I'm pretty much just Aggie football, but I do enjoy watching any other good games. I will probably watch more NFL than I normally do due to HD. It depends on how much my wife will tollerate.

I probably won't watch as much NFL now that Ricky retired.[/sarcasm]

Ricky must be smoking some really good grass over there in Hawaii. Honestly, given how much of a leader he has supposedly been during the offseason - to do a 180 like that... He has definitely got some screws loose up there (not that we didn't already know that).

Well being a student I could honestly care less about NFL.... it just doesnt seem as real (when do you ever see those guys cry when they lose to a rival). So Sunday Ticket is no loss for me.

The NFL has lost some of its luster with free agency and parity. Guys like Ronnie Lott, who had his finger cut off during a game and kept playing, are few and far between.

What the NFL did was pull a NBA/MLB and have the primary driving factor be $ and not the game.....

You guys are crazy. The NFL is the fastest growing hot commodity in all of sports. MLB, NBA, NHL are all going down in revenue, fanbase, etc. while the NFL continues to grow rapidly.

I agree wholeheartedly with you in that I strongly prefer college football to professional football, but I can't live without the NFL (as opposed to easily being able to live without MLB or the NBA - not that I do, of course )

I think in the end, we will all owe a debt of gratitude to the NFL as they seem (or at least their coverage) to be pushing the HD boundaries for us. Once they are done broadcasting football, all those cameras and HD trucks have to be used for something...

So, do you remember if the Cowboys games were blacked out on ST if shown on our local? That is pretty much our only hope of seeing Da' Boys in HD this year, but if they are blacked out I don't know if it's worth it. How would you like to add a receiver or two to your account for a few months??

I wish I could tell you. I just don't remember. I have grown up hating the Cowboys my entire life (born and raised in Houston) so rarely do I go out of my way to watch them and I never choose any of them for my fantasy teams because I don't want to pull for them. Their having Dat Nguyen and Bill Parcells has absolutely been killing me because there are now small parts of me that want to root for them.

That being said, I don't even remember any of the SD games ever being blacked out last year (including the Texans when they were on KBTX), but I simply might not remember - HD was never an issue and I always could have just flipped channels. However, keep in mind that we didn't have locals via D* last year. IF we have local channels by the Fall I would suspect it would become easier for D* to tell if our local channel is covering a particular game.

This could be interesting for those who have waivers for NBC if true. The poster claims to work for D* in L.A.
http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...hreadid=186814
Hopefully there is more good news coming soon for HD'ers from D*. The suspense is killing me!!

That's some pretty good news. I get NBC pretty good, but it'll be nice to have a fallback for the Olympics. I'll be really happy if they add ABC. That's the one station I have the worst time with.

Might be time to take the tower down (yeah right!).

Fox O&O = FoxHD East & West
ABC O&O = ABCHD East & West
NBC "grandfathered" waiver = NBCHD East & West (we'll see)
CBS = KBTX
PBS = KAMU

The Big 4 in HD reliably - never thought I'd see it happen. Not even in 2006.

How can you get a waiver for NBC if you have Houston locals?

Dallas is the ideal market, but I don't think we can pickup their spotbeam from here.

I had an NBC waiver before I "moved" to Houston. After the move, my NBC East and West distant feeds stayed on. I've kept them as part of my programming for this possible waiver scenario. I don't know if I'll get the NBCHD feeds. I'm afraid if they don't just come on, they might get deactivated if I have to call and explain I have a waiver.

Same here. After I moved, I still get NBC E/W. Hope when the HD feeds come they get turned on automatically.

Anybody notice anything screwy about KAMU? Just looked on my Zenith stb, and I had 12-1, 12-2, and 12-3. 12-1 had no picture, 12-2 was the HD feed, and 12-3 was the SD feed.

Haha, knowing direcTV they will drop your local before they add any new hd chans, they usually check to make sure only qualified people get it (part of the agreement usually). You can hope but I wouldnt expect too much.

Does the SD station info screen with the KYLE 28 and KYLE-DT 29 count?

Figures that we can now get guide information for stations we can't receive (KYLE) and can't get guide data for stations we generally can (KAMU).

I'll believe NBC-HD when I see it. They took my NBC feed away when I added Houston Locals. That would freakin' figure. I could switch back to national NBC/ABC feeds through waivers I guess - but the reality is that those will go away once they give us B/CS locals and leave me without FOX. Sticking with Houston would give me ABC and Fox, but leave me in the lurch with NBC...

Ah, the trials and tribulations of not having a freakin' giant huge-ass antenna in my backyard...
