RE: Directv ??? what are they doing???

Just a thought...Once a large number of people dump Dish/DTV satellite TV in favor of streaming, and current Internet Providers cannot provide sufficient bandwidth to support streaming... what will happen? Internet providers will have to make improvements to existing distribution systems at a cost of $$$? which will raise the cost of Internet service to the end user?

Directv ??? what are they doing???

Why all of a sudden, when using a standard 18" oval antenna connected to an R-22 (with HD) receiver, we are receiving HD (720p) programming on channels 202, 229, 254 and 360 plus several others.. No complaint, but have been told that our antenna, receiver, no B band converter setup would only receive 480 programming. When changing channels for example from 206 (480 light in receiver is on) to 360, (720 p) light on receiver comes on and the same is noted on the HD tv it is connected to.. Only several channels do this.. Same thing occurs when using our Winegard GM-1518 antenna when in the rv. The DTV online schedule schedule shows both the 360 FNCHD AND 360 FNC.. Just curious??

Any DropBox experts please

Lately, although I can access my Dropbox files OK, whenever I try to log in to my Dropbox account from any of my computers, I get the message displayed in attached photo.. I have searched the INET but none of it makes sense to me..I have tried using both Chrome and Firefox browsers.. same results.. Ideas.. If image does not appear.. It says.. Uh oh! Seems like this widget is not configured properly. localhost domain does not match any Chooser/Server domains. Register app domains on app settings.

Video Transfer.. Help

I have several DVD's that I want to put on my Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 for long flights ahead.. In the past this was no problem when using my older Samsung Tab 10.1 and a program called "DVD Catalyst".. All I had to do was pick the device the DVD was going to be transferred to, hit convert and it put the DVD content in the correct format for the Tab 10.1.. Now I have a Galaxy Samsung Galaxy Tab A7, and the "DVD Catalyst" program doesn't list it as an option for conversion.. I tried the 10.1 setting and it converted it, but once copied to the Tab A7, it was just blurry images.. so that Idea didn't work.. any suggestions on another free program to accomplish this OR anyone suggest another device choice in the DVD Catalyst that would be similar to the A&..

Directv NFL Pkg

I am sure there are DTV subscribers out there who have in the past had the NFL Sunday ticket Pkg.. This year as a 24 year DTV subscriber, I have seen nothing promoting the NFL PKG or even subscribing to it. I find it strange that DTV pushes MLB, NHL, and NBA pkgs.. but silence on NFL this year with season just over a month away.. any insight?

RE: Windows 11 ..headaches..

Thanks for the comments / inputs..But I want to use the computers internal built in speakers as well as an amplifier connected to the audio line out jack..seems as though Dell has decided it is one or the other.. Might just go back to the splitter on the line out jack to 2 separate amplifiers as with the old computer and forget the built in computer speakers.. Just trying to reduce clutter on desk..

Windows 11 ..headaches..

I have a new Dell All-in-one Windows 11 computer.. My question is sound.. I want to be able to used the audio out jack for the stereo/speakers on patio and at the same time listen to the computers speakers in my shop... I can get the audio out jack to supply output to the stereo but am unable to listen to computers built in speakers at same time.. and when I unplug the audio out jack, the computers internal speakers work.. I want to use both at same time but haven't figured out how to do it..Utube has been of no help...Anyone else experience or solve this Win 11 hurdle?

My trusty Dell Windows laptop was given last rites and is now headed for recycling graveyard.. My friend wants to give me his new seldom used Chromebook but I have reservations about it.. Surfing the Web would be no problem with the Chromebook, but most of my documents / spreadsheets that I have created and use regularly are done with MS Excel, MS Word and PowerPoint and stored in the cloud. Can these programs be installed on a Chromebook.. From what I have read, I must have a MS Account to do anything, but the my Office Suites on my home and shop computers were purchased outright and never had an account.. Just asking before I ask him to bring the Chromebook over.. Thanks

Cell Phone - Sending Test Message

Anyone else experiencing a problem when sending a TM (SMS/MMS)n with their cell phone.. Now it seems as though when you take a photo and want to send it in a TM, it takes anywhere from 20 -40 minutes to send.. Does not matter if phone is using wifi, or 4/5G connection. Never had this problem in the past, but do now with both my old phomr or new cell phone (Samsung/Android).. Just asking to see if anyone else has this problem??

Email Issues - Just looking for ideas..

I have been using the Windows "Thunderbird" email program for many years now and the DW is now comfortable with it. Within the last several weeks, our primary Email Account has been flooded with scam emails and after checking the address on each one, if spam I label it as trash. All of these emails contain [email protected] address as where they came from. This particular mailbox address is one that is used for other legitimate emails, but the number of SPAM/TRASH emails received is getting bigger each day. Thunderbird won't let you block a domain like but something has to be done. any suggestions / ideas. I don't want to use another email program as the training period for the DW would be beyond my patience and to delete this particular email box and use another one would take forever to notify those who correspond with us using it.. Maybe the answer is to just open a cold beer in the afternoon and instead of "Happy Hour", call it "Trash Cleaning Hour"..

Samsung Galaxy S3 Watch??

I have a S3 Samsung Galaxy Smart watch and have a question.. Hopefully you can answer my question.. I am an avid sports fan and would like to change the watch faces as the sports seasons change.. To do this, it seems as though I have to purchase and download the "Watchmaker" android app for my phone to apply various faces on my watch. Anyone have any experience with the Watchmaker App and is it worth it??

RE: Extending Wifi Range???

Thanks for inputs.. I used an inexpensive wifi extender and now all works great..

Extending Wifi Range???

My trailer is stored a small distance from the house. In view of ever increasing theft / vandalism, I installed a wifi camera near it. 50 % of the time, the camera works great and I can see / record anything going on...BUT the other 50% of the time, the camera looses wifi connection... would installing a wifi extender half way between the router and camera work or are wifi range extenders a waste of time and $$$? Appreciate any crime is on rise
