RE: tv tuner

My guess is that you don't have the settings correct on the non-working TV. Since it works with 1 TV but not the other, it has nothing to do with cabling or your booster. It certainly could be the TV tuner. If so, you need a new TV. The TV that works may have a QAM tuner while the other one may not. A QAM tuner is for digital cable. You can add an external QAM tuner.

RE: Coronavirus practical issues

In the meantime, here's what others are saying about the Imperial College Study . . . Have you read it? It’s an interesting analysis. The description of the transition model (infectious for 12hrs before the onset of symptoms) and Table 1 are enlightening. The death rates in Table 1 are very similar to this JAMA summary of the China cases.

RE: Coronavirus practical issues

The big take away is - every time some one try to lay some number out about this, its all just speculation with no basis in fact. Just like I originally said. You should probably contact the CDC or WHO and share your expertise. In the meantime, here's what others are saying about the Imperial College Study . . .

RE: Coronavirus practical issues

I don't understand did someone with all knowledge suddenly say this flu is the end of the world or something? It's weird because it's no worse than a common yearly flu season flu. Seasonal flu has a 0.1% death rate. Currently, COVID-19 has over a 3% death rate. That makes COVID-19 30 times more deadly. And if you're over 70, the death rate jumps to 8%, and over 80, the death rate is 15%. Finally, there isn't any vaccine or treatment for this new flu.How do you know what the death rate is when they don't even know how many cases there are. If there are 3 times as many cases as being reported (remember 80% no symptoms or mild symptoms), then your death rate goes down dramatically. Only 16,500 people out of 333 million have been tested. You numbers are pure speculation and have no basis in fact. My numbers came from the March 3rd WHO report, but, unfortunately, it's old news now. Here's the "most significant conclusion" from the March 16 Imperial College Report: In the most effective mitigation strategy examined, which leads to a single, relatively short epidemic (case isolation, household quarantine and social distancing of the elderly), the surge limits for both general ward and ICU beds would be exceeded by at least 8-fold under the more optimistic scenario for critical care requirements that we examined. In addition, even if all patients were able to be treated, we predict there would still be in the order of 250,000 deaths in GB, and 1.1-1.2 million in the US.

RE: Is Socializing a Dying Thing in the RV Community?

A long time ago my parents told me, "If you don't have something 'good' to say about someone, keep your mouth shut". I think that's what Thumper said to Bambi. It works in a children's movie.

RE: Coronavirus practical issues

As far as I know, the "regular flus" kill thousands in the U.S. every year and you hear little hoopla about it in the news every year that it happens. COVID-19 is deadlier than seasonal flu.

RE: Coronavirus practical issues

Other than dying from it, I can't imagine this virus being much worse to survive than what we just went through. That's the whole point, though, isn't it?

The WHO and the CDC have played so many games with stats they are worse than useless. So you're the guy who has all the answers?

Sure would be nice if they knew the parameters of this thing this time around. At 77 I know many good folks at extreme risk, maybe… Advice from the CDC

RE: Anyone canceling trips due to Corona virus?

Why do you think you are going to get it? there are over 334 million people in the US. What makes you so sure that you will be part of the .0001 percent that will get it???? .0001% of 339 million (current US population) = 339 people. The current COVID-19 cases for the US is 808. So it's more like .00024%, but, you're right, it's a small number. And over 80% of the ones that do get it recover with out any medical treatment. Man don't panic. Stop watching CNN. live your life. You are in no more danger than you were in December It's uncertain how high the COVID-19 cases will get. If COVID-19 burns out when the weather gets warmer (like other flus), then the infected may stay fairly low. However, it COVID-19 doesn't stop growing in Spring, then all bets are off. If Harvard epidemiologist Marc Lipsitch is right, then 40 to 70% of the world adult population could get coronavirus. If you're keeping score, for the US that would be between 131 to 229 million cases. Hope you're right. Finally, about that 80%. In one sense, it's great that most COVID-19 cases are mild. But in the early stages of infection, many people don't even know they're infected . . . and they unknowingly walk around spreading it. Very bad mojo.

