re: Australians and Muslims not getting along - BigD45
[quote]Couldn't disagree more. Perhaps where you lived that may be the case, but look at whole countries like Singapore which is a hodge podge fruitbasket of different cultures and ethnicities. Malay, Indian, Sri Lankan, Western Brits/'Muricans, Indonesian, Filipino, even some Arabs sprinkled in. [/...

re: Anyone else with DirecTV Now issues today? - BigD45

re: Internet Speed Question - BigD45
[quote]We finally agree on something. 50 mbps uverse is most likely not fiber to your house.[/quote] My brother's house was built in 2013, so they laid fiber in the back of that subdivision when it was being built. He initially ordered 45 Mbps by accident. They ran fiber to the outside of his h...

re: Is AT&T U-verse Throttling Speeds During Upload? - BigD45
[quote]You will never see a faster speed available from AT&T unless fiber is run unfortunately. Our DSL network is distance limited. The further you are from the vrad the less speed you are able to get. If 25mbps is the fastest offering you can get at that particular address then it is somewhere bet...

re: Is AT&T U-verse Throttling Speeds During Upload? - BigD45
[quote]I think traditional uverse is only fiber to the neighborhood, whereas Verizon fios or att's new gigabit service is fiber directly to your house. Those speeds you are getting are uverse speeds.[/quote] Yeah, it's fiber to the VRAD and copper to the home....

re: Is AT&T U-verse Throttling Speeds During Upload? - BigD45
[quote]The installer did mention that it's only fiber optic to the box outside. So I understand that having a bunch of things connected in my home can cause a decrease in speed. Last night while on the phone with tech support I was getting a blazing fast 0.9 Mbps. They restarted my modem remotel...

[quote]I'm supposed to get 18 Mbps. That already made me wary as the salesman advertised 50.[/quote] A guy by the handle of "BottleGnome" that posts here works for at&t. He may be able to shed some light on your issue. If you search his posts, I believe he mentioned how the copper from the ...

re: Cox Charging for Data Useage in home - BigD45
Yep, all they're doing is trying to recoup former TV subscribers. I say that, and I used to work for the evil Comcast. If all goes the way I think it will in the next couple of years, the cable giants' days are numbered. at&t and, believe it or not, Dish Network will be sitting pretty. We sh...

re: Help splicing/splitting coaxial cable - BigD45
[quote]Damnit. Coax in the attic has a barrel connector which apparently got knocked loose when I cut it to make the splitter. Ran the line so long ago I forgot I had a barrel connection in the line at all. Total coincidence it loosened at the same time i was working on the line. What a waste of tim...

re: Help splicing/splitting coaxial cable - BigD45
[quote]ETA: you may have grabbed a satellite-specific splitter, which is intended for frequencies above broadcast.[/quote] Yep, a diplexer can screw over some folks. It baffles the cable TV installers. It just separates the 950-2150 satellite signal from the UHF/VHF analog backfeed for TV 2 on ...

re: Help splicing/splitting coaxial cable - BigD45
[quote]I cut the coax from the hd antenna in my attic and used a compression tool to add new connectors to each of the new ends so I could split the signal to 2 TVs. I've done this before but this time I lost the signal to both TVs. Any possible way I could have screwed this up? Seems like it's ...

re: Okay to have electrician install cable outlet? - BigD45
[quote]This isn't a job that you try to find the cheapest guy for. You need someone who knows low voltage and knows construction so they'll have a good idea what is behind your walls and between the floors of the house. From your description drywall is going to have to be cut to complete the run. It...
