Got the Dim Sum out of your luggage yet?

Just kidding, glad you're back at the console here in the good old USA.

I will be watching on WDIV in Detroit.

Hopefully I will see the opening, but it might be preempted due to local breaking news currently going on in this market.

Too bad NBC can't manage to sync the sound with the video for any of its live HD broadcasts.

it's sync'd perfect here... possibly a provider issue...

initial pq pretty darn good... nice turf... good color... not as much pixelation on the "reds" as last year... very minimal pixelation on close up motion...

sound is good and immersive, as usual... seems a TAD biased to the front, but that could be me...

fios, south jersey...

WNBC-DT NYC FIOS TV.

So NBC stays with the score bar. Was it at the bottom of the screen last season.

Unlike most broadcasts from Giants stadium, the main field cams are very sharp tonight.
I don't see any swimming grass, just a bit of heat coming off the turf.

Macroblocking is about the same as last year if not just a little less.

This is the best NBC has ever looked.
Just fantastic, especially compared to normal for my area.

Pictures looks like typical NBC football from last year...subpar. Via Cox cable in Phoenix (KPNX-DT with 1 subchannel)

It look as good as CBS. The macroblocking I do see, I attribute to the 12Mbps bitrate of my local NBC affiliate rather than the source as in past year.

WNBC-DT via Cablevision.

Looks slightly better than last year so far. Less macroblocking (had a few moments during the opening sequence). Very little swimming grass. Audio in sync (can't comment about 5.1).

Watching in a hotel in San Fran on KNTV-DT, not sure how they are getting the signal, be it DTV, E* or OTA, but lots of macroblocking here as well.

But the room has 42" LG. I'm happy.

Oh, also, love the new way of doing lineups.

What's up with those donald duck shoes the skins are wearing. Makes it look like penalty flags on every play.

Out local can only pass DD2.0, and the crowd noise out of the surrounds was annoying. Had to disconnect them.

Crowd noise seemed to be going in and out here at the end of the half, though the commentators were fine. Didn't get to watch anything before that due to the ridiculous 4PM start. KPNX-DT Phoenix via Cox cable.
