    Cut the Cord and couldn't be happier

    In my case a splitter was degrading my signal, but I have multiple TVs and an Amazon FireCast DVR, so I picked up a distribution AMP instead. I found them in 4 and 8 port versions.

    Your mileage will verify with streaming. Using your existing cabling is pretty easy. just follow it back to the splitter and if needed replace it with a distribution amp. Hook your antenna to the input (of the splitter or amp) and you are good to go.

    Cut the Cord and couldn't be happier

    If you could get F to F (barrel?) connector to temporarily bypass your splitter allowing the antenna to be connected to only one TV and check your signal strength on the TV it might give you an idea. If you see an improvement I would recommend a distribution amp to replace your splitter...

    I do see where the recast streams to the fire devices in 720. It would be nice if there was an update that let you choose if you wanted to do this based on your network and equipment: Fire TV Recast transcodes 1080i streams to a resolution up to 1440 x 720p using H.264. This is to ensure that...

    We have the choice of 10-12Mb DSL for $30 or up to 1GB cable. We pay $59 all in for either 100 or 150Mb (can’t remember which). Not having reliable high speed internet does make it harder to say goodbye to cable.

    I get that. For us, we just care about the Seahawks, and every game is broadcast on local channels, so we are covered with the antenna. I bet in the near future there will be more streaming options for sports.

    Cut the Cord and couldn't be happier

    I think there are so many great shows available via Amazon/Netflix/Hulu that you will quickly replace anything you watch now. You bring up a good point about other fees. Comcast (Xfinity) was advertising what sounded like a pretty decent bundle price for internet and basic cable. When I read...

    Cut the Cord and couldn't be happier

    So far I really like it. Full disclosure I haven’t had TiVo. I also need to double check and see if there are system wide recording defaults (like end at one minute past, etc). You can set them per show being recorded, but I haven’t figured out if I can do it as a system default. While you...

    Cut the Cord and couldn't be happier

    After thinking about cutting the cord for a few months I decided to finally do it. Most of the shows my family watches are available on networks we can get via antenna at my home according to TVfool.com: I was mainly interested in the networks: ABC (UHF 38), NBC (UHF 48), CBS (UHF 51), FOX...
