Looking at a larger tv. I would like it to have a built in signal stength meter. When I find a tv that I like, I download the manual for it. Several brands reference signal strength indicators by various names in their manuals. My only source for this information seems to be from the manuals. I am leaning toward a 65” Samsung. When I go into my Best Buy, they either have never heard this menu item or they can not assure me that a partilcular model has the Signal Information option. They can not display or demo that option because I do not think the option shows up on the menu unless the tv is connected to an antenna with a DTV signal and most of their TVs are not connected to an antenna. I contacted Samsung and they verified that their TVs in the USA have a Signal Information menu selection and all indications are that it is what I am after. So I reckon that I will take my Ipad with the manual up to Best Buy and see what I can find out.
Best Buy’s prices did not change much over Black Friday, They mainly packaged the TVs with discounted installaion and discounted extended warantees. They had some good prices on models they are phasing out but most of those are gone now. Now that I have the money, I’ll see what happens closer to Christmas.
Unless I am missing something, most of the new features will not be of much value to me until ATSC comes along and then everything will change. Going to 1080p will double my resolution but I am not certain if anything other than more HDMI ports are of benefit to me.
Any suggestions on what to look for will be appreciated…
I have not touched my antenna or missed recording a show since the Repack in Dallas, a few months ago.
