Anybody know any stores that carry 303 aerospace protectant? I can't find any other interior protectant that isn't oily and leaves a OE new finish... Or have any ither ideas?

I just use armor all and then wipe it off with a microfiber. Leaves the interior panels looking clean and grease free.

Armorall stinks to high heaven and breaks the vinyl down with time.

I think they fixed the formula so it doesn't do this anymore but I have had issues with it discoloration or causing premature wear on door panels before... Also it attracts dist pretty badly but wipes clean easy, plus it is to shiny for me. I prefer a OE smell/finish that I can just keep layering on to keep it looking natural.

My car has a weekend date with a detailer very soon to get all prettied up!!

This is the truth. Horrible stuff...great marketing. I love Aerospace products and highly recommend it to anyone. It was able to rehydrate my old and UV cracked tires on my CRV to nearly new condition.

I use an HD antenna in my attic and get about 60 channels. 2/3's of them are in HD.

Plus I have the Logitech Revue and use that to stream movies and TV shows from the internet and my home network'd harddrive.

I'm in base housing, so technically a rented house. But mounting a good antenna isn't an issue.

I've gotta figure out when my DirecTV contract is up....

You can cancel it ..just tell 'em you're being deployed.

My antenna was like $40. You can download an app to find the best direction to point the antenna and you're golden.

I also have a few apps and websites for free web streaming minutes after new shows air.

Where'd you get your antenna and which one? I'm not a huge fan of cable or dish type stuff but I'll need something soon.

They also have some much stronger, bigger ones at radio shack.

As always, the interwebs has plenty to offer aswell.

I asked this last week.
That was probably one of the most horrific drives I've ever taken in my life not too bad on the way to MD (I left at 0500).. but on the way back: 4 hours in traffic for a cardboard truck that somehow caught on fire + the other 3 1/2 hours it took to actually get home. Who knew Chevy Chase was so famous in MD? Not I.

Anywho thanks for those who replied.

Apple TV you can control remotely from your Macbook.

HD antennas do work great if you buy a proper one and position it correctly, but it should be mentioned that running the cable can be a pita, you need to buy splitters for multiple TV's / rooms, and line attenuation / degradation is something to think about as well. Also some TV's take forever between switching channels (surfing) when using antennas.

Pros: Picture comes in more clear than HD on a cable box, sound is better, and you're watching programs in real time (cable and satellite have a 5-10 second delay compared to over the air).

Boxes top sets like Roku are starting to fade out and will be a thing of the past. Most mid grade and high end TV's being sold now can be plugged directly into your router or wireless internet connection and receive the same services that they do. If your TV can't, most likely your Blu-Ray, X-Box, or PS3 player can (if you own one).

Biggest Con to all of this.... no sports or DVR hence why I will most likely never get rid of cable because even though I know how to do all of this crap I'd go nuts with no sports and I... am... lazy... I work with electronics all damn day.

Note: in the next 3-4 years the sports thing will not be as much of a problem I already have MLB's service that allows me to watch any game anywhere on pretty much every device I own, but the NFL is ghey and sold their soul to Direct TV.

I have that. There is a remote for the iPhone and iPad too. The downside is no local channels.
