Mediacom pay per view

by benboy12 / August 16, 2006 12:03 PM PDT

We are getting Mediacom digital cable + HD package. If we use the mediacom On demand pay-per-view, will those movies be HD?

I just looked up mediacom, Your pay per movies will be in s.d. not very good. You may want to check out the dish network 211 system before you buy, You will have the advantage of receiving all your network channels in hi-def FREE or you can use an outside antenna because it has an over the air digital hi-def tuner, also a VOOM package for $5.00. There is also one pay per view channel in hi-def. Forget h.b.o. showtime etc because you will only have one channel in hi-def I have VOOM, the hi-def package, and an outside antenna and have lots of great hi-def programing to chose from and with an outside antenna I pick up 9 local hi-def stations Just make sure you use a h.d.m.i. cable and if your amp has no h.d.m.i. or d.v.i. switching then use a optical audio cable from your box to amplifier and then use a h.d.m.i. or d.v.i. cable to your t.v. good luck and let us know how everything works out for you stewee

HDMI question
by benboy12 / August 17, 2006 4:47 PM PDT

Thanks and about using the HDMI cables, I am going to. Our plasma has an optical output. Can I run the HDMI to the plasma and then and optical out to the reciever. I figured this would be better than running the optical cable from the box to the amp simply because since HDMI carries both audio and video, it would be sending out the audio signal in two different directions as opposed to using the TV to send it through because it would send it only one way. Make sense?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
