Understanding Consumption Of Bandwidth For a COX ISP Connection W/ NO Cable TV OTA Type Connection
Thats right Cox Subscribers! I did it! Cut The Cord on cable TV with a 28.00 150 Mile outdoor digital antenna;
that can be controlled via remote control in case after dialing in your signal to Mt Soledads Translator perfect! You are still able to adjust your signal with a wireless infared remote (hope they upgrade to a bluetooth remote soon!) with the digital 28.00 motor diretionaly controlled antenna in which you mount to your chimney or gable with a 20' pole securely! after using UV rated zip ties and mounting your antenna on the pole via the antenna's mnfgr instructions!
Friends, its a perfect signal from Allied Gardens!! We get all the major networks and a few older movie broadcast stations (NBC and CBS Sister Stations as well as PBS< Cartoon Channel for the kids, and more!)
Your gryping about all those spanish providers in your scan for digital channels? EASY, go to your Ch Setup, either on your TIVO (HIGHLY RECOMENDED) and you can un check all stations in channel setup that you dont want (All those free pesky spanish stations-Unless you want them...hehehe) And then when you channel flip; the only ones that show up will appear on your channel line up! And perfect recption (Remember, tune to ***, and dial in that signal first thing pointed at Mt Soledad!!!! Very important!
And lock that antenna down when you get it there, once thats complete you should be able to recieve any San Diego channels you desire! Tidy up cable along side eaves, and drill hole behind your entertainment center on outside wall, where you will be bringing your cable through, and get a good quality cable jack and wall plate and vialo!! Your ready to connect your new digital antenna!
Fortunately with a TIVO Box ...just like Contour! Doh... Thats right, you can schedule up to 4 shows to record with a
TIVO BOLT! and set it up just like any DVR, and ...you can add more storage capacity with a SATA Connection ACC HD for more recording capacity! Cut the cord people! We are saving over 800.00 a year now!
Just an addition here...
