How do you get TV reception in the truck? Satellite? Antenna?
I have Dish Network at home. Do Dish Network and DirecTV have any kind of a setup for truck drivers?
you could use an antenna until feb of 2009 after that you will not be able to. I seen lots of guys that have dish network hooked up in their trucks. they just set it up and take down every time they park.
work harder, millions on welfare are counting on you !
You will still be able to use an antenna after feb 2009. Just need a converter or a digital TV. I use my laptop with a $50.00 usb tv tuner that I hook to an antenna mounted on the mirror. I got over 30 channels about 10 of which were High Def in N Chicago the other night.
I have typical antenna TV. I use an external "V" antenna mounted on my right mirror.
Obviously how many channels and the quality of the channels received depends on your proximity to a city that broadcasts air TV.
It is very helpful if you TV or the tuner that is used is capably of self scanning for the local TV channels.
If you are going to be using a TV to receive over the air broadcasts or even think you might once in a while do yourself a favor and go and apply for the government coupon for a converter box and then get one before the Feb 2009 switch over to all digital signals.
Finding the right trucking company is like finding the right person to marry. I really comes down to finding one whose BS you can put up with and who can put up wih yours.
only three things i don't like about vuqube is
1st is the $700 ($629 if you find it now sale) just for the dish.
2nd is the lag time when you channel surf going from one sat to the other like the old C-BAND 10' dish
3rd will not work with my dvr setup (it can't record) from both sat's at the sametime, like my dish can.
I bought a new computer for the truck last week (it'll be here on Monday). So, since I went to a regular computer, I needed to get a new monitor as well (I used a 17" display on the laptop before). So, I just got a 22" widescreen LCD. All I can say is "OMG!!!"
At 1440x900 resolution, I can sit 6 feet away from the monitor and read the web page.
after the first 2 answer to this question-i'm confused. I drive a FL Columbia with a standard(i guess) pole antenna for the Tv.I have a 15" LCD tv-will I need a different type antenna to pick up the digital broad-cast signal or a converter box-i know the tv is digital.Appreciate any info
