  1. I liked Detachment a lot. Directed by Tony Kaye who was the guy who did American History X.
  2. Good site for checking what's avalaibleThis site is good too.
  3. When I first saw it, I liked it and I even mentioned it a page or two back in this thread. But now after using it, I hate it. I stream through my Mac Mini that's hooked up to my TV and it the webpage never opens correctly anymore. That might be more my problem than the websites so I gotta look into it some more.
  4. Who is that girl in your avatar. I may need to skip Netflix and hit up Google image search tonightGabrielle Union from a few years back. She was smoking hot back then.
  5. Looks like Netflix changed their website layout for the Watch Instantly section. I like it!
  6. I might have to add this. I remember liking it at first but stopped watching for some reason. I can't recall if it got too cheesy or whether it was just a bad timeslot for me.I was a big fan of that show when it was on and was upset when they canceled it. I might have to watch it again.
  7. I believe the entire series is on there. Been through the first 20 or so episodes in the last 2 days. Fantastic stuff!They also seem to have reformatted all of the TV shows so that every episode comes up under the same file selection instead of having different files for each season. Nice little upgrade in my opinion. I was a little alarmed when I saw my queue went from 100 to 50, but I was happy to discover they put all episodes under 1 file.That's why I thought it was only one season. I noticed it was multiple by seeing my instant queue drop like yours. I'm a fan though and it'll make it easier to browse when I don't know what I'm in the mood to watch.
  8. I haven't had to move my antenna to get any of the main networks, but I sometimes have to fiddle with it if I want ION to come in. I don't know if that channel is national or not though. So yeah, there is some manual maneuvering every once in a while and I'm assuming a severe storm of some sort would affect it as well. If you want something you don't have to worry about, then the outdoor antenna is what you would probably want. But I've been happy with the Terk.And why do you like the Amazon Prime Instant Video? Does it have different stuff than Netflix?
  9. I just found this blog and it seems to have some helpful stories and opinions: http://gigaom.com/video/?s=survival+stories The non survival story entries in the seem pretty useful and informative as well.
  10. I think this is the route I will go, via Mac Mini (as mentioned on page 1).Linky outlining a pretty great set-up. Yeah, follow that article. I love the Mac Mini and I have the eyetv and the loop mouse and they're both awesome......the eyetv especially.http://www.amazon.com/Elgato-EyeTV-Computer-Tuner-10020311/dp/B002XISW02/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1300144323&sr=8-3 http://www.amazon.com/Loop-Pointer-Mouse-connected-Projectors/dp/B001U1LX3Q/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1300144261&sr=8-1 What channels/content can you get from eyetv? Is it all content, or just what the broadcasting company puts on the web?It's the same channels you get through the antenna. Basically you run the antenna through the Mac Mini into your TV. What it DOES do for you is it gives you DVR functionality as well as an onscreen TV guide. Both of which are very cool and well worth the $80 or $90 that you would pay for it. You can only DVR one thing at a time though and your Mac Mini has to be on for it to record. It works in the "sleep" state though so that's what I usually do when I'm out. If you don't want to leave your computer on all the time, I think there's a way to make you Mac Mini turn on at certain times too but I haven't looked into that too much. The eyetv also allows you to pause and rewind live television.ouchHa! Yeah, you just have to prioritize. And you can't change the channel when it's recording. But if I ever wanted to watch TV whenever something was recording, I'd just watch something on Netflix or something online somewhere. It really is an easy thing to adjust to so don't let that scare you off from buying it.

  13. I bought this one:http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Terk+-+Omnidirectional+Amplified+UHF/VHF+Indoor+Antenna+-+Gloss+Black/9415215.p?id=1218101178216&skuId=9415215&cmp=RMX&ref=06&loc=01&ci_src=14110944&ci_sku=9415215 It's not perfect, but I get about 20+ channels. I live in the city though. So is antenna like this needed for every TV or can one antenna be used for multiple TV's?One can be used for as many as you can possibly connect.Yup, I have two TV's hooked up to one using a cable wire splitter. Reception is fine on both.
  14. Are you talking about where to download stuff? I haven't ventured into that realm yet but I plan to do a little research soon to find the best places. I mostly just stream stuff right now and I use clicker.com to find out where to find what I want to watch.
  15. It's not that I'm trying to pinch pennies. It's just that I only really watch about 1-2 hours of TV a night and everything I watch is available free online somewhere, so I figured why not save $85 a month? Most of the cable channels were junk and I would only really focus on a few non network ones. And I don't know if you realize how much is available out there via netflix, hulu, etc. I have no regrets getting rid of cable.

  17. If you have a Mac, you can use the Elgato EyeTv.Solutions if I don't have a Mac? (Other than - buy a Mac)Beats me. VCR? Ha! I love having the Mac hooked up to the TV though and it pays for itself in a months. You can find refurbished ones for $400 or so.
  18. Here's a list of reviews:http://www.hdtvantennalabs.com/hdtv-antenna-reviews.phpI have an indoor Terk one and it works great.And this link would tell you what you channels you would get:http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=29
  19. If you have a Mac, you can use the Elgato EyeTv.
  20. I thought you still needed to pay for TV service with a slingbox. Splain please.I haven't really looked into it too much because I don't think I want to inconveinence anyone, but I think you just need someone who pays for TV to use this. If you have a family member or friend with a cable box in a room that they don't use, you can just hook it up there.
  21. LOL. We bought a clock to put next to the TV after we got rid of the cable box.It's funny that's thing I miss the most. Ha! The guide is huge too. I used to like seeing what the show was about as well as what was on next. I suppose I could just look it up online, but I'd rather just have a button on my remote.
  22. I got rid of my cable two weeks ago and so far I don't miss it at all. I thought about my TV watching habits and I realized that most of the stuff I watch is on Network TV. With the antenna I get all the same channels not to mention better picture quality. I have a Blue Ray that gives me access to my Netflix, and I also bought a Mac Mini and I'm using that solely as a TV computer. I think the two things I miss the most are the clock that was on the cable box that told me the time and the guide function. I'm just going to buy a wall clock for my living room and I ordered the Elgato Eyetv to give me the guide as well as DVR functionality on my Mac Mini. But I agree, if I watched a ton of basketball/baseball/hockey, I'd be real hesitant to cancel it. But I mostly watch football. I am thinking about investing in a slingbox to be able to watch some of the games though.
  23. I don't know if this one has been mentioned or not yet, but I just started watching Survivors. It's a TV show from England about a flu that wipes out the majority of the worlds population. I've only seen the first two episodes, but so far so good!
