There's still a lot of football to be played, but it is looking much better.

We're also putting together a very nice recruiting class.

Things are definitely looking better, but that game got way too close at the end. The game in Stillwater will show us a lot. BTW jag, will Voom have Saturday's PPV game?

Oooh. That is a good question. Will D*? I don't think I've ever ordered pay per view from them before.

I'm pretty sure D* will have the game. People on TexAgs have said they've ordered PPV games from D* before.

The defense does seem to have gelled quite a bit since that first game.

I was just about to post that, too. Maybe some lightning got 'em. How is KTRK coming in? Getting fairly frequent dropouts here.

Cold shower needed?

I called KBTX but got no answer. Maybe KHOU will come in ok for CSI: Miami.

Maybe they have everyone working on it? Or nobody is there at all?

MNF is coming in pretty good now. Just for kicks, I tried KXXV out of Waco at the half, and it was coming in ok. No KYLE-DT though.

Anyone else getting FOX out of Houston?? I've been watching the ball game on KRIV since I got home from bowling, no dropouts so far. Looks pretty good, especially the score right now.

I was thinking the PQ on the game wasn't quite up to snuff for HD, and checked the thread about the games on FOX. Sure enough, tonight's game isn't in HD. I hope they can get the HD feeds going as long as the reception holds up!

I tried KRIV early in the game with no success. Looks like the 'Stros will have to make the NLCS for us to get some HD (that's if D* adds FOX-HD by then).

So Lost came in one more time. I wonder how much longer my luck will continue. Dave, have you been able to catch this show in HD?

KTRK wasn't coming in for me; I turned to KXXV before it started, and had some dropouts then, and no DD 5.1 Well, did you finally get to watch the Astros game? I wish the Twins would go ahead and put away the Yankers tonight!

Got to see the game. Woo-hoo!! There were some dropouts though. The D* screen came up once and mentioned sunspots and possible interference. Thanks for letting me enjoy this one. Tomorrow I'll probably do the gamecast thing.

I tried watching it, but had no luck. I was even having issues with KHOU last during the CSIs. Man I can't wait for HD LILs.

I just noticed that KHOU and KBTX both list Survivor as HD tonight. I've never watched the show, but I thought it wasn't HD. Maybe just a glitch I guess.

Definitely a glitch. Honestly, I don't know how this show still gets good ratings. Aside from the All-Star season, it has gone downhill. The people they select now are horrible.

Here's the HD Football for this weekend:

Sat Oct 9
Tennessee @ Georgia 2:30 - KBTX-DT
LSU @ Florida 6:45 - ESPN-HD

Sun Oct 10
Giants @ Dallas 12:00 - ST, D* FOX-HD East (fingers crossed)
Vikings @ Texans 12:00 - ST, KRIV-DT
Lions @ Falcons 12:00 - ST
Raiders @ Colts 12:00 - ST
Dolphins @ Patriots 12:00 - ST
Panthers @ Broncos 3:00 - ST
Cardinals @ 49ers 3:00 - ST
Rams @ Seahawks 3:00 - ST, KRIV-DT
Bills @ Jets 3:00 - ST, KBTX-DT
Ravens @ Deadskins 7:30 - ESPN-HD

Mon Oct 11
Titans @ Packers 8:00 - KTRK-DT

Interesting weekend; there is no way to get the Boys in HD unless D* adds FOX-HD this weekend (KRIV is showing the Texans at the same time). Also, it's too bad ABC doesn't do any college football in HD. They have some great matchups this weekend.
