More TV mergers coming soon.

The FCC reversed the UHF Discount ruling, that allowed more ownership in the UHF band than the VHF. This is an old rule that was dropped after the move to digital, and some networks/station groups wanted put back so they could by more stations in a given market. The network I work for is one of thos...

Re: EO Pulsar 1KW problem

Probably a flaky capacitor in the works. You might try hitting all of the small ones with a heat gun. Or freeze spray. Or wait for the inevitable.

Re: Rivendell Radio Automaiton

At this point, I won't spend the time re-tagging my audio library. Now I'm writing a Java app to play the ss32 files. I got a ways to go before it's finished.

Re: Old analog Gear, need manuals, etc.

"Just reading the section on drawings solids is insane! Multiple passes just to get a cube on the screen! "

I remember having/using an early Chyron that took FOREVER to do a page with 6-7 lines of text.

Or maybe that was a dream. Or maybe I fell asleep waiting for the Chyron to finish.

Re: KVM Switch

I've had good use from the 2 and 4 port Trendnet models:
MCM Part #831-2416
Switch between Win7 and WinXP boxes without problem. Software installs automatic.
USB for these, tho. Not PS2.

Re: Rivendell Radio Automaiton

Turns out, the problem was the SD card I first used. Tried again to run it after imaging a different card, and now it runs and plays audio from both devices. Also, the OS no longer runs slow, which was my first clue about the card.
Now to try importing my 500+ SS32 audio files...

Re: Rivendell Radio Automaiton

I put the latest edition/build of Rivendell on my Pi3, after an overnight update (painfully slow) and adding VLC, I can get audio out of the HDMI on the monitor, but still no audio out of the USB audio device.
