    Sunday Ticket HD Games

    I too was sure I had heard something about the new contract stipulating that all games be available in HD. After some research I guess I was just hearing what I wanted to hear. From the "The agreements include a commitment by CBS and FOX to phase...

    Convoluted D*/HD/Moving Question(s)

    Okay this is fairly convoluted but I will be as brief as possible. I got answers to some of these questions from CSRs but (for some odd reason) am not completely sold on their veracity. I am I guess what you would call semi-clueless on most of this stuff. Current Situation I am in Denver...

    H10-250 question

    Yes, so I can still watch recorded shows or even change channels if I am patient enough to page through the guide (which I usually am not). But once you have gotten used to the DVR world it is MADDENING to watch recorded programs without fast-forward (no FF button on the front of the box).

    H10-250 question

    I apologize if this is posted in an inappropriate place. A couple weeks ago my H10-250 quit responding to the remote. It still responds to the buttons on the front of the box. I did all the permutations of resetting the box, no good. Changed the batteries, still no good. The red light on...

    HD NFL Games

    Your friend's experience sounds very similar to mine, about 6 weeks ago I ordered a bunch of HD upgrade equipment from DirecTV, the bill being over $800 (before rebates), but when the guy showed up to install it (several hours late) he barely spoke English and didn't have the equipment, then he...

    Dumb newbie question #26

    So I wonder if Altitude HD is available on Comcast...$ aside I would hate to have to run even more cables into my house but I can't get rid of DirecTV (Sunday Ticket comes right after air, food, and water for me) and it would be cool to get all those Avs and Nuggets games in HD.

    Dumb newbie question #26

    I guess by "dumb" I meant "readily apparent to anyone who has been around the HD block a couple times". I just went HD about a month ago and have found this forum to be extremely helpful just from reading others' threads. It seems the more I know the more there is to know, and the longer it...

    Dumb newbie question #26

    OLN is advertising that they will be carrying much of their NHL coverage in HD. Similarly, one of my local sports stations (Altitude - Denver) will purportedly have HD coverage for about half of the Avalanche and Nuggets games they are televising. Am I right in assuming that this doesn't mean...

    Bad plasma picture

    Apologies if this repeats a previous post. I recently upgraded to a HR10-250 HDDVR receiver and got a new Panasonic plasma HDTV. The HD channels come in spectacular, but all other channels are awful. There is a large amount of pixelation around the edges and any detailed or moving objects or...
