[QUOTE=debro;2217585]According to anecdotal evidence from the MATV guys in Oz, many of the older amplifier/aerial type signal boosters actually impede the (higher) frequencies used by digital TV signals, as they used to be unwanted noise
I’ve experienced no issues with digital though.[/QUOTE]
what “higher frequencies” would those be?
(Danger loaded rhetorical question alert)
Digital uses a different signal mode on the SAME frequency
It’s like switching from AM from FM on the SAME frequency.
I’ve heard more instant myth about the switch than I care to remember
The United states made a HUGE mistake 50-odd years ago when they
adopted NTSC in the first place… they “Early adopted” and grabbed up
technology that was greatly improved upon only months later.
It’s quite a thing to be in a freakin grass hut in africa and be seeing a better picture over the local PAL broadcast system than you’ve ever
seen at home in the states growing up line of sight to the Empire state building.
It’s about time the US did SOMETHING about our embarrassingly archaic system.
Personally I’ve got cable so I don’t really care.
