    I'm at work, trying to finish up early and beat the blizzard that is supposed to hit some time this afternoon. on a side note, picked up a 19" flatscreen HD television for the camper since the current TV will be useless by the time I open the camper in April, The picture is amazing, I'm tempted to buy a bigger one for my house now.

    Well Krautdog the big O has gotten it changed to June 12. I was going to the local circuit city since they are going out of business and get me 2 flats for the MH. But since I am down with the flu I may have missed a deal of a life time :(

    I've been considering new tv's for the MH. Don't know how just yet to fit them into the space where the exisiting ones are? They are inside a cabinet like a cubicle. Hollis, you probably know what I mean. BTW, sorry you have the flu :( , hope your feeling better soon ! :)

    We just bought a 20 inch digital tube type flat screen for the 5th wheel. We bought the tube type because it fits in the cabinet without modification and it was cheap ($159). Only

    Re: Which Way Did They Go

    The flat screens I've seen are kinda rectangle, and the existiing tv is more square. Can I expect that I'll have a big gap at the top or are the digital tube types also square?

    hey Scooter I was looking at 27'' for the front and a 19'' for the bed room. I measure the opening in both (boxes) and went looking.

    The 20 inch Memorex I just bought from Target is square and fits the cabinet better than the original TV. The problem with it is it isn't loud enough. I don't know if all the Memorex's have a low volume or if I got one that isn't loud enough on some channels with the volume turned all the way up.

    Schools were closed here today, so I worked from home. I am on my standard schedule for checking in to the forums. Can someone point me to an official web site for the push back of the DTV conversion? The FCC site still says February 17!

    Becky it is in the Senate now and they will send it up to Obama to sign. the new date is June 12, Obama has asked for this given that some of the poor hasn't had time to convert over. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    Hollis, let us know what you come up with. I bought a tv set for the house and after setting it up I found out the volume was very low. It's now used for the grandkids and movies only.

    Lets see. Two days ago it was almost 80. Monday it was cold enough to use the fireplace in the stix and brix but by midnight the temp had warmed to 63. At 6 am Tues the temp had dropped to a balmy 61. I left for errands at 8 am and the temp had dropped to 44. Misty, foggy all day, then by dark temps had dropped into the 30's and its raining. Its now 30 and wind out of the N at 10 mph. I'm headed to Canton (TX) trade days Friday. Forecast calls for sun and temps in the 70's. All that said, like we say if you don't like our weather in TX, wait a few hours. I love my state....and no, not my state of confusion.

    It was cold here in TX last night, but it didn't rain ice, so we survived. ;)

    Hey DL,
    Is your TV close to your stereo? I always hook my audio up to the stereo too, at home and in the camper. My hearing is not so great, too many heavy metal concerts in my youth, but mostly I really like the sound on the stereo vs. the small TV speakers.

    Re: Which Way Did They Go

    Hey krautdog, It's close to the stereo, but in 1995 they failed to put a decent stero in my RV. It's so bad I don't even turn it on. The last time I was using it I couldn't get it to turn off. After finally getting it to shut down I opted to leave it down. :eek:

    Well, it looks like the DTV date of Feb. is still on. I heard there is still more to come, but it looks like they're not playing nice in D.C.
