I really have no idea what San Juan’s cable TV providers are doing with these monitors-of-monitors showing oscilloscopes doing whatever it is that oscilloscopes do on my hotel TV menu, but if they’re trying to seriously trip me out, then misión cumplida!

In all sincerity, I prefer this to the cable TV on offer at hotels closer to home.

  1. Saw something very similar to this in the Okanagan near where the Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory is located, and it turned out to be some sort of output from that. But since that’s the only one in the country, it can’t be exactly the same thing, so I guess I’m of no help 🙂

    Thanks Paul, I was thinking it was some kind of monitoring of some kind of activity — but can’t for the life of me think why they put it on TV. Maybe it’s storm or wave activity?

    This is a scan of the cable spectrum that allows technicians to diagnose problems on a cable feed. It allows them to see the condition of the signal when it was sent out from the head end, so they can easily compare with the condition it is in when it is received.

    Expect to see more of this with the writers strike! 🙂

    Bob, that makes a little too much sense for my liking, but thanks anyway.

    If that’s the case, then bring on the writer’s strike!
