    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    I have Spectrum, and let me explain my set up. Two boxes hooked to cable and getting most of the Spectrum channels. 3 or 4 tv's connected to Spectrum Wi-Fi TV thru Roku connectors. I bought the Roku's either at Wal-Mart or on Amazon. They all work fine. The tv's thru Roku are getting the TV signals from the Wi-fi router. It is the cheaper way to go because each box has a monthly fee. The only draw backs are I have two tranmitters on one tv and three on another (because of a soundbar). It take a little longer to get to the channels, and a different number sequence. Only one time did the Spectrum Wi-Fi tv go out. It was apparently a nation-wide outage and came back on. I am saving $100 a month over what I was paying AT&T U-verse. I'm happy. I mainly just watch 3 or 4 channels on the Roku so it is not problem. Some of my options were 6 or 12 month specials, so when my bill goes up, I can eliminate the 2nd box and have roku in the kitchen. I also received a $200 rebate for signing up, I think. Plenty of channels on box and roku. A warning only certain smart tv's work with Spectrum TV, those with Roku built in, Roku, and I think the technician said Samsung Smart TV's. I really have not taken the itme to study the Roku menus, etc. Wi-fi is close to 500 mhz. Fast.

    Diane, I just thought of something else. AT& T has U-Verse, then they were pushing Dish (which they bought), now they are pushing AT&T TV, which I think is like Spectrum Wi-Fi TV. TV from Wi-fi. Benefit of Spectrum is the speed.
    AT&T's fastest if 50 mhz, Spectrum 300-500mhz. Never a problem wiht signals. I would go Spectrum because of wi-fi speed.

    thanks Frank. I'm going to read your explanation a few times until it sinks in. But I'm happy to know you are able to do all those things. We have had Charter/Spectrum since almost the beginning of cable back in the early 90's. Or maybe it was the late 80's...I do know we got it to watch Crossfire back then.

    Since I was talking how reliable it was, tonight one Roku was not working. First time. Disconnected it and it came back on. I put some password in when I installed them, but don't have them I did not have to do anything special. Worked.
