Everybody set to do their OTA vs HD Leader vs Voom comparisons of the Olympics in HD tomorrow? I'm just hoping the D* HD feed comes on without any problems. I won't be around to call them, and I'm also debating which OTA to record - KCEN or KPRC. Anybody know how the Houston NBC has been coming in the last couple of days?
I get KCEN pretty well.... KPRC is ok. But Ill be watching VOOM if I actually get it. with the last email I have no clue whats going on with it now but I do have the NBC-HD channel in my guide and I have the "upgrade" msg so I should get it.
At least it is in your guide - that's what I need D* to do so I can set the TiVo for the opening ceremony. As for reception, KCEN comes in at pretty much the same strength for me at all times of the day (70-80%) while KPRC does awesome in the evening (90+%). Can only TiVo one of them though if I get the D* feed.
Isnt DirecTV and even bigger question right now than VOOM... They have only "announced" that the O&O stations will get the feed.... did they ever add the others that DISH says qualify for the HD feed? I noticed Dallas is O&O but Htown isnt (atleast according to D*)
Originally posted by dave99ag Just noticed that 2-2 is now the HD channel for KPRC and it lists Olympics in HDTV. 2-1 is just SD.
Yeah, I saw this post the other day and was wondering what he meant, I guess they made the change pretty recently. Unfortunately the HD-Tivo doesn't show guide data except for the 2-1 now. Something else to get fixed soon, hopefully before the Olympics and the next eye candy on Leno!!
Go to channels on the HD-TiVo, clear scanned channels, and then rescan. The one without guide data will disappear. Of course, the SD channel (12-2) still has no guide data, and 15-2 shows up with guide data for the SD channel with the HD video. Oh well, at least we have guide data for the HD channel.
Originally posted by dave99ag I did for the first quarter, but not much after that. It looked good, but you can only watch so much of pre-season football with teams you don't care about.
I know what you mean. I just started watching a few minutes ago, and was about to turn channels when these questionable calls happened and then the Macro-blocking. Besides, there is a certain satisfaction in watching overpaid whiners having to play in the rain!!

Where are those screen shots? You know it is in the guide permanently. All those emails to www.zap2it.com finally paid off. In fact, this week when I emailed Alejandro (I think that is his name), I stopped explaining the KAMU situation. I just asked if he could add guide data to 12-1 and just leave all the 15-? stuff alone.

well thats good to know... i thought voom may have been losing the sat link when it happened... voom receiver got a software update and i havent bothered to reset it yet (gonna do that when i go to bed) so its been a little buggy tonight.
