I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com

Fairly weak copy, which has been the norm for me for a while. Sounds like MARS or something like that may be on the same frequency or near it.
