I bought an el cheapo standard definition set top box. For the first time in my life, I have perfect reception of all 5 free to air channels, and 2 extra ones. Its not much, I dont wanna pay the 70 bucks a month for cable tv, as I only watch it for a couple of hours a night, but I am a happy man!

Whenever an Aussie goes to the States, the first day is always spent flicking through TV channels.

when i went down under, i spent time catching up on the shows i'd missed smiley.  what kind of crazy people are we that we have 200 channels to watch?  on Monday, i will join you in the digital world.  our Christmas gift to ourselves was a flat screen.  i have been told that the HD will be awesome. now i wonder, will we all get fat sitting in front of these things?

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I have a digital receiver connected to my computer. Three cannels are all I can get. I am Happy for that.

I spoke too soon, signal keeps dropping out.

I have a 5.1 sound system, a TV, 2 x dvd players and a VCR and now the set top box. I have more cables than you can poke one of the 6 remotes at. I am so confuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuused now.

One of the remotes is a universal, but doesnt do everything. More money required!
