    Opening Day and No Hd!

    been happy with D* for a while but getting annoying now. living in connecticut we get screwed. not in ny dma and not in boston dma. so no yes/sny/nesn in hd to only god knows when. and still no abc in hd either(LIN). that free hd-dvr from the antichrist cablevision is looking better and better.
