Arrow How do you get your TV signal?


Back in the day, there was just one way to watch TV in India - climb on the roof, and fiddle with the antenna till your little sister shouted, "Stop! I can see something!!" And then you jumped down, breaking your leg in the process, only to find some politician you never heard of had just died and so there would be nothing on TV except sad people playing sad shenaayis, for the next thirteen days!!

Now, of course, there are many more - less idiotic - ways to get the idiot box working. Lets see how people here get their daily dose of drama and dharma, sports and soaps, sting ops and sitcoms, Larry Kings and Item Queens, Tech gyaan and tele-dukaans!

Have a Cisco DVB box connected to the TV via the Slingbox which lets me watch my TV on my cellphone/laptop when I'm travelling.
