IOW, given a decent over-the-air (OTA) HD digital signal, the tuner does all the resolution work.
Thanks, Chris! AllI can say is that a new TV with a modern tuner makes all the difference!

All I know how to do is turn the hot spot on my phone on. After that, what do I do?

On FW, I turn on my phone's hotspot and power up my Roku stick in my TV HDMI port. I select the phone hotspot as the Wifi source on Roku settings then watch streaming TV on YouTubeTV via Roku. It works like a champ in my area. If I can receive cell data, I can watch streaming news/entertainment content.

How much data do you use watching TV? We donít really use much data so we have a rather small plan now. Thinking about upgrading the data plan but have no idea how much data gets used just streaming.

I have an unlimited data T-Mobile plan so I don't pay attention to the data used.

I activated my iPhone's hot spot and went directly to "Prime Movies" on my Smart TV. Since I'm a Prime member, now I don't just get free shipping, I also get tons of free movies! (BTW, no monthly bills.)

Horn Problems on Sandpiper

Continuing the facelift of Sandpiper, I decided to replace the entire electric horn system. The horns were corroded, leaking air and the compressor was running intermittently.

I had the entire system replaced ( horns, solenoid. pressure switch & accumulator) with the same brand (Grover) and now the compressor runs even after a 1 second blast! The time the compressor runs is 25 seconds to several minutes depending on how long the horn is used. Once it shuts off, it doesn't run again until the horn is activated again. Numerous contacts with the company have resulted in "that's the way the system was designed to work" answers. The old system, when it was working, never ran after each horn activation. ????????????
