    Wondering about Olympics coverage

    I am curious what we might expect to find in the way of Olympics coverage, beyond the standard network coverage. I would think that there must be C band feeds, but unfortunately I'm only set up for Ku. Anybody recall any past Winter or Summer Olympics and what kind of satellite action there...

    Olympic Soccer & BBall HD channels

    As many of you probably know, NBC has created two new channels for the Olympics with dedicated coverage (one for Soccer, One for Basketball). Satellite services (Dish & Direct) have picked up on these, as have some canle companies. I have been surfing and finding conflicting info regarding...

    Super Bowl: More than the regular broadcast?

    This year will be my first Super Bowl since installing my FTA system (9 months ago).

    Creating back-up of receiver data?

    Last night I was thinking about all the man-hours I have tied up in entering my receiver data. (Adding new satellites, editing TPs, making lists of favorites, deleting unwanted channels, etc.) I also remembered an incident 5 months ago when my receiver inexplicably hiccuped and lost all of...

    ESPN360 feeds

    College football is fast approaching, and checking schedules I see that some of the games I will want to catch are only carried by ESPN360. My high speed internet provider (Comcast) does not carry ESPN360. I am wondering if anyone has ever tripped across ESPN360 feeds. Ku or C? encrypted...
