Thanks to reporter David Hall for this article.  A popular version of "Popcorn Time" has been shut down for a variety of reasons, including alleged charges of video piracy.  You're probably better off sticking to legal entitities such as Netflix.  Aloha, Russ.

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, December 27, 2015 11:14 PM

Thanks to reporter David Hall for this insight on the challenging and often frustrating life of a broadcast engineer. Before I retired from the commercial broadcast business several  years ago, I was assigned to help the station's contract engineer maintain our chain of 6 AM/FM stations on Hawaii Island.  This assignment was in addition to my regular duties as the news and public affairs director.  I spent many weekends and nights keeping keeping our stations on the air and helping the contract engineer complete several major projects, including studio rebuilds, installation of equipment, and repairing transmitters and remote equipment.  This was no 9 to 5 job.  I learned a lot of interesting and fascinating things from transmitter design to FCC regulations.  Of course, being a FCC-licensed amateur radio operator (Extra Class--KH6JRM) surely helped.  I found my extra duties very enlightening and educational.  Broadcast engineers are underpaid for the work they do. As the late Paul Harvey once remarked: "Now you know the rest of the story."  Excellent article. Aloha, Russ.

A great reference source for those of us working in the broadcast field.  It helps to speak the technical language of the engineers that maintain your station.  Besides, this is part of your continuing education as a broadcaster.  Aloha, Russ.

Thanks to reporters David Hall and Jonathan A. Bennett for a look at this truly amazing device from Sharp.  The resolution of this 8K television receiver is way beyond what we have now in the market place.  The price is rather steep ($133,000), so I'll take a pass until my mortgage and other debts are paid off.  Aloha, Russ.