RE: Anyone canceling trips due to Corona virus?

Seems like a lot of people WANT this to be more than it is and feast on the media blowing it out of proportion. And then there are the people who WANT this to be all about the media.

RE: 2006 country coach inspire 360

Check out Country Coach specific forums. When we were looking at CCs some years ago, I steered clear of the whole Inspire line. I think the line was introduced when National RV bought CC. Inspires seemed like cheap CCs. But better to ask owners.

RE: Coronavirus

Please keep in mind the infection/mortality rates for the "regular" flu are much higher than COVID-19, at least at this point in time: https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/burden/preliminary-in-season-estimates.htm Actually we don't know that. We need more information. Considering real numbers, it's true that COVID-19 has killed fewer than seasonal flu. Since we're early in this disease outbreak we don't have accurate numbers of those infected with COVID-19 especially in the US since we have tested so few people. Mortality rates are usually expressed as a percentage, the number of people who die divided by the number that get infected. The evidence at this point is that the coronavirus is more deadly (higher mortality rate) than seasonal flu. Highlights from this JAMA report of over 70,000 Chinese coronavirus cases: In China, Coronavirus spread from a single city to the entire country in 30 days. 80% of the cases were mild 14% of the cases were severe 5% of the cases were critical (about 50% of these patients died) While the overall fatality rate was 2.3%, this rate increased with age: 8% fatality rate for patients aged 70 - 79 14.8% fatality rate for patients aged 80 and greater As has been mentioned the seasonal flu death rate is 0.1%. However, the 1918 flu pandemic was at 2%.

RE: How about Adobe Illustrator alternatives for mac

Why not just kick the limited "MAC" to the curb and move to all Windows PC, then you do not have to scrape around with hodgepodge hokey patches and Windows PC software is more readily available to boot? "hodgepodge hokey patches"? You obviously don't know what you're talking about.

RE: Best RV trip planner

I use RV Trip Wizard. Works great for me. Only caveat is that it is not free. X4 Wonderful program. I've been using it for a couple of years now. The annual price is very reasonable. x5.

RE: How about Adobe Illustrator alternatives for mac

I have Parallels Windows XP and Windows 7 installed on my iMac which allows me to run Windows software. I use these Windows versions to run Illustrator, Photoshop, and Framemaker. So don't confine your search to just Mac software.

RE: Homeless people coming to your favorite campground!

Moderators - unfortunately might be time to shut this one down. There are jerks across the spectrum in America, just like there are good, kind people across the spectrum. I would love our country to be kinder and more empathetic, but don’t think we should tolerate intolerance. People that “love to piss others off” are hurting our country regardless of where they are on the socioeconomic ladder. Yep, this thread was bad from the get go. However, more sympathetic posts than usual for nasty General RVing Issues threads. There's hope.

RE: wifiranger Converge - Do you like it?

I am considering the WifiRanger Converge line-up of upgradeable rooftop boosters with an indoor wifi router. Has anyone here used one of these setups? OP, don't you love it. Not one responder actually had any Convergence experience, but did it stop them from responding? Try the MIRC Forums. You'll have to become a paying member to join, but you get what you pay for.

RE: Best charge controllers..

EPsolar... ( EPever and ACCOPOWER or such same company?) I see what looks like 3 different designs all called Tracer series. EPsolar 3210AN $132 Saw a video where it was opened up. Seemed Decent quallity. Sealed/Gel/flooded MPPT 30A EPsolar Tracer 3215BN. $138 Sealed/flooded/gel/user MPPT 30A This seems similar to above, but has cast aluminum case with fins Tracer 5210BPL. $80? 46v/15A Sealed/gel/flood/Li/user Ah, the race to the bottom.
