    I actually made one for a television at my workplace, we haven't had it hooked up in over 4 years so I decided to make an antenna for it so that my coworkers( most of whom range from high school graduates to very high-ups in the Honda corporation) will have something to watch when we have downtime vs sitting there and waiting on email or conference calls. Don't try to pretend that I'm a child

    Your MPGH profile says your 18. 18 is young, and that's what I based my statement on. Even I'm considered a kid by a 60 yr old, making age a relative statement, no? I teach at a university a couple classes a year, and since <I assume> this audience heavily overlaps the ones in my class, I thought I'd share to spark your (pl.) own creativity. I do random projects like this all the time and they always seem to be intrigued. No need for you to be sarcastically demeaning in your first comment

    Anyway, no one seems to read any of what I said and are stuck on the whole foil thing because they're just looking at the picture, so I'll just have to post the end product later this week once I have the designs and cosmetic balance optimized.

    The bigger you make your board, the better the signal you'll catch, that's the issue with digital encoding waves, you have to catch the entire wave to get a signal or you won't be able to see anything. Walls and trees and stuff cause interference, the best way to catch any radio wave is by placing it as high as possible (on the roof).

    I don't even watch TV, don't got time to watch on anyone else's schedule so I just download and watch anything I want when I get a chance. I can stream it to my TV just by using a HDMI cable.

    Very smart idea.

    I personally don't watch tv at all but for those that do, this is EXTREMELY good.

    "Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves you—even, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers, and triumphs over all opposition. Religions are places to stand and look and act, vantage points from which to view the world. So none of this is happening. Such things could not occur. Never a word of it is literally true.”

    Netflix offers almost nothing compared to Hulu. I looked into both. If you exclusively watch movies, Netflix is ok. But if you watch TV, Netflix has hardly anything at all but Hulu has literally thousands of shows to choose from. Also, episodes are available on Hulu 24 hours after they've been newly aired, where Netflix only releases full seasons once the next one has already started.

    I wouldn't even wast my money on hulu or netflix. Tv is a thing of the past and I don't know how it hasn't died yet. Just get internet and use www.letmewatchthis.com or www.movie25.com

    Pretty damn cool setup man, been thinking about doing something similar to save cash. I barely even watch TV, so I'm wasting over $100 a month on DirecTV and a DVR. So it's only a one time purchase, and you can pick up base channels with no extra costs, or is there a monthly fee of some kind involved?

    Honestly if this Time Warner/Comcast merger goes through, this might not be a bad idea, or switch to Verizon FIOS. Most of my shows I get online, so I don't really watch much live TV, other than CNN/MSNBC. However if the merger DOES go through, and my local cable provider (Owned by Time Warner) starts capping bandwidth or raises their prices, I have to look for alternatives. Already paying close to $130 a month for 60mpbs connection and 3 Digital Cable boxes. Honestly this reminds me of the days where coat hangers were used as antennas. lol

    What's funny, is your set up is exactly mine. Except I'm getting another cable box for my room.
