    DIRECTV's new "All Seasons" search has quite a few fans. It hit Genie users in the last update and it gives a powerful new way to find programs that are on multiple channels. You can very easily set up a recurring recording that will find the current season, future seasons, or even past seasons of shows. It's perfect for sports events like March Madness that occur on multiple channels, ...

    Volume, volume, volume. Your regular TV DVR is designed to record at most five or six things, while a security DVR could record 24 or more camera feeds at the same time. On the other hand, a security DVR is not designed to decode the feeds from your cable or satellite company. They really are two different things even though they have the same name.

    If you need a security or surveillance system, Solid Signal has a wide variety of security DVRs in many different price ranges designed to meet whatever your need is, whether it's simple office surveillance or something really complex with multiple cameras, motion detection and the ability to alert your smartphone to what's going on.

    If you need a complete system, you might want to consider the pre-packaged kits we have available as well. Whether you just need something like a babycam or something capable of watching your whole warehouse, we have the parts and accessories you need!

    If soccer's your thing, you'll be thrilled to know that the MLS Direct Kick package will be free on DIRECTV starting Friday and going all the way until Sunday, March 15. Just tune to channels 471-476 for all the soccer action including the season opener between Los Angeles and Chicago, and continuing on for all the season openers nationwide!

    Soccer is an increasing part of our lives in the United States, with more and more of our kids opting for soccer instead of baseball or football. That brings soccer into more homes and increases the awareness of professional soccer and the many teams in the MLS that bring over 200 games this season!

    Check out all the action and if you're interested, visit DIRECTV.com to add MLS Direct Kick to your DIRECTV package.

    This week we're taking a look at obsolete communications technologies. No matter what it is, everything was high tech at one time.

    It's hard to believe this was ever high tech, but at one time the teletype was the absolute height of computer communications. What's even more amazing is that most teletypes will still work with even ...

    OK the title might be overselling things a bit. Honestly, though, that {DASH} button on your remote might be the most powerful button you're not using. First of all let's all get on the same page. The {DASH} button is that one to the left of the "0" and under the "7." On the older remotes, it's rather nicely labeled as "DASH" in little letters ...

    It's easier than ever to unlock your cell phone. New guidelines imposed on carriers now mean that a cell phone company has to let you unlock your cell phone, as long as you do actually own it. If you're on a payment plan then you kind of have to wait, or you have to do it yourself. But for all the coverage that there's been on the ...
