make Heartland look better on my Insignia TV by adjusting the picture settings. What I did was increase brightness, contrast, and color all to 65% of the maximum setting; while decreasing sharpness to 30% of the maximum setting to make the artifacts less visible. You also want to t...

I was watching Red Green on Heartland today, and the picture quality actually looked better.

Re: WHNE 14.12

I don't even know what the bitrates are now, on any of the channels, but 14.12 definitely has to be under 0.4 Mbps. And I know HSN 2, JTV, SBN, and The Bob are definitely eating up more bits than they need. They should have half the channels (preferably 14.3, .4, .5, .8, .10, and .11) run at 0.8 Mbp...

Re: Which Metro Detroit cities are declining and which are improving?

Well, with Hamtramck, there's no where to go but up. Besides, I've heard it's actually improving, maybe not appearance-wise.

Re: Which Metro Detroit cities are declining and which are improving?

What are you basing these judgements on? I'm going to add Hazel Park to the improving list and Roseville to the declining list. I actually think Taylor is improving. It seems like a good time to look at the Judgemental Map of Metro Detroit and see how the area has evolved in 5 years. From what the ...

Nothing, but neither does the thread about the Marysville city council candidate.

WHNE 14.12

WHNE's Heartland stream on 14.12 is really compressed. It's a darn shame too because I really like the Red Green Show. It's still watchable, but only slightly. They should really allocate more bits to Heartland and less to those infomercial channels. Or just remove 14.10, it just simulcasts 14.2 any...

Re: Holy Shnikies! What’s wrong with that Marysville council candidate?

Want to see a really depressing town? Take U.S. 23 south-southeast of Toledo and drive through Fostoria sometime. Screw that, go to Delray. Many of the streets (like Lyle and Pulaski) are gone in favor of a water treatment plant. When you go down Jefferson and turn left on Cottrell, then congratula...
