    ESPN - Black

    Not if you like college football. They are playing on ESPN right now, I believe.

    DirecTV tips

    For my Dish install, the guy used the railing on my balcony and put it on a standard clamp, which didn't cost me.

    when all channels are HD

    As long as the receivers are MPEG4 capable, couldn't they just down-convert everything for the viewers setup from the box?

    ice storm

    While I am glad that I don't have ice on my dish, this whole process just sounds like a hell of a lot of fun! Waterguns?! Poisonous fluids?! Cannons?! What a great day...

    New HD channel?

    Of course! It must be the same marketing geniuses that were behind naming the "Entertainment Channel" E! instead of just plain old boring E

    New HD channel?

    I tried looking this up and Wikipedia says that Disney Xtreme Digital is some kind of online service. It does not spell it out for the channel's entry, which I thought was weird.

    NBA on ABC looking like CRAP?

    Thanks man! I appreciate any help you can give. He has two: Sony BDP-S500 Sony BDP-S2000ES (an expensive beauty) I can't get SN's right now, because I am at "work." My quick search on the net found people being in agreement that the remote's don't support blu-rays. None of the Sony DVD codes...

    NBA on ABC looking like CRAP?

    I was at my girlfriend's dad's house helping him set up some blu-ray players (PS, why can't the freakin D* remotes control a blu-ray player!!!!), and I switched to the game and it looked awful yesterday. I mean, other channels looked fine (like ESPN, or CBS, which I checked for comparison). It...

    C-Span HD

    No, I don't think you understand what I am trying to say. There are shows that report news on both of those networks. Those shows should just report the news, no leaning to one side or the other as much as possible. Then, there are editorial shows with the pundits from both sides shoveling their...

    C-Span HD

    But they didn't even try to have some "fair" reporter there... They were kinda like, "Oh, screw it... We can't get any of our anchors to do this, so just put Keith out there..." It's would be like an NFL sportscaster cheering on one team; it is unprofessional and annoying. Save the commentary...

    C-Span HD

    Ok, I will willingly admit to being a "conservative", and I recognize that Fox has its bias and MSNBC has its bias. Now I am fine with that, and don't mind getting different points of views, particularly on editorial or discussion format shows. However, it is MSNBC's antics like using Keith...

    Directv Inauguration Mix Channel

    I was watching the sports mix channel at my girlfriend's mom's house, and when I selected the channel, it went to the HD version, where possible. Not sure if it makes a difference, but her guide is set to ignore any SD version of HD feeds (a very helpful feature that I wish I could find on Dish...

    New HD Channels This Week?

    I know that southpark already had one HD episode air on Direct (Imagination land on the 101) and they are releasing their 12th season on Blu-Ray for the first time, so that has to be good news in terms of Comedy Central HD programming.

    Do any of you subscribe to the NFL Ticket?

    Fair enough; still not constant. Is the "value" of the exact same product (minus the HD offering) increasing that much each year, or do they just not know what to price the darn package at? BTW, I would at least be interested in this package, but my choice of provider has precluded that...

    Do any of you subscribe to the NFL Ticket?

    It would be interesting to see if the NFL opened it up to all providers. The issue will be price. Should the NFL dictate a standard rate? What should that rate be? Given the price fluctuation since its inception, it seems like they aren't sure what customers will tolerate. What about allowing...
