Frequently Asked Questions

    Has anyone tried what is called the TV Ears?
    I would like to know if anyone has tried what is called TV Ears. If so did you like them and do they really work?

    • ANSWER:
      I have had TV Ears for 2 years now and they work great. I have tried all types of wireless headsets over the years and none have compared with TV Ears. They have volume and tone controls on the headset and like I said, they work great. The foam ear tips do need replacing now and then and I would advise buying a box of those when and if you buy the TV Ears. Try EBay for TV ears. You may save some money.

    When we switch to DTV will my old TVs lose their signal when it rains, along with my satellite service?
    I have satielitte TV. When it rains/storms, the TV goes off. There is no signal…So then, I turn to my analog TV (rabbit ears) to see the weather.

    • ANSWER:
      If your satellite goes out when it rains, you should probably need some trees trimmed or the dish re-aimed because you must not be getting a strong signal. The only time I ever lose my service is during a very very heavy storm, and even then it’s usually only for a few minutes.

      Anyway, as long as you’re getting decent analog reception now, you will have no problems with the digital broadcasts, rain or shine. Digital TV and analog TV are broadcast over the same medium, so if you can get one, you can get the other. The only difference is how the image and sound are converted into a signal to be broadcast. Now, if you get shoddy analog reception and can just barely make out the weatherman’s outline on the screen you will probably not be able to get the digital broadcasts at all. You see, digital TV either works great and has crystal clear picture and sound, or it doesn’t work at all; there is no in between like with analog.

      They are already broadcast digital TV now, so you can get a tuner box and make the switch now to try it out before analog TV goes off the air next year.

      The only reason why it’s a problem with satellite is because the signal is being broadcast from very very far away and is fairly weak by the time it reaches your house. This is why the dish must be precisely aimed at the satellite and there can be no obstructions in the line of sight. When it rains, the rain drops actually attenuate the signal slightly, and heavy rain can cause a complete loss of signal.
