AIUI until it is able to be selected from the guide it won't be available to add to your channels....i.e. its not there yet.
Pretty sure that is correct, I had some freak thing happen a couple of weeks ago where TNT-HD disappeared from my guide and I went to the favorites list and it didn't show up and there was no way to even add it to my favorite's list.
The anal idiot that I am, in my experiments between the two, I'm beginning to think the timing is in the channel selected (please don't ask me to explain why that would be, because I don't know; I can only report what I see). Some channels can be as fast as a second before you see a picture, while others can take as long as 3 seconds, regardless of the display setting. Just my anal observations. YMMV.
As you anal idiots know, a split second can seem like an eternity.
That's not too surprising. It can depend on a lot of factors, like the compression that is being applied on that channel at that moment. The machine cannot even start to display something until it sees an I frame in the data stream. Channels that are highly compressed will likely take longer to display than those that have less compression applied.
Evil is charming and beautiful. It makes you doubt yourself. It asks for one small compromise after another until it whittles you down, and it functions best when no one believes in it.-JOA
I see Directv doesn't offer streaming of the SEC Network ... I hate that, I wanted to checkout a little bit of the Kentucky basketball game yesterday at work, but couldn't of course. It was depressing looking at all the providers that offered it and no Directv anywhere.
Ah. Guess it depends on your ISP. I get it, so I don't think much about it. My bad.
I think it's more than just ISP now, I have comcast as an ISP, but I think you have to be an Xfinity sub and ESPN has to be in your tv package. I guess it cost too much for Directv to get streaming rights, I'd hate for them to cut into their exorbitant profit margins.
