    Every day I stare at it with narrowed eyes. My largely unused inkjet printer sits on a corner of my desk getting dustier and dustier. When I do use it, it's just as likely as not to be out of ink or paper or need some lengthy maintenance process. My printer, it seems, hates me. I can say that the feeling is most definitely mutual. ...

    Found on the web... a new way to carry all the essential information with you. This comes from well-known tech forum DBSTalk.com, where satellite enthusiasts (myself included) have worked for ever a decade to make it better for regular folks with satellite TV.

    This time ...

    In Throwback Thursday, we're looking back at the articles we're most proud of from the first eight years of The Solid Signal Blog, and other stuff from the past that we think is cool.

    Stuff from the past that we think is cool. That's the mandate of The Solid Signal Blog's Throwback Thursday column, and when you talk about cool, it's hard to imagine a microphone cooler than the Shure Super 55. You may not know it by name but you will by sight...



    This is the microphone that pretty much screams rock and roll, right? It's the microphone you'd associate with Elvis, yet it's the mike that Meghan Trainor uses, at least in the videos.

    The coolest and most throwbacky part of this is that a little digging uncovered this Shure catalog from 1954 showing the original Super 55 along with its cool modern cousins, displayed prominently with tape heads and phonograph cartridges. Even the Shure logo on the front with its nuclear design is cool.

    Take a minute and remember when high tech meant big, chrome microphones and then leave a comment with your recollections of the Shure Super 55.

    Looking to create a headend system? We can help! Whether you need to distribute standard definition TV throughout your home, RV or vessel or if you're looking to create a complex high-definition distribution system for hundreds of TVs, your friends at Solid Signal can help you create a system that will do everything you need!

    Once upon a time, it was simple and cheap to distribute a TV signal over coax. That changed when HDTV came in, largely because of the complex legal battles over distributing HD signals. Some content providers are just so afraid that you will steal their programming from a hotel room that they insisted on many layers of content protection that make it very expensive to build a commercial-grade modulator and almost impossible to build a consumer-grade one.

    That makes choosing a modulator difficult and that's why you need a professional. Our team is ready to recommend the right modulator and help you choose programming that makes sense to you. We're there before, during, and after the sale and can even take care of all the installation and maintenance of the equipment.

    There are a lot of considerations: do you need something standard definition for now but high definition for later? Will you be distributing protected programming like ESPN or HBO? How far are you needing to go, and to how many TVs? Will you be incorporating digital signage into your system or other interactive devices? What about your choice of content provider? Will it be antenna, cable, satellite, fiber, internet, or something else? Don't make the decision by yourself when we are here to help you!

    Call Solid Signal today at 877.312.4547 with any question you have and we'll recommend the right solution for you!

    If you have a business, and that business needs multiple televisions, you either need a headend or you want one. It's that simple.

    A headend is a rack where all the tuners for all the TVs feed into a single device that lets you run one wire to each TV. It even could let you "loop through" wire ...

    Well not invisible but... pretty close. When you think about RF remotes, you have to realize that the signal they put out is part of the whole electromagnetic spectrum that includes light, X-rays, conventional broadcasting, cell phones, everything. Electromagnetic radiation is everywhere and it comes in many flavors. When we talk about the kind of radiation ...

    We're all back at our desks now and there's been plenty of time to absorb the impact of the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show. From the point of view of our Solid Signal fans, we saw the launch of weBoost and some very interesting product from DISH/Sling, but it really wasn't that exciting of a show. There were a lot of copycat products and a lot a lot of desperate-sounding ...
