Since the special HD feed for the SB is apparently MPEG2 receivable, I think it would be useful to try to get a correlation of Dish HD subs that are watching the Superbowl and how they're getting it.

1. Watching in HD on the special Dish feed
2. Watching in HD from Dish HD Locals channel
3. Watching in HD from OTA signal using Dish receiver
4. Watching in HD from non-Dish source (cable, "D", local bar, friend, etc)
5. Watching in SD from Dish analog distants
6. Watching in SD from Dish analog locals.
7. Not watching Superbowl at all.

WLS-DT via Comcast and 250, for comparison purposes. So far, KABC looks softer on a 5 year old 55" RPTV. Can't compare to OTA because my 8VSB is currently fried.

I voted OTA using DISH receiver,but,it seems the Nashville ABC affiliate is either having transmission tower problems or someone at the station kinda forgot to flip the switch.Anyone in the mid TN area having similar problems with this issue?I am using a 921.It is picking up the NBC and FOX affiliates with good signals.ABC signal is hosed.:mad:

9.52% not watching the Super Bowl? That's not possible...even if you don't like football you're still going to tune-in to check out the spectacle.

Don't forget foreign born nationals, they probably care as much about the Superbowl as many of us do about World Cup. I have never watched a soccer game on TV nor do I ever plan to.

The good news is my latest chat with a CSR. sweet Mary from Bangladesh, revealed that once (if) I make the MPEG4 jump and since I get networks east and west I will be able to get LA HD on 129.

Watching OTA BUT the ABC feed in Phily is S&%$$*. Lots of pixalation jerky pictures. At least lat year wen the TURKEYS I mean Eagles were on Fox the game was great. The comercials aren't suffering the same problem maybe too much snow in Detroit. BTW Steelers 7 Seahawks 3 !!!!!!!!

Im watching WLS-DT via OTA and Dish channel 250... WLS is alot better than 250 from what I can see ;) but they both look good :)

To be fair, I don't know how much better the (relatively newer) Motorola 6412 converts 720p to 1080i than my 6000.

I am watching in HD via OTA and my TV's tuner. I was having audio sync problems with the 211 so I hooked the OTA straight to my Sony TV.

In L.A. it's OTA all the way. LIL HD is just a waste here. The real thing is so much better in PQ and quantity.
