It dumbfounds me that Matt Jones (QB) is the ONLY returning offensive starter from last year on that team. (Of course, he is a big starter to have back... but still...)

Finally caught some Cowboys in HD via Sportscenter, and in HD, you can really see how ugly that field is in Minnesota. Good thing is that they are on KBTX in HD this week. I just hope the Browns return to their old ways.

As for the Ags, my outlook for the season was pretty dismal following the Utah loss, but after watching other Big XII teams struggle this week, I've regained some of my optimism. Hopefully, we can fill Kyle up this weekend.

Woo-hoo! Looks like we'll also get the Texans @ KC on Sept 26 in HD on KBTX.

Any luck getting MNF tonight? Not much luck here; very sporadic.

Looks like we'll find out about the D* NBC waiver thing on Thursday. NBC E/W (ch 82 and 83) are listed in the online program guide starting in the am.

I was able to watch MNF on KTRK, with pretty frequent drop-outs though. Good thing I wasn't really into it, or I might have had to switch to the SD version. All of the Houston stations had drop-outs last night, I noticed. I was going to Tivo LAX, but decided not to due to the breakups.

That's good to hear y'all are getting NBC. I'll just have to wait for FOX and ABC in Houston. Luckily NBC comes in really good for me, so I'm not too bummed.

Does anyone get guide data for KRIV 26-1? I get data for 26-2, but not the main channel. This is with a Samsung 360.

I get 26-2 only on both the HD-TiVo and my Zenith stb. I didn't know there was another channel.

Hmm. I've always watched on 26-1. Maybe I should try 26-2 sometime.

There are a couple of great match ups in the SEC this week. LSU @ Auburn should be a good one too.

Monday should be entertaining also. Go Vikes!

I'm flipping through the channels this evening and I've stopped on KAMU-DT. It appears that there's some local programming in HD. It's boring as hell, but the picture looks fantastic. The show is "TV Magazine with Suzan ???".

I wasn't aware that KAMU had HD cameras. I thought they only had 480p 16x9 cameras. Maybe we'll see more local HD events on KAMU.

I wish they would quit showing the tail end of all these games on CBS!! Let's get on with the 3:00 game! To make matters worse, KBTX couldn't seem to decide whether to show us the end of the Titans/Colts in SD or HD, very annoying.

Game looked pretty good but you can tell the stadium is really getting old and crappy.....

Dallas looked so/so, really should have lost the game except clevland played even worse. But a win is a win.

At least A&M dominated

Was anybody able to watch MNF last night? It started to come in a little in the second half, but there were too many break ups for my wife's liking.

It was breaking up too much for me, too. Looked good when it was coming in though. Good God, the Astros game looks horribly fuzzy tonight!! I'm getting spoiled on HD programs this season.

FYI... I'm back as a citizen of B/CS and am contentedly watching NBC in HD over D*.

Glad to have you back...I mean sorry to see you go. Have you noticed any audio sync problems on NBC West yet? The other night during Las Vegas it was irritating (and that show's dialog is the best ).

I have noticed the video on the NBC-East feed drops out for a second periodically. Anyone else have that?

I have not watched the west feed on a regular basis.

Last night, the one second dropouts on the EAST feed were significant in my opinion (L&O SVU) and came in every 30 seconds or so. I'm really hoping this was just a flukey night.

Anybody else catch Lost? Got most of it off of KTRK on the HD-TiVo. Only an occasional drop out. The sound was pretty d@mn good. Because of the story, the show might only be good for one season, but at least I'm looking forward to next Wednesday.

I Tivo-ed it also while catching up on some shows from earlier in the week, hope I didn't get too many drop-outs. I turned to it a couple times to see how the reception was, but didn't actually watch it. Looks like my Tivo will be busy this season!!
