Can you buy your own box to receive the HD TV signal if you have just purchased a HD TV and have not signed up for HD TV service from your cable company yet?

Please note that you don't have to have HD TV service to play HD TV games, but you do to watch high definition television. If your TV is an "HDTV" (as opposed to a "HD ready TV"), then the Radio Shack box isn't going to do you any good. There are two ways that you might be able to get HDTV programing without buying HD cable service. Your HDTV should have a digtial over the air tuner (ATSC in the US). If you are located in an area were you can get TV reception with an antenna, then just hook up a TV antenna to your HDTV and tune into a HDTV broadcast. Some cable systems include non-premium digial channels in a format called QAM. Most HDTVs have a QAM tuner built into them. Just connect your HDTV directly to your cable outlet (not through a converter box) and scan for digital cable channels.

Yes. Dish Networks offers internet service through a company called HughesNet. The transmit and receive devices are located outside in the form of a dish, and the signals are carried to an Indoor Receive Unit and Indoor Transfer Unit which carry the signal to your computer.

No. But in order to take advantage of everything that's encoded in the HD radio signal, you do need to have the special receiver.

Some advantages of cable television service over satellite service are as follows: Cable service is normally underground or run to your home by wires, so when there is a bad storm or weather you will still receive a good signal.

Normally, when you have coverage and your phone is on, your phone regularly sends a "ping", or small signal telling the provider that your phone is on and can receive calls.When you turn your phone off, your phone sends a signal to your provider notifying them that your phone is off. When you lose coverage, your provider notices that it is not receiving pings from you and it did not receive the power-off signal.

It depends on the repeater. Those that receive a signal, buffer it in real time and pass it on as a digital signal will reduce the effects of attenuation. Those that receive a signal and regenerate it with a new clock signal will generally eliminate the effects of attenuation completely.The type of repeater used depends on where and how it is used as well as the signal that is being transmitted.
