Where's your antenna located, your tower?

I'm getting the occasional breakup, but nothing too bad.

Freakin' Pujols!

Yeah, a few breakups for me, too, better not happen at critical times! Should have walked Pooh-holes.

Hopefully KRIV will come in well tomorrow so we can compare it to D*.

its a crappy winegard on the voom dish (its a system they have, little antenna hookup on top of the dish).... its maybe 15 ft off the ground but it seems to work ok.

One thing I have been wondering about lately, when D* rolls out the Spaceway sats and starts providing HD locals in the Houston market, will that require a professional install? If so, we may have to get pretty creative!

I don't know if you D* subscribers already know this or not, but I'll post it anyway. This weekend (Oct 15-17) if you have Total Choice, you'll get Total Choice Premier for free. That means Showtime-HD and HBO-HD will be available for those of us who don't subscribe to those packages. Just a little FYI.

I knew about the free preview, but wasn't sure if it included the HD channels. I guess I'll have to check out a few over the weekend.

Well I'm guessing it includes the HD channels since they come with the HBO and Showtime packages. I've been wrong before though. Remember when I said to stick a fork in the 'Stros?

Well, I'm not going to talk about tonight. Better off left alone.

However, I did want to point out to anyone with DNS waivers at D* that they might want to do everything they can to not lose them at this point. I've got a buddy who was just turned down by all major networks. This is the first I've heard of NBC and ABC turning down people in our area. I think it is likely because locals are expected to be up shortly.

Just an FYI...

Do you plan on moving to Houston when HD locals come on next year or stay in CS?

You're kidding me, right? When HD locals come on in Houston I will be a Houston resident faster than how long it would take me to kick Dan Miceli's ass if I ran into him in an alley. (Which is pretty damn quick at the moment.)

LOL

Hopefully it will happen next year. Maybe I'll even have a HDTivo by then.

I'm not saying anything about tonight, either!
About waivers, I have seen that trend coming. I used to have NBC and ABC, changed my address locally and only got NBC then.

That's a bummer.

They still had a good run though. Now if they'd find a way to re-sign Beltran.
